Dzanan Musa: 2019-20 Brooklyn Nets Player Recaps

Second-year swingman appeared in 40 games for Nets

After playing in just nine games as a rookie, 21-year-old Dzanan Musa made 40 appearances in year two with the Brooklyn Nets.

Injuries opened an opportunity for the 6-foot-9 swingman early in the season, and he stepped into the rotation to average 17.7 minutes over 16 games in November and December as the Nets kept their season afloat by playing well above .500 after losing Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert for two months each.

Musa played primarily for Long Island in the G League in the final month before the NBA season was suspended in March, before posting three double-figure scoring games in eight appearances through the seeding round and playoffs on the NBA Campus in Orlando.
