The Brooklyn Nets are out of the playoff picture, but they remain optimistic about their chances to improve this summer. As a whole host of stars his the free agent market, the Nets have surfaced as a very desirable location for many names looking to change scenes.

If they happen to strike out on the big names, however, they may not necessarily come out empty handed.

“Sources have told The Post if the Nets can’t land Kevin Durant they would love to have [Tobias] Harris on their side next season. Though 76ers owner Josh Harris has stated he hopes to keep him, the 26-year-old will have a plethora of teams lined up for his services.”

Tobias Harris is not the sexiest name available, but the Nets could do worse. The 26-year-old star averaged 20 points per game this season. He can score inside and out and brings intensity on the defensive end as well.

Alongside D'Angelo Russell, the Nets could move a leg up in the Eastern Conference hierarchy.

Then again, the future of D'Lo is still up in the air as well. For a team with as much progress as they have made, do not expect the Nets to just roll over and stand PAT this summer. They will be looking to make some moves.
