The Brooklyn Nets have not held onto a first-round draft pick since 2018. According to a report from Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, the Nets are trying to move up in the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft.
“Houston (Nos. 23, 24) and New York (Nos. 19, 21) have continued their efforts searching to jump into the teens, while Brooklyn also appears active in talks to move up from No. 27, with the Nets offering sharpshooting guard Landry Shamet, sources said,” Fischer wrote.
This would be a changeup from what Brooklyn’s strategy has been in recent years.
