2. Myles Turner

One of the Brooklyn Nets' main weaknesses is size, specifically, physical big men who do not get pushed around in the paint. Out of players who play frequently, Nic Claxton is the second-worst Net in +/- at -4.

Part of the reason is he is not as strong as some as the more dominant big man in the league such as Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, and others. This hurts the Nets in the rebounding department as well as interior defense.

Enter Myles Turner to solve those problems. He is averaging 17.1 points per game, 7.6 rebounds, and a noteworthy 2.2 blocks per game. Turner can also provide offensive scoring and help aid Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, and Cam Thomas as they would have another player around the 20 point per game mark.

Turner would be able to hold his ground with some of the more muscular big man in the league and not get pushed around as easily as Claxton would. Turner and Day'Ron Sharpe would be a formidable duo and Turner can help mentor Sharpe and grow as a player.
