4. Dorian Finney-Smith

Finney-Smith also figures to be on the block ahead of the deadline. Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson are the team’s preferred wing options. Doe-Doe continues to improve and is an outstanding worker, but the Nets may be looking for a different piece to round out their roster.

He is reportedly drawing interest from several teams already. Every contender is searching for wing depth. Finney-Smith is willing to spot-up and play off the ball. He can defend multiple positions and is shooting over 42.6 percent from 3-point range this season.

Even with the Nets wing depth, Doe-Doe is averaging 9.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 29.1 minutes per game. He is fifth on the team in minutes and has started 20 of his 31 games played. The 6’7 forward can help any contender and would likely net Brooklyn one first-round pick plus if the Nets decide to move him.

Sean Marks would be wise to maximize his assets. If he believes Dorian Finney-Smith is at the peak of his trade value, it is time to move him. Finney-Smith is under contract for $14.9 million next season and has a player option in 2025. Expect him to appear in the rumors heading into the deadline, and to be moved if the Brooklyn Nets get blown away by an offer.
