27. Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets can’t be accused of not trying, they simply just don’t have many NBA players at their disposal. Lionel Hollins is trying his best to turn water into wine, but there’s not a lot more that could be extracted from this current group.

Brook Lopez is doing exactly what he was paid for, filling the role of strong inside scorer and reliable rebounder. Thaddeus Young makes for a good stablemate too, but Brooklyn’s real problem is their lack of guard depth. At this rate, draft night is going to be a painful one with a pick likely transferring to Boston.
