The Brooklyn Nets are still making moves in this offseason.
Well, they might still be making moves.
Both of them reportedly want to be traded but the Nets aren’t in a hurry to make a deal unless it’s one that’s very appealing to the future of the team.
Current Eastern Conference NBA over/under wins per @betonline_ag:
BKN Off the board
NYK Off the board

All of this drama is creating havoc on the betting market too.
The current over/under win predictions for the upcoming season have been released for both the Eastern and Western Conferences.
While many of the teams have their numbers released, the Nets are currently “off the board” because bettors aren’t going to make a prediction about them until the Durant-Irving situation is figured out.
But when will that actually happen?
Nets In The Unknown
If Durant and Iriving remain with the Nets, you can bet the over/under marker for the team will be pretty darn high.
Will it be as high as Miami’s 50 or Boston’s 53.5?
That’s unlikely but the Nets will have a pretty good chance of doing very well if these two players stick around.
It’s not just the Nets who are “off the board” – the New York Knicks also don’t have an over/under as that team is attempting to land a big trade with Donovan Mitchell from the Utah Jazz.
Meanwhile, there is ambiguity in the Western Conference too: the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers are off the board since they could be part of these giant trade deals.
The upcoming season is starting to take form but there are still many questions that remain.
