Brooklyn Nets: A New Chapter

Grace Hall, Writer


The Nets have made a whole new power team and everyone is excited to see the newly signed Durant and Kyrie play together in Brooklyn. But not just them, Brooklyn has added so many more assets as well!


Kevin Durant tore his Achilles in the NBA finals last year when he was on the Golden State Warriors. After they lost in the NBA finals against the Toronto Raptors, The NBA player announced on Instagram Sunday, June 30, 2019. he would sign a contract with the Brooklyn Nets. This is when the four-year, $164 million deal happened! He has to sit out the 2019-2020 season due to his injury on his Achilles, but don’t be fooled, a healthy Kevin Durant is an All-Star player and MVP level player. He even has his line of Nike shoes.


Kyrie Irving agreed to a four-year, $141 million deal with the Nets, and will join Kevin Durant in Brooklyn. Before Kyrie agreed to this deal he played with the Boston Celtics. He did okay in Boston but they didn’t do amazingly so Kyrie knew that joining up with KD would be the right thing for him. He was injured at the beginning of the season but during playing in the 2019-2020 season, he had to undergo shoulder surgery and will come back in the 2020-2021 season along with Kevin Durant. He has his line of shoes with Nike just like Kevin Durant! And he knows that with his passing and scoring abilities along with defense can help his team win.


All they need is a  veteran center and they got one because DeAndre Jordan signed a four-year $40 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets to team up with the newly-signed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to become one of the new upcoming power teams for the 2020-2021 season. Some of DeAndre’s best assets are his defensive and rebounding skills.


One thing they need is a new coach to help them to win games next season. The new coach is Steve Nash who was a former player who played for the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, and Los Angeles Lakers. He was an 8-time All-Star and won MVP (most valuable player) back to back years in 2005 and 2006. After his 19-year long career, he retired in 2015. Then just 5 short years later in 2020, he was signed to be the new coach of the Nets. Everybody is excited to see what he will do with these great players.
