Nets listed as favorites to land reigning MVP if he requests a trade


In the history of the Brooklyn Nets, New Jersey Nets, New York Nets and one year as the New Jersey Americans, the franchise has never had an NBA MVP award winner.

Even with all the marquee names to don a Nets uniform in Buck Williams, Jason Kidd, Vince Carter, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, not one has earned that honor while playing with the club. 

There is one player that is a reigning MVP winner still in his prime listed as a potential Brooklyn Net if things continue to go South in his current city. 

The 2023 NBA MVP, Joel Embiid, is favored to land with the Nets as +300, according to, if he wants out of Philly.

Embiid just turned 30 and with a history of injuries along with a big lumbering 7-foot frame, the Sixers center is starting to get antsy in his chase for a championship. 

It's curious that the Nets are even on this list, nevertheless, at the top of it, because Brooklyn is several pieces away from even being considered a championship contender.

Philadelphia general manager Daryl Morey is supposed to go big game hunting this summer to pair both Embiid and Maxey with another star. 

If the Sixers failed to bring in a big star like Jimmy Butler or another piece capable of getting them past the second round, the noise surrounding Embiid leaving the City of Brotherly Love will only grow louder.
