Trevor Booker    F  Nets

 

 

Trevor Booker said his top goal during the offseason is to be more "consistent and confident" shooting the 3-point shot. "I think if I can get that down, a lot more will open up; it’ll make it easier to drive to the hole and then I can show off my passing ability," Booker said. Another thing I want to work on is my defense. Even though I’ve been told that I’ve been pretty good on the defensive end, I feel like I can take another step forward." The 29-year-old forward was a nice surprise in 2016-17 and averaged career-highs in points (10.0), rebounds (8.0), assists (1.9) and steals (1.1) while shooting 51.6 percent from the field. The Nets have two first-round picks in the draft and plenty of cap space, so Booker's competition for playing time will likely be tougher as he enters the final year of his deal.

Luis Scola    F/C  Nets

 

 

Luis Scola said that he may consider playing another season. After being waived by the Nets back in February, Scola said he was leaning toward retirement after no other NBA team picked him up over the remainder of the regular season. If Scola plays in Europe, he said he'd only consider playing for Baskonia. "It'd very tough for me to play in Europe for a team that's not Baskonia, I'm so linked to people there. I'd only play for Baskonia," Scola said.

Anthony Bennett    F  Nets

 

 

Anthony Bennett was cut by his Turkish pro team on Monday. Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, was averaging 9.0 ppg and 6.4 rpg in 23 minutes per game for Turkish Basketbol Süper Ligi (BSL). The team cut Bennett in order to make room for former Atlanta Hawk Pero Antic

Luis Scola    F/C  Nets

 

 

Luis Scola said he's leaning towards retiring. He was waived by the Nets in February because he was hoping to join a contender, but unfortunately that didn't work out. Scola just turned 36 years old Sunday, so it wouldn't be a surprise if this was the end of the road for the veteran. In 36 appearances for Brooklyn, Scola averaged 5.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.5 triples in 12.8 minutes per game.

Andrea Bargnani    F/C  Nets

 

 

Andrea Bargnani is negotiating a buyout with his EuroLeague team, Baskonia. The former No. 1 overall pick signed a two-year deal last July. However, he was injured in February and has yet to return to action. It's unlikely that Bargs ever returns to the NBA. He is expected to seek a new deal to stay in Europe.

Brook Lopez    C  Nets

 

 

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson had nothing but praise for Brook Lopez at his final press conference of the season on Monday. Atkinson called Lopez "one of the elite centers in the league" and that he was proud of the way he conditioned and adapted his game to Brooklyn's new system. Lopez is entering the final year of his contract and will surely be the subject of numerous trade rumors all the way up to the deadline in February of 2018, but the Nets haven't given any indication that they want to move on from their franchise center. He averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 boards, 1.8 triples and 1.7 blocks, and his ADP would likely go up if the Nets look like they will be more competitive next season.

Isaiah Whitehead    G  Nets

 

 

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said Isaiah Whitehead proved that he can play three positions. The 2016 second-round pick showed glimpses of his potential for the Nets this season, averaging 7.4 points, 2.6 assists, 2.5 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks. However, he also had 1.9 turnovers in 22.5 minutes per game and shot just 40.2 percent from the field. If he can put together a strong offseason, Whitehead could be a key combo guard off the bench for the Nets in 2017-18. We'll be watching him closely at summer league.

Bryon Scott was betrayed by J. Kidd and the Nets now it's the Lakers. I see a pattern emerging. https://t.co/VFyseZqhgD
