How does Brooklyn take the next step?

I believe they have wired that they plan to use some of their young talent to acquire a third star along Kyrie and Durant. Now we can have a healthy debate here about whether Caris LeVert is that third star, and they can make the decision that he is. But my feeling and reading the tea leaves, attentive to what Sean Marks said and also aware of some of the conversations they had during the trade deadline where some put their toes in the water on some things I think they are swinging to the fence when it comes out of season.

I also think the Nets will try to trade for a third star. It’s the natural direction of a team that just signed two stars, and Irving seems restless.

But I would also warn: every team wants a different star. Brooklyn captivating teams about their stars for the trading deadline isn’t necessarily telling. The importance of those conversations can easily be overestimated. It depends on their tenor.

Yet Dinwiddie, LeVert and Allen are all talented with the potential to perform even better elsewhere. That should intrigue other teams.

Star trades usually require a dissatisfied star. Teams rarely move a star without an internal push, including an approaching free desk. There is currently no clear target.

But expect the nets to be hunting.
