According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Nets "intend to use some of their young talent to acquire a third star along with Kyrie [Irving] and [Kevin] Durant."
Speaking on his "Hoop Collective" podcast, Windhorst believes the Nets are willing to shake up their roster to add an established star to the core of KD and Kyrie. "Now, we can get enter a healthy debate here about whether Caris LeVert is that third star and they make the decision that he is. But my feel, by reading the tea leaves, paying attention to what Sean Marks has said and also being aware of some conversations they had at the trade deadline, which was sticking the toe in the water on some things, I think they're going to swing for the fences whenever the season comes," said Windhorst. "They're going to have to potentially hire a coach that is going to help them do that." Mar 31 9:27 am (EST)
