Brooklyn Nets middle Day’ron Sharpe is likely one of the younger gamers that the group is hoping will grow to be a part of the rotation when the playoffs come round. The second-year participant out of UNC is likely one of the Nets’ true bigs and in consequence, could also be relied upon to offer high quality minutes if Brooklyn doesn’t make a transfer for an additional massive to extend the depth within the frontcourt.
Nonetheless, in an article published by Bleacher Report on Saturday, it was prompt that the Nets mustn’t wait round for Sharpe to search out his method on the court docket. With Brooklyn trying to win a title this season earlier than addressing the attainable uncertainty coming this offseason, B/R believes that Brooklyn ought to discover a strategy to unload Sharpe inside any commerce that they pull off earlier than the deadline.
Sharpe, who’s averaging 3.5 factors and three.0 rebounds per recreation whereas capturing 52.4% from the sector, has spent a superb quantity of this season with the Nets’ G-League affiliate, the Lengthy Island Nets. In eight video games with Lengthy Island, Sharpe is averaging 14.8 factors, 12.1 rebounds, and a pair of.0 blocks per recreation whereas capturing 55.6% from the sector. B/R’s Zach Buckley stated the next about why Brooklyn ought to transfer on from Sharpe:
“The Brooklyn Nets are on the hunt for upgrades, per The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, who listed Seth Curry, Joe Harris and Patty Mills as candidates for a commerce, presumably one which sacrifices perimeter scoring for higher depth up entrance.
Irrespective of which of these gamers are moved, it could behoove Brooklyn to connect Day’Ron Sharpe to the deal. He can’t have a ton of commerce worth, however rebuilders may see the attraction of grabbing a flier on a 2021 first-round decide.
The Nets, as you’ve absolutely heard a thousand occasions this season, may stand so as to add dimension on the middle spot. Sharpe is the group’s largest participant (6’11”, 265 lbs), however that hasn’t been sufficient to get him common run. 5 of his final six few-and-far-between appearances lasted fewer than seven minutes.”
