The Brooklyn Nets have interest in making a trade though Billy King doesn't expect it to be drastic.
The Nets are projected of having $40 million in cap space and don't want to make a short-sighted move.
“We can trade now and eat all that space up, get to 30-something wins and make the playoffs in the eighth spot,” King said at the team’s New Jersey practice facility Monday afternoon. “[But] then, where’s the future now? So it’s about adding the right pieces and being patient.
“We didn’t get here overnight, and we are not going to get out of it overnight. That’s reality. There is not something where it’s, ‘OK, this is the magic wand and we are going to do this and it’s going to change overnight. We knew that going in, we knew that when we made those decisions and it didn’t work, and so now we’ve got to gradually, systematically dig yourself out of it.”
King said he’s made some “exploratory calls” about trades.
The Nets are currently 0-7.
