Brooklyn Nets center Day’ron Sharpe is one of the young players that the team is hoping will become part of the rotation when the playoffs come around. The second-year player out of UNC is one of the Nets’ true bigs and as a result, may be relied upon to give quality minutes if Brooklyn does not make a move for another big to increase the depth in the frontcourt.

However, in an article published by Bleacher Report on Saturday, it was suggested that the Nets should not wait around for Sharpe to find his way on the court. With Brooklyn looking to win a title this season before addressing the possible uncertainty coming this offseason, B/R believes that Brooklyn should find a way to unload Sharpe within any trade that they pull off before the deadline.

Sharpe, who is averaging 3.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game while shooting 52.4% from the field, has spent a good amount of this season with the Nets’ G-League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. In eight games with Long Island, Sharpe is averaging 14.8 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game while shooting 55.6% from the field. B/R’s Zach Buckley said the following about why Brooklyn should move on from Sharpe:

“The Brooklyn Nets are on the hunt for upgrades, per The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, who listed Seth Curry, Joe Harris and Patty Mills as candidates for a trade, presumably one that sacrifices perimeter scoring for better depth up front.

No matter which of those players are moved, it would behoove Brooklyn to attach Day’Ron Sharpe to the deal. He can’t have a ton of trade value, but rebuilders might see the appeal of grabbing a flier on a 2021 first-round pick.

The Nets, as you’ve surely heard a thousand times this season, could stand to add size at the center spot. Sharpe is the team’s biggest player (6’11”, 265 lbs), but that hasn’t been enough to get him regular run. Five of his last six few-and-far-between appearances lasted fewer than seven minutes.”
