It's agreed: Next step in Nets' process is a top free agent

One after another, Nets players reflecting on their 4-1 first-round series playoff loss to the talent-laden 76ers said in their exit interviews on Wednesday that, to take another step toward championship contention, it’s important to add a bona fide All-Star level free agent.

Most speculation about Durant centers on him possibly joining the Knicks, who have cap space to add two maximum-salary free agents.

But the Nets are projected to have $30 million to spend on one elite free agent, and they might have an inroad via emerging star Caris LeVert, who has trained with Durant.

The obvious question for LeVert was whether he will make a sales pitch to Durant for the Nets.

The shoe might be on the other foot if Durant has questions about Brooklyn’s place in the New York market.
