The Brooklyn Nets may be candidates for the NBA championship next season because of their two superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but the 'others' will have to step up in order for this to happen.
The Nets front office has started making moves in the free agency already. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Pistons are sending Bruce Brown to Brooklyn for Dzanan Musa and a 2021 second-round pick.

This is the first move Troy Weaver makes as the Pistons GM after agreeing to a four-year contract back in June.
Brown, who was a second round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, has started 99 games in his first two seasons in the league. He is also expected to bring defensive energy to Steve Nash's lineup and will be part of the Nets' backcourt rotation.
On the other hand, Musa is only 21 years old but struggled to find minutes with the Nets the last two seasons. The 6'9 forward though has lots of potential as he's able to play inside and also shoot it from distance.
