Nets GM Sean Marks preaches ‘level of impatience’

0 Comment


Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks isn’t satisfied with an eight-win increase over the 2016-17 season and says it’s time to expect more.

“It’s important that we all have a level of impatience,” Marks told reporters Monday. “Again that’s for sure with [owners] Mikhail [Prokhorov] and Joe [Tsai],nfl football jerseys for sale  but that’s also with [coach] Kenny [Atkinson] and myself.

“We should not be satisfied nor settled with a jump in wins. It’s got to be ‘Next year our target is X and that’s how we need to do to get there.’ A lot of that will be predetermined by roster moves this summer.”195

The Nets finished this season with a 28-54 record, their third consecutive 50-loss season after three straight playoff appearances. However, the season did end on an up note after the team won seven of its last 13 games after losing 19 of 22.

“I don’t think we can argue with what Kenny and the staff have done in terms of developing talent,” Marks said. “We’re all sitting here saying ‘Can we do better?’ Sure, and that starts with me. Kenny would say the same thing. Can we improve over the course of the next offseason and years to come? [Yes] 100 percent.”

On the court, Jeremy Lin didn’t even make it through one full game this season. He has played in just 37 games over two seasons as he enters the final year of his three-year, $36 million deal, but Marks isn’t counting out the 29-year-old guard.

“He’s proven people wrong his entire career, so that’s something when we first brought Jeremy on board intrigued us about him,” Marks said. “There’s no market too big for him, nfl football jerseys china there’s no moment. I’d say I wouldn’t bet against Jeremy. The way he’s attacked his rehab over the last six to eight months is really impressive. He’s come back with a new lease on life, which is great. We’re intrigued.”
