A proposed trade deadline move would solidify the Brooklyn Nets’ championship hopes in the Eastern Conference.

After a chaotic offseason, there were many questions surrounding the Brooklyn Nets heading into the season. However, through excellent team basketball, the team has shaken off their offseason questions and is now prepping for a deep run in the postseason.

Even though the Nets have not been winning at the pace they were when they were completely healthy and hitting their stride, they are still just a couple of games out of the second seed and still within shouting distance of the top-seeded Boston Celtics.

If the Nets can make the right move at the NBA Trade Deadline, there’s a good chance that this team could get hot at the right time. And if the Nets are hot heading into the playoffs, is anyone willing to bet against Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in a seven-game series?
