The Nets won’t contend this season but they are getting younger, and nabbing young talent will become even more of a challenge since Brooklyn owes the Celtics two of its next three first-round picks, and Boston has the right to swap the other. So in this transition period, Jack, 31, is one of the leaders. “No question, we’ve got to set the tone,” Jack said of the veterans. “We want other people to understand what it means to be part of Brooklyn basketball. You can’t wait until October if you want to be a special team. There’s going to have to be things you sacrifice, your personal time, to become one of those teams.

It is widely assumed the Nets will explore the trade markets for both Joe Johnson (with his expiring $24.9 million deal) and Jarrett Jack (due $12.6 million over the next two seasons but only partially guaranteed in 2016-17) to try to get away from tax territory that way, instead of waiving and stretching Williams. Neither of those ideas is as complicated as trying to trade D-Will himself, with $21 million next season and $22.3 million in 2016-17 owed to the 30-year-old, but you wouldn’t describe trading Johnson or Jack for purely financial motivations as easy, either.
