Brooklyn Nets Rumors
Stefan Bondy: Beyond Durant factor, Nets need a big body to bang with the likes of Joel Embiid. They were crushed by Philly’s physicality in the playoffs. Sean Marks today: “I think adding size is certainly something we’ll look at as the summer transpires, but you never know what happens.”
Regarding your future in free agency, what’s going through your mind as we’re nearing it? DeMarre Carroll: I think the biggest thing for me is to try and enjoy it. This might be one of my last big free agency deals that I get, so I’ve got to try and enjoy and let my wife enjoy it because she didn’t get to enjoy the last one. I think she’ll probably get to pick this one, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens. We’re just excited to go into free agency.
What are you looking for in free agency? DeMarre Carroll: At the end of the day, I’m just looking for stability and just to make sure my family is happy. Like I said before, this is going to be my last kind of big deal, so I’ve got to make sure I set myself up financially on this deal. We’ll see what happens. How many more years do you want to play in the league? DeMarre Carroll: I really haven’t thought about it. At the end of the day, you let your body do a lot of the talking. This performance staff in Brooklyn really helped me gain more years and got a lot more out of my body and I know the things to do. I’m just excited to go into free agency. I think I’ve got a good relationship with this performance team here in Brooklyn. They really helped me put more years on my career, so I’m happy about it.
Michael Scotto: D’Angelo Russell held a camp in NJ this weekend. No FA talk, but some notes: Russell on Brooklyn: It’s fun. This is a city that loves 🏀. Reporter: Can you see yourself doing this camp every year? DLo: For sure. Karl Towns Sr. talked to him. One camper: “Stay with Brooklyn.” pic.twitter.com/ifBjWGmPpj
Do you think one day we’re going to see a female coach or a GM? DeMarre Carroll: For sure. A female coach or a GM for sure. Soon. And as you should. You see a lot of male coaches go coach in the WNBA, so why can’t a female coach in the NBA? We’ll see. Our league is evolving. We’re becoming a global league and I think it’ll happen sooner than later.
Brian Lewis: Asked if he can see doing this camp every year, D’Angelo Russell said “Definitely.” Talking about Brooklyn, and New York, @dloading added “I love this city.” #Nets pic.twitter.com/MuRpQItcQU
