The Brooklyn Nets aren't expected to be very good next season as they try to rebuild their team back into a contender, and ESPN thinks they're a long way off.
According to their NBA insiders, the Nets will finish with a 30-52 record, the fifth worst mark in the Eastern Conference. Here's ESPN's Bradford Doolite with his explanation:
"I've heard plenty from Brooklyn fans already who think I'm way off in my assessment of the Nets as putrid. Unfortunately for them, the RPM-based projections are even more pessimistic than I am. The summer forecast is for 30 wins and for the Nets to get to that total, they'd have to outperform their analytical projections more than any team in the league. The Nets come in just above Philly's poor offensive forecast, ranking 29th in the league."
