With the Brooklyn Nets set to start the home stretch of the season Thursday, it seemed an appropriate opportunity to see where the former Nets have landed.
The Brooklyn Nets pick up their 2018-19 schedule on Thursday when they host the Portland Trail Blazers at Barclays Center.

With the All-Star break winding down, it seemed a good time to take a look around professional basketball and see where former members of the Nets, from both Brooklyn and New Jersey, had landed of late.
You might be surprised to learn there are currently 63 former Nets that are playing or have played professionally around the world this season, dating all the way back to the 2006-07 season in New Jersey.
Of those 63 players, 29 are playing professionally in the U.S. — 20 in the NBA and nine in the NBA G League. Five other players are currently unsigned after being active at some point this season.
Of the 30 players currently under contract overseas, eight are in China, with three each in Bahrain and Spain, two apiece in Australia, Greece, Italy and Turkey and one player each in France, Germany, Japan, Lithuania, Montenegro, Russia and South Korea.
It’s quite a busy map to mark, to be sure.
The list does not include players acquired by the Nets who were released or traded again before playing in a game, such as Greg Monroe, Darrell Arthur and Dwight Howard since the beginning of the new league year last July.
From the most recent player to leave the Nets organization to the one who left the longest ago, here are the former Nets still busy playing professional basketball.
