With the declaration by Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks the club is playing to win in 2018-19, here are 5 things that must go right for a playoff berth.

Despite not making the playoffs last season, the Brooklyn Nets had a positive season. There were many takeaways from emerging talent to finding their cornerstone players for their long-term plan.

The Nets did have another losing season placing 12th in the Eastern Conference, but they did show great signs of a bright future.

If last season did not show a bright future for Nets fans, this offseason should give those fans some more hope. General manager Sean Marks has done a great job this offseason.

Marks re-signed Joe Harris and signed Ed Davis. He traded away Jeremy Lin and Timofey Mozgov, giving the Nets the possibility of opening up two max contract slots for 2019. Marks traded for great veteran players such as Kenneth Faried and Jared Dudley.

The biggest takeaway from this offseason might be the potential for those two max contracts, but Marks also loaded the Brooklyn Nets up with draft picks for the next couple of years.

By Marks adding  veteran talent, frontcourt assets and draft picks, he has set up the Brooklyn Nets up for a bright future.

Now, can Brooklyn punch a ticket for the 2019 NBA Playoffs? It’s never too early to talk next year’s playoffs. These are the five things the Brooklyn Nets must do in order to make next season’s playoffs.
