The Brooklyn Nets need these rookies to contribute…immediately

The Brooklyn Nets bucked the trend of previous years by taking a player in the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft. Shockingly, they ended up making two picks in the first round — Cam Thomas and Day’Ron Sharpe.

Brooklyn addressed two key areas of need with these picks. For Thomas, he can provide some bench scoring to help alleviate the pressure on the big three. As for Sharpe, he is a physical big man who can defend pick-and-roll and crash the glass.

The last time we saw the Nets on the court, they were watching the Milwaukee Bucks celebrate a Game 7 overtime win.
