The Brooklyn Nets (hereinafter referred to as Brooklyn) have expressed their intention to purchase Naz Reed from the Minnesota Timberwolves (hereinafter referred to as Minnesota).
Reporter Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer reported on the afternoon of the 24th (Korean time) that Brooklyn had made an inquiry about Reed.
Reed is 6’9″, 264 pounds (206 cm, 119 kg) and plays in the center position. He averaged 10.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 17.6 minutes this season. In addition, he boasts a much more stable shooting feel than Claxton, with a career 3-point shooting success rate of 34% (0.9 successful) and a career free throw success rate of 71.8% (2 attempts).
It’s easy to see why Brooklyn wants Reed. Brooklyn is recording 40.6 team rebounds regardless of Claxton’s defense. This ranks 29th in the league and ranks as the worst rebounding team behind the Dallas Mavericks. 먹튀검증
Currently, Ben Simmons is the only player in the center position among Brooklyn’s main rotation members, except for Claxton. Accordingly, Brooklyn went public in their quest to find a big man to serve as backup to Nicholas Claxton.
Things are good for Brooklyn, Minnesota said on the 16th that it would not sign an extension with Reed. Therefore, it is predicted that his price will not be expensive. The bad news for Brooklyn, on the other hand, is that the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets want Reed, so they have contenders.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn finished 4th in the Eastern Conference with 29-17 (0.630). However, Brooklyn is one game behind second-place Philadelphia and only one game behind fifth-place Cleveland Cavaliers.
As a result, Brooklyn is expected to reinforce Claxton’s backup position unconditionally in order to occupy the top seed in the fierce ranking competition.
