The Brooklyn Nets experienced a roster overhaul heading into the 2017-2018 season. With only a few core players left to build around, general manager Sean Marks made moves to improve the roster.

The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of new faces on the roster this season. Many of these players have played extended minutes this season. Marks has continued to fiddle around with the roster to try and find the players who are the best fit for head coach Kenny Atkinson’s system.

The results have been mostly positive, as Marks has been able to offload some aging or ineffective talent. He has been able to get high ceiling assets for expiring or inflated contracts. Regardless of the move, Marks has seemed to have gotten the better end of the deal in most cases.

Impact players from last season that the Nets have moved on from include; Brook Lopez, Trevor Booker, Justin Hamilton, Randy Foye and Bojan Bogdanovic. Each of these players had major roles on last year’s team, but are either in new homes or out of the league this season.

What Marks has replaced them with is a group of mostly younger and grittier players with high ceilings and untapped potential. There are always a few exceptions with everything. Marks knew that to get some of the players he wanted, the Nets would have to take back some inflated contracts.

Overall, the additions have seemed to help the Nets more than they have hurt them. Marks has added eight new players to the roster this season. Here we will rank those additions from the worst to best.
