The Brooklyn Nets have been creative in their attempt to start from scratch after selling away the future of the franchise five years ago hunting for a championship that never came. Two months after capping a third straight losing season Jeff Skinner Jersey , the Nets hope their latest acquisitions might be part of the solution.
Brooklyn continued its rebuild Thursday night, selecting Dzanan Musa with the 29th overall pick and Rodions Kurics at No. 40 in the NBA draft.
Musa was taken with the pick acquired from the Toronto Raptors in a trade last July, which also landed forward DeMarre Carroll.
The Nets have been trying to salvage something of the previous drafts after the last regime sent three unprotected first-round picks in 2014, 2016 and 2018 to the Boston Celtics and the right to swap first round picks in the 2017 draft for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry.
The trade netted Brooklyn a disappointing second-round exit that season and sent the organization into a downward spiral with no draft assets to show for it.
So now, the Nets are looking abroad.
Brooklyn has invested heavily in its international scouting department since New Zealand-born general manager Marks took over in February 2016, and that group led them to Musa and Kurics.
Musa, 19-year-old from Bosnia and Herzegovina Chris Tierney Jersey , spent the last three seasons with KK Cedevita, leading them to the Croatian League championship. At 6-foot-9, he averaged 13.3 points and shot 46.2 percent from the field in 30 league games.
Brooklyn was impressed with what they had seen at the international level from Musa, who has been playing professionally since the age of 16.
”I think from scouting perspective we’ve enjoyed watching him play. Very dynamic,” general manager Sean Marks said. ”Obviously his offensive skills are pretty special. (A good) size for (his) position. He has been playing at a very, very high level. A very competitive young man.”
Kurocs, a 6-foot-9 prospect, was tabbed by draft experts in years’ past as a first-round selection but sat mostly on the bench for FC Barcelona in the Spanish ACB League and in Euroleague competition this past season. He averaged 1.4 points in 10 games.
”I am not sure why he was there when we picked Joel Armia Jersey Kids , but he is a guy that we had been targeting for some time,” Marks said. ”We’re thrilled to get our hands on Rodions.”
Marks said he expects both players to join the Nets roster for the upcoming season.
Musa has a $1 million buyout clause with KK Cedevita. Rodions’ contract calls for a $4 million fee to free him up from his Spanish club.
”There is a lot of development there with their bodies and so forth. Again, I think both (are) really great development pieces for our coaching staff, performance (and) so forth to get their hands on,” Marks said. ”I am intrigued to what they can do for both player. Playing in an elite level in Europe for quite some time, I think that transition that we talked about before will hopefully won’t be seamless.”
Brooklyn also drafted at the 45th spot, taking Kentucky shooting guard Hamidou Diallo, and traded his rights to the Charlotte Hornets as part Wednesday’s deal for Dwight Howard , who is expected to be bought out by the Nets.

As the Commissioner begins his 13th year on the job, he’s not in luck when it comes to how folks feel about his job performance.
Peter King engaged in a sociological experiment for his new Football Morning in America column, asking the simple question of whether folks approve or disapprove of the job that Roger Goodell has done since embarking on his journey as the captain of the Shield in 2006.
Of more than 28,000 who responded, 79 percent said no.
Seventy-nine percent. That’s a banana republic re-election rate, not the result of a poll question that entails true polarity.
King also shared six comments from readers who explained their disdain for Goodell, summing it up with this observation: “I can鈥檛 imagine a scenario in which Goodell can turn around his image — and I don鈥檛 see much of an effort by the league to try. For a league so powerful and successful, this is a conundrum that the NFL cannot make go away.”
But here’s the thing. The NFL doesn’t want it to go away. The NFL realizes that Goodell provides cover for owners who control the sport from behind a curtain while Goodell serves as (as Tom Curran on NBC Sports Boston puts it) the world’s highest-paid pin cushion. Or Ondrej Palat Jersey , as Falcons owner Arthur Blank more colorfully put it when speaking to Mark Leibovich at page 106 of the new book Big Game, “A lot of the reason Roger is paid a lot of money is that Roger takes a lot of f–king arrows for a lot of owners.”
So while Goodell may not wear their scorn as a badge of honor, it’s a lot easier to tolerate the fans’ slings and f–king arrows when realizing that the owners are paying him $40 million per year not just to make them a lot money, put also to provide them with a lot of cover. If nothing else, King’s poll shows that Goodell is doing that part of his job very f–king well.
And I wouldn’t be doing my own job very f–king well if I didn’t use this precise moment as a way to get you to check out Leibovich’s recent visit to the #PFTPM podcast, where among other things he offers up some off-the-cuff ideas for who could serve as Goodell’s successor.
