The Nets only have a dozen healthy players they can count on as they prepare to head to Orlando, and just one legitimate big man after their frontcourt got decimated by injuries and coronavirus.
But it sounds like they are on the verge of adding some reinforcements, and they most likely will be in the paint.
“Overall, we have to have as many bodies as possible going into Orlando,” interim coach Jacque Vaughn said in a Saturday Zoom call. “We have eight games in 14 days, so the demand on our athletes, the more available bodies we have the better off we’ll be for sure.”
Center DeAndre Jordan tested positive for COVID-19 and ruled himself out of the restart, and power forward Wilson Chandler opted out over similar concerns. Both were starting when the season got shut down in March. (NYPost)
