Smith has no coaching or front office experience, but this isn't his first interview for a head-coaching job -- he interviewed with the Rockets back in 2016. He joins a long list of candidates that includes Mark Jackson, Jerry Stackhouse, David Fizdale, Mike Woodson and David Blatt.

Jerry Stackhouse will interview for the head coaching positions in Orlando and Charlotte.

Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Nets GM Sean Marks said he would love to re-sign Joe Harris this summer.

"I thought Joe made it pretty clear ... he'd love to be back here," Marks said. "Definitely he's a guy we see in a Nets uniform." The Nets will have the cap space to get a deal done and Harris has probably earned himself a multi-year contract. He averaged career-highs in points (10.8), rebounds (3.3), assists (1.6) and 3-pointers (1.9), shooting 49.1% from the field and 41.9% from beyond the arc.

D'Angelo Russell said that he wants to become a leader for the Nets this offseason.

"I want to be that point guard or better yet, lead guard when I have the ball in my hands," he said. "I want to develop that trust with the coaches and the players around met that I’m going to make the right play when the ball is in my hands, especially at the end of games. I want to show that I can finish it out." Russell was averaging 21 points and six assists before missing 33 games with a non-contact knee injury, but his play was volatile after he returned to action. Still only 22, Russell is loaded with talent but needs to work on his defense, shot selection and ball security this offseason.

Joe Harris - G/F - Nets

Unrestricted free agent Joe Harris said he would like to stay with the Nets next year.

"I think everybody is kind of on the same line [of thinking] right here," Harris said about himself, his agent, GM Sean Marks and coach Kenny Atkinson. Harris wasn't in the rotation to start the year, but the injuries to Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell got him some minutes. He had a mini-breakout year and he'll likely be looking at a multi-year, guaranteed deal.
Apr 12 - 2:34 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he's impressed with how quickly Jeremy Lin (knee) is progressing.

"We’ve just got to be really super, super-cautious," Atkinson said. "We don’t want to rush this in April, May. But I was blown away at how well he was moving, and the stuff he did yesterday." Lin hasn't had any setbacks and will be 100 percent for training camp. He exercised his $12.5 million player option for 2018-19, but his path to fantasy value will be complicated because of D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie.
Apr 12 - 10:44 AM

Jarrett Allen said he's "definitely" going to "add a lot of muscle" this offseason.

"I want to add strength, shooting, and offensive game stuff," he said. "[Defensively], I think I’ve done pretty well, and I know I’ll get even better with time, but I need to work on offensive skills, dribbling, shooting, and post work." Allen averaged 10.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.7 blocks in 23.8 minutes when he moved into the starting lineup, shooting 62.1% from the field and 80.5% from the line. Still only 19, he's going to generate a lot of hype this summer.
Apr 12 - 10:29 AM

Caris LeVert (foot) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, posting 11 points, six assists, three steals, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

The Nets used their 25th different starting lineup of the season tonight, and LeVert wound up with his first start since mid-December. It wasn't his best shooting night at 4-of-13 from the field, but he made both of his free throws and looked fine despite his recent injury. He'll be a popular target late in drafts, especially if don't bring back Joe Harris in free agency.
Apr 11 - 10:45 PM

Jahlil Okafor (ankle) picked up another DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Okafor's health hasn't been the reason for his inactivity, as Brooklyn simply hasn't opted to play him much since acquiring him from Philly. It's anyone's guess how much attention he'll draw as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Apr 11 - 10:45 PM

Jarrett Allen finished his rookie season with 10 points, seven rebounds and one block on Wednesday, making 4-of-5 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs in just 19 minutes.

The Nets improved their record by eight wins this season, which is the second-best mark behind Philly, and Allen's impressive play was a big reason for the modest success. He finishes with at least one block in 14 consecutive games, which is the third-longest streak by a Nets rookie since 1983-84, trailing only P.J. Brown and Brook Lopez. With the ability to rack up big-man stats without hurting your percentages, Allen has the makings of a tremendous roto center.
Apr 11 - 10:44 PM

Nik Stauskas scored 18 points with four rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 35 minutes of action on Wednesday.

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore right knee), Joe Harris (ankle) and DeMarre Carroll (hip) were all out for Brooklyn tonight, and they went particularly deep into the rotation -- even Milton Doyle played 25 minutes. It's unlikely the Nets will make Stauskas a $5.1 million qualifying offer this summer, so he's likely to hit the open market.
Apr 11 - 10:43 PM

D'Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert, Allen Crabbe, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Jarrett Allen will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

it's the 25th different starting lineup with Spencer Dinwiddie out to join DeMarre Carroll and Joe Harris on the sidelines. The Nets have won three in a row and they'll have a good chance to win again vs. the Celtics backups. The game should be full of fantasy goodness.
Apr 11 - 7:44 PM

Caris LeVert (foot) will be available to play for Wednesday's game in Boston.

LeVert will be returning from a one-game absence, and he should see plenty of minutes tonight with Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) and Joe Harris (ankle) unavailable. He's on the radar as a potential streamer or DFS punt play with not much depth behind him.
Apr 11 - 11:53 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore right knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.

He'll join DeMarre Carroll (hip) and Joe Harris (ankle) on the sidelines tonight, which should result in more minutes for guys like Caris LeVert and Nik Stauskas, and LeVert might end up starting tonight. Stauskas might be someone to think about as a low-end, 3-point streamer, but it's LeVert who you'd want to go after as a DFS punt play.
Apr 11 - 11:51 AM

Caris LeVert (foot) is probable to play Wednesday against the Celtics.

It looks like LeVert will return from a one-game absence to suit up for Brooklyn's regular-season finale, which could mess with Spencer Dinwiddie and Nik Stauska's minutes. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
