The Brooklyn Nets fell short of championship expectations as James Harden and Kyrie Irving were hampered by injuries at different points in the playoffs. Both stars and Kevin Durant will look to fulfill those expectations next season when they’re fully healthy, but there’s uncertainty whether Brooklyn’s veteran supporting cast will return.
“If we’re not injured, and me and Kyrie are on the floor, it’s a totally different conversation,” Harden said following Brooklyn’s Game 7 loss to Milwaukee. “We can’t talk about that because that wasn’t the case. It’s a part of basketball. You’ve just got to try to stay healthy, and I’m sure the front office will try to bring in more players around me, KD, and Kyrie.”
With that in mind, HoopsHype polled five NBA executives to get their thoughts on the free agency values of Spencer Dinwiddie, Blake Griffin, Bruce Brown, and Jeff Green heading into the offseason and whether they will return to Brooklyn next season.
