The Brooklyn Nets have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, particularly with questions in the air about the future of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Beyond that, the big question is how will head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks rebuild the roster after a disappointing playoff exit in the 2021-22 season.

It appears that the Nets have gotten one key name with reports that T.J. Warren, now formerly of the Indiana Pacers, has agreed to a one-year deal to move to Brooklyn.

Shams Charania of The Athletic, citing sources, was among the first to report the deal.

It was also added that the deal involving the 28-year-old small forward was being discussed before Durant requested to be traded.

With Warren in tow, it will be interesting how he will fit in. He made his mark in the Orlando bubble, averaging 26.6 points and 6.3 rebounds a game for the Pacers.

In the same season, he averaged 19.8 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 40.3% from the three-point region.

However, there are questions in the air about his health. He was only able to play four games over two seasons due to stress fractures in his foot. Hence, critics are wondering if the 6-foot-8 cager will be healthy enough for the coming season.

Warren’s entry is perhaps one of the bright development for the Nets who find themselves in the middle of a stormy offseason.

Although Irving exercised his player option, there are rumors that the Nets and the Lakers are discussing a potential trade involving the 30-year-old and Russell Westbrook.

This has dragged Durant into the equation with the 33-year-old All-Star requesting a trade. Nothing has gained ground but there is still a lot that can happen with the NBA offseason underway. Among the teams allegedly interested in KD is a former team, the Golden State Warriors.
