The Brooklyn Nets could be shaking things up in a big way over the next few days.
The team wants to climb higher than it’s current spot as the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference and the best chance of making that happen is to make trades.
There are multiple players who could be leaving Brooklyn, such as forward Dorian Finney-Smith.
Several teams have inquired about Finney-Smith, including the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Ian Begley, via NBACentral.
The Milwaukee Bucks are showing ‘strong interest’ in Dorian Finney-Smith, per @IanBegley

Along with Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie and Royce O’Neale could also be saying goodbye to the Nets by Thursday’s trade deadline.
Nic Claxton is also a name to watch, with several teams interested in landing him too.
It is clear that Brooklyn has multiple options laid before them and they could make changes in a number of ways.
Now they just need to decide which way they want to move and find the right trade partners.
For the season, Finney-Smith has put up 9.1 points and 4.8 rebounds.
This is just his second year playing for the team after being traded from the Dallas Mavericks last season in the big Kyrie Irving package that shook up both teams.
If the Bucks are asking about Finney-Smith, surely other teams are as well and there is a good chance the Nets could be receiving a lot of phone calls during the next few days.
Anchored by Mikal Bridges and Cam Thomas, the team is trying to plot it’s path forward and wants to build a strong roster around those two before the season is done.
The Nets underwent big changes last year around the trade deadline – will that happen again to them this year?
