And now for the team’s preview:

All expected players as of July 5th

Players expected to compete: Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, Isaiah Whitehead, Kamari Murphy, Milton Doyle, Tahjere McCall, Rodney Pryor, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Archie Goodwin, Prince Ibeh, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jake Wiley, Jeremy Senglin, Nathan Boothe, J.J. Moore, and Vincent Poirier.

Brooklyn’s squad will feature some exciting young talent on the NBA roster, like Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, Isaiah Whitehead, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and vet Spencer Dinwiddie. Former first round pick Archie Goodwin has found a good organization to make a comeback attempt with, as Brooklyn will be willing to take risks.

Jeremy Senglin (Weber State) and Rodney Pryor (Georgetown) put together successful college careers and will try to translate their success to the NBA. French prospect Vincent Poirier has played in top international leagues. Nathan Boothe shot 48 percent from three in Italy’s top pro league.

Prince Ibeh was a top UDFA last year for the Bucks, and he has some potential as a rim protector.

Long Island Nets forward J.J. Moore will join the Brooklyn squad. Moore averaged 14.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game this past season.

Player to Watch: Jake Wiley

Wiley, who only played one year of D1 basketball, will be given an opportunity to play in the NBA. He recently signed a two-way contract with the Nets.

Wiley was a track star and is incredibly athletic. He averaged 20.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per game. Despite being just 6’7″, he is an elite shot blocker.

Wiley could be a very fun prospect to watch this summer, and everyone should be watching him.
