The Nets have 15 players under contract but that doesn't mean GM Sean Marks is done with the roster. Marks said the team will continue to listen and see what else is out there. Marks is glad despite missing out on his restricted free agent targets that the Nets have plenty of cap space and flexibly moving forward.

Brooklyn GM Sean Marks on what will define success for the rebuilding Nets next season: "I think it's going to be progress throughout the season. We've said enough about bringing in competitive guys. I think Kenny Atkinson is going to be able to bring the best out of those guys, and all these guys have come here to win, that's the bottom line. They haven't come here to say we're going to win 10 games or 15 games or 20 games. They want to win and they want to compete hard every night, so that's what we're going to be seeing from the vets and they'll be taking the younger guys with them."

Jeremy Lin on why he's betting on the Nets, Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson:

Jeremy Lin on how he can play better when "empowered" as a starter: "I have played a lot of different roles, I have sacrificed for a lot of teams that I have been on in the past, I have taken on smaller roles to try to help the team succeed. Now I have that chance to take a much bigger role and be a much bigger part. It is no surprise to anybody if you look at the numbers my whole career, when I have the ball in my hands, when I play longer minutes, when I am more comfortable, when I am empowered, I play better. And I am hoping I can take that next step as a player and hoping that I can help this team grow. I want to make my teammates better and make the game easier for everybody. I guess that is what will define me as a player."

Jeremy Lin on embracing his growing role as an Asian American role model more now: "When it first started... it became a burden because I didn't know what I had gotten myself into. I didn't know how big things had become... Three years removed (from Linsanity), every year I embrace it more, I am more appreciative, I love it more... I am in a much, much different place mentally as a person than I was when I was with the Knicks. So when you talk about that platform, I want to embrace it. (And) I am not just saying Asians. If you look at what is going on in the world and a lot of the violence that is going on in terms of the justice system and all these different things, that is real life. That is so much bigger than basketball. I have a voice because of basketball, to be able to talk and influence and do things that are related to things that are affecting people's lives. That is a very unique situation."

Kenny Atkinson on Jeremy Lin: "It was a special time. I think looking back we were all shocked (with Linsanity during Knicks tenure)... I think his leadership (will be key), his work ethic, his intelligence and competitiveness, I think he will also lead with his voice."
