The Brooklyn Nets were directly under the spotlight over the last few seasons as they had players like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden on the roster.
The Nets may no longer be home to these future Hall of Famers, but the organization is still trying its best to stay in contention.
One key player for the Brooklyn Nets in the 2023-24 season will be Ben Simmons.
Speaking of Simmons, Nets head coach Jacque Vaughn recently shared his plans for Ben’s role on the team via Ian Begley on Twitter.
Jacque Vaughn asked if Ben Simmons & Spencer Dinwiddie are competing for time at PG position or if Nets see Dinwiddie as playing off ball. Vaughn says Dinwiddie & Simmons will share floor at times & there will be times when Dinwiddie & Dennis Smith Jr will be sole ball handlers

Begley revealed Vaughn was asked if Simmons would compete for the position of the primary point guard on the roster with Spencer Dinwiddie.
Vaughn revealed that the two players will certainly share the floor occasionally.
Moreover, the Nets head coach shared his plans to use Dinwiddie and Dennis Smith Jr. as the sole ball handlers of the team as well.
It seems like Vaughn is trying to ensure that the Nets have multiple floor generals throughout the season.
Considering Simmons’ injury troubles over the last couple of seasons, the Nets coach cannot be blamed for being cautious.
Simmons was featured in just 42 games in the 2022-23 season.
During those games, Simmons averaged just 6.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game for the Nets.
Can Simmons improve his game for the 2023-24 season or are fans in for another terrible season from the former NBA All-Star?
Well, the only way to find out is to wait for the new NBA season to kick off in October.NEXT: Jacque Vaughn Makes An Honest Admission About Ben Simmons
