Thank You Nets Fans
Dear Nets Fans,
Thank you for being part of our journey throughout the 2018-19 NBA season. We're proud of the steps forward we've taken and we appreciate your support along the way.
With our 42 wins, we improved our win total by 14 over the 2017-18 season and made the NBA Playoffs for the first time since 2015 as the Eastern Conference’s No. 6 seed. But that doesn’t mean we’re satisfied; we still have work to do.
With head coach Kenny Atkinson and our front office, coaching, and performance staffs, we've spent the last three years building a culture of commitment, collaboration, support, teamwork, and accountability to get the best out of our players and ourselves.
D'Angelo Russell became our first All-Star since 2014, and Joe Harris won the 3-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend. Rookie Rodions Kurucs and second-year center Jarrett Allen joined D'Angelo and Joe in Charlotte to face off against each other in the Rising Stars game. A year after being a finalist for the NBA's Most Improved Player Award, Spencer Dinwiddie is in the conversation for Sixth Man of the Year.
The Long Island Nets reached the NBA G League Finals for the first time after winning the Eastern Conference with major contributions from rookie Dzanan Musa and two-way players Theo Pinson and Alan Williams. It was a great experience for all three players to be part of our program in Brooklyn while developing on the court with Long Island as well.
We have work to do in the offseason, and we've already gotten started. The Nets have two first-round picks in this June's NBA Draft, plus the first pick of the second round. We'll be active and aggressive in upgrading our roster with a significant amount of cap space to work with.
We're looking forward to getting back on the court next fall and seeing you again at Barclays Center.
