In the Brooklyn Nets' process of rebuilding, it appears no player is off the table. That includes one of the team's most talented young players.
The Nets acquired Hollis-Jefferson with the draft pick that they received in the Mason Plumlee trade. After an ankle injury cut his rookie season short, the 22-year-old forward has already surpassed his total games played during 2016-17.
While Hollis-Jefferson has displayed potential as a defensive stopper, his offensive game hasn't shown any progress this season. In fact, he has taken a step back in shooting. he has shot only 38 percent from the field, down from 46 percent.
But it's Hollis-Jefferson's defensive ability that could have teams interested around the trade deadline as the Nets look to collect assets. A Hollis-Jefferson trade could open additional playing time for other young players such as Caris LeVert, who has impressed in limited time this season.
Hollis-Jefferson is in the second year of his rookie contract and will remain under team control for two more seasons.
