Jared Dudley (Power Forward)
Jared Dudley was acquired by Brooklyn in a Friday trade. When he was acquired by Brooklyn, it was a surprise, but he fills the stretch 4 hole Brooklyn had.

The veteran power forward also brings leadership and mentoring to the young Nets frontcourt. Dudley is known to be a likable teammate and can play a big role helping develop Brooklyn’s young frontcourt players.
Dudley is expected to come off the bench for Brooklyn. He is a great asset to have coming off the bench for Brooklyn that can bring immediate scoring and solid defending.
