The Brooklyn Nets have depth, they got a nice combination of youth and established veterans—so what should the starting five look like?

Well, for one, things do become a little trickier for the Brooklyn Nets with Kevin Durant sidelined for a prolonged period of time with injury. They still possess a very talented roster, it’s never a bad thing to have 7-8 guys you can plug into a starting five at any given time. Kenny Atkison and company have just that entering next season.

There are questions such as the one regarding Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan and who should have a more expanded role within the rotation.

Jarrett Allen is still in his own maturation process, he’s growing into his body and figuring out the NBA game but he’s showed upside as a utility big man at the young age of 21-years-old. However, DeAndre Jordan hasn’t come off the bench to begin a game since his sophomore season—when he was 21-years-old.

Rodions Kurucs started 46 games last season and played well; should he be incorporated into the starting five on opening tipoff of the 2019/20 season?

Taurean Waller-Prince has started all but 8 games in his previous two campaigns and last year showcased his versatility position wise with a career-high in minutes at the four.

The more you dive in, the less clear it becomes who should on the floor to start off basketball games for the Brooklyn Nets. Let’s try and figure this thing out.
