The Brooklyn Nets should have no trouble rounding this championship roster out. Veterans who’ve reached the ring chasing stage of their careers and even a few young players could come in and help this squad. We’ve seen small additions like Joakim Noah last season, and Nic Batum this year, both come in and be useful pieces for the LA Clippers.
