Breaking down Nets’ training camp roster

Here’s an inside look at the Nets’ training camp roster:

Chris Chiozza, 26, G, 5-11, 175

Back in Brooklyn on an Exhibit 10 deal, fresh off winning an NBA title with the Warriors.

Nic Claxton, 23, C, 6-11, 215

Springy, switchable center will enter his fourth season finally on pace to start — if he can just stay healthy.

Seth Curry, 32, G, 6-2, 185

Back from offseason surgery, will join Joe Harris in giving the Nets a devastating 1-2 punch of shooters.

David Duke Jr., 22, G, 6-5, 205

He wanted a standard deal, but had to settle for a two-way.

Kevin Durant, 33, F, 6-10, 240

Back after rescinding his trade request. Can the Nets keep him happy?

Kessler Edwards, 22, F, 6-8, 215

Second-year 3-and-D wing has potential, but will need to fight for his minutes.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are surprisingly on the Nets' roster to begin the season.

Joe Harris 31, G, 6-6, 220

He recovered from a second ankle surgery, and his shooting and size on the wing will help.

Kyrie Irving, 30, G, 6-2, 195

After missing two-thirds of last season, could have a huge 2022-23 with vaccine mandates likely in the past.

Patty Mills, 34, G, 6-1, 180

The Aussie brings experience, shooting and backcourt depth.

Markieff Morris, 33, F, 6-9, 245

One of four Nets with a championship ring, he brings toughness and an enforcer rep.

Royce O’Neale, 29, F, 6-4, 226

This 3-and-D wing is their best perimeter stopper not named Ben Simmons.

Day’Ron Sharpe, 20, C, 6-11, 265

Big bruiser had limited playing time as a rookie, but has an opening as Claxton’s backup.

Ben Simmons, 26, G/F, 6-11, 240

He missed last season with back and mental-health issues, but is a special defender and passer if fit.

Edmond Sumner, 26, G, 6-4, 196

The point guard is a transition threat, though he is coming off surgery.

Cam Thomas, 20, G, 6-4, 210

He can score, but must pass and defend to steal minutes in a crowded backcourt.

Yuta Watanabe, 27, F, 6-9, 215

The Japanese forward is on a non-guaranteed deal, but can bring defense to the bench.

T.J. Warren, 29, F, 6-8, 220

A gifted three-level scorer, but missed all of last season.

Alondes Williams, 23, G, 6-5 210

Got a two-way deal, but needs a jumper and G-League seasoning.
