Key Offseason Decisions
- How much can Brooklyn afford to offer Joe Harris to retain him? Harris is a great fit for the Nets when Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving return, but Brooklyn is already over the tax. If the tax is a concern, could a team offer Harris more than the Nets will match?
- With the returns of Durant and Irving looming, does Brooklyn look to rebalance the roster by moving another high usage player like Caris LeVert or Spencer Dinwiddie?
- How do the Nets fill the hole at power forward? This is the most glaring need on the roster.
Projected Team Salary
Brooklyn’s projections are pretty easy to make. The one question may be picking up Garrett Temple’s team option. He’s worth at least $5M as a veteran combo-guard, so it’s likely he’ll be back. Beyond that, the Nets will retain rights for their free agents, as they all have some value to the team. (@KeithSmithNBA)

-$54,142,027 (26th out of 30). $892,918 over the Luxury Tax.
