With Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, the Brooklyn Nets have everything they need to win a Championship this season. Anything less, in fact, will be equated with failure.

Still, in spite of their star-studded roster, the Nets are still looking for ways to improve, especially in regards to their presence in the paint.

Their plans for this season remain unconfirmed, but one NBA scout wouldn't be surprised if Brooklyn gets their hands on star big man Andre Drummond sometime in the near future.

“They’re really small. (Jordan) doesn’t play a lot (20.3 minutes per game), and when he’s out (they’re small),” the scout said.

"So defensive rebounding is a concern. James can guard bigger guys. He has proven that. He’s been one of the best post defenders statistically the last four or five years. But still, I think it really hurts them overall. Especially rebounding. I think they’re going to try to get a big, either on a buyout or a trade. I would not be surprised to see Drummond there, if he would take a buyout.”

The 27-year-old center is a traditional style player who excels under the rim -- blocking shots, grabbing rebounds, and scoring easy buckets in the paint.

The Nets, a team that needs a boost in all of those areas, have a lot to gain by adding him, and the roster would probably be considered the best in league history.

But it remains to be seen how the Drummon situation will play out, and where he will go if he does move on. Regardless, it will be interesting to see how the situation ends...
