With Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving out of action right now, the Brooklyn Nets aren’t expected to do a lot this season. Instead, they are focusing their attention on next season, and they have big plans to become one of the biggest forces in the Eastern Conference.

They’re not only waiting to have a healthy Durant and Irving back; rumors are circulating that the Nets will be active on the trade market this summer, seeking some major roster upgrades.

A big factor that plays in their favor is that they have several trade assets that they could use to engage in a blockbuster deal in the offseason.
