Because Durant will not be able to play next season, the starting small forward is definitely Prince, The guard line starts with Irving and Levere’s partner, Kuptz, who is tough at the power forward position, may start, but he won’t play for a long time. Dinwiddie is still the sixth man, leading the bench player,Jordan is more qualified at the center position, but many people think that Allen is more suitable for starting. It is expected that the team will take care of Jordan's face!
Some people questioned why Joe Harris couldn’t start? Harris has an outstanding three-pointer. In the 2019 All-Star Game, he won the three-point contest with his brilliant performance. He has the firstThe strength of the serve, once someone is injured or in a bad state, he will be put in the starting line at any time! As mentioned above, Kuruz will not play for too long. When playing a small lineup, Harris must be a very important tactical point!
As you can see from the chart, the team next season In his salary book, Durant, Irving and Dinwiddie have more than 10 million, and the salary of Jr. Jordan and Joe HarrisThe water is second, and the remaining players are less than 5 million. Although Deron Williams has left the league, he still receives a salary from the Nets. He also occupies a salary of 5.47 million. Chandler signed. It is the basic salary of 2.6 million veterans, the team only needs to bear 1.62 million, and the remaining part of the league!

There is still a distance of 15.46 million U.S. dollars from the hard salary cap triggered by signing first and then changing! The team can use the full mid-class 9.258 million to continue to complete the reinforcement, or use the veteran's basic salary to fill the vacancy!
