2022 Trade Deadline: The Brooklyn Nets Still Working To Make More Moves After James Harden Deal

2022 Trade Deadline: The Brooklyn Nets Still Working To Make More Moves After James Harden Deal

After weeks of speculation, the Brooklyn Nets finally pulled the trigger on the James Harden trade, swapping the unhappy shooting guard for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond.

But even after making such a big splash, the Nets may not be done making moves.

In a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is still looking to be aggressive on the trade market.

With less than an hour to go until the deadline, Brooklyn doesn't have much time left to tweak the roster, but they still have some pieces they could trade, including Nic Claxton and the two first-round picks they got from Philadelphia.

Already, they have been linked to Myles Turner and likely already have other names in mind.

Losers of 6 straight, the 8th seeded Nets clearly need some help in the wake of what has been a messy campaign so far. The departure of Harden brings some stability and Simmons will help strengthen the defense around Durant and Kyrie. Who knows what else GM Sean Marks may have lined up.

So while the "big three" era ended as a major disappointment, the best may be yet to come for Brooklyn.
