The Brooklyn Nets have yet to land a NBA Championship but will be hoping to change that fact in the upcoming season. You must go back to 2006 to find the last time the Nets won a Divisional title and 2003 for their most recent Conference title. Do they have what it takes to reach the NBA Finals in the upcoming campaign or is that out of the question? Check out the futures lines with BetOnline to find out!
The Nets’ 2019/20 NBA season came to an end courtesy of the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs. With the season now behind them, the Nets can concentrate on looking forward to the 2020/21 campaign and will be hoping for a season which sees the return of star duo, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Durant missed the whole of the 2019/20 season due to an Achilles injury picked up in the 2019 NBA Finals. Irving was looking forward to competing in his first season for the Nets but managed only 10 games due to a shoulder injury.
Having finished in 7th place in the Eastern Conference last season, is it too much to expect a rise to the top of the table for the Nets?
The fact Durant and Irving can easily combine to provide 60 points in any given game is a huge boost to the chances of the Nets in the upcoming season. Coming back from a long term injury is never easy and it may take a while for both players to reach their peak level of performance. However, once they are back to their best, Durant and Irving have the ability to drag the Nets up the Eastern Conference and into contention for the NBA Finals.

If you are considering a wager on the Brooklyn Nets for next season, the introduction of Jacque Vaughn could make a big difference. Having been promoted from his position as assistant coach last season, Vaughn did an excellent job and general manager Sean Marks may have been tempted to hold off on the search for a new head coach. Jason Kidd and Ty Lue were two of the big names being linked with the job but Steve Nash was the man appointed. However, Vaughn is likely to remain with the Nets in some capacity, especially as this is the first coaching job for Nash..
The emergence of Caris LeVert during the seeding games is another plus point for the Brooklyn Nets ahead of the new campaign. He managed 25 points per game during the seeding phase and it will be interesting to follow his progress throughout the 2020/21 season.
