Brooklyn Nets Roster for the 2019/20 NBA season

Before the start of the 2018-19 season, the Brooklyn Nets roster was boosted with the addition of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

After just one playoff appearance in the last four seasons, they certainly seem like strong contenders for play-offs this time around.

Their Journey from New Jersey Americans to Brooklyn Nets

Playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA) since 1976, the Nets weren’t always a team from New York. In fact, they weren’t an NBA team at all during the initial days.

The franchise was established in 1967 and played in the American Basketball Association (ABA- a rival league to NBA then) as New Jersey Americans. A year later, they moved to New York, naming themselves as New York Nets.

They were one of the four teams (San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, and Denver Nuggets being the other three) that came into the NBA when the ABA merge happened in 1976.

A year later, the team returned to New Jersey and played as the New Jersey Nets from 1977 to 2012. During this time, the Nets won two consecutive Eastern Conference championships (in the 2001–02 and 2002–03 seasons) but failed to win a league title.

They became the Brooklyn Nets in the summer of 2012 when they moved to play at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn. Their best finish since then has been a Conference semi-final appearance in the 2013-14 season.
