How Will the Nets Operate as a Team?
The preseason, as a whole, will give us a good look at how the Nets operate. How does the first unit gel on offense? Can they play effective team defense? Can Greivis Vasquez, Luis Scola, Randy Foye or another veteran emerge to as a leader for the second unit?

How will Atkinson manage the games? Which rotations will he roll with as the regular season draws closer? These are all questions that need answers, and we will get a look at various facets of the Nets during the preseason.
Most notably, if the first-team offense can develop good chemistry, it would be extremely beneficial to the Nets. If Lin, Lopez, and the other starters develop a solid rapport, they will be able to reach their highest potential as a unit.
We will also get a look at some of the younger players. Isaiah Whitehead should see time, while Caris LeVert is still a ways away from seeing the floor due to a foot injury. Brooklyn has an abundance of young guards, including Yogi Ferrell, who could see time once the starters are pulled.
It’s been a long offseason, but Nets basketball is almost back. Brooklyn has a new coach, some new players, and they are in the midst of developing a new culture. On Thursday, we get our first look at the Nets as they tip off their new era.
