So far ESPN Summer Forecast has projected the Nets to go 20-62 in 2016-17 while ESPN's Bradford Doolittle has them going 16-66 based on his statistical projection model. Brooklyn has been preaching patience as an organization since Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson took over. The rebuilding Nets figure to play hard for Atkinson on a nightly basis, but defense and overall talent are certainly question marks.

Heat $50 million G Tyler Johnson told reporters of his contract figure and signing the Nets' restricted offer sheet which Miami matched: "I threw up a couple times when I heard the number go out there. I was in shock. I even lost a little bit of weight just because of the anxiety of going through the process, not knowing where I was going to be. I mean, I was almost 100 percent sure I was going to end up in Brooklyn. But it's just an incredible feeling and I'm excited to get back to work."

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.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

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."
