B+ trading rating?All eyes on Ben Simmons, but these two are a surprise

The Nets, who had lost 11 in a row, have won two in a row.Clearly, the Nets are getting back on track after the Harden trade for Ben Simmons.Remember when Kevin Pelton gave the Nets a B-plus rating on the trade, writing at length about how Simmons would affect the team, while Seth Curry was seen as a “perimeter shooter” to fill Joe Harris’s gap, and Draymond in the post…Not a word.But I have to say, Seth Curry and Draymond, those two games were awesome!Curry had 23 points, seven rebounds and five assists on 10-of-18 shooting and was +14 in his Sacramento debut.Drummond had 11 points and nine rebounds in 24 minutes and was a +23.Against the Knicks, Curry had 20 points and six assists on 6-of-9 3-pointers and was +27.Drummond had 11 points and 19 rebounds in 22 minutes, and the Nets pulled off a 28-point comeback.Curry will make $8.18 million this season, while Drummond will make $2.4 million.In the game against the Kings, curry and Drummond had a lot of pick-and-rolls, and sabonis couldn’t get out of the game, so the Nets were super efficient in scoring, whether it was Seth Curry shooting straight from the middle or trang hitting the basket with an assist.At the moment, the Nets’ roster is not complete, durant, Irving, Simmons, Joe Harris, Clarkston and others can not play, so it is in this situation, curry and Zhuang god more playing time.If the two can do well in this period, Nash can certainly consider going with a starting lineup of Irving, Steph, Simmons, Durant and Zhuang.Duou is responsible for the siege, Curry as a shooter, Zhuang God, Xi Di is responsible for an inside and outside defense…It seems really reasonable.Obviously, the Nets still have a chance to win the NBA championship after releasing Harden, but it all depends on whether Irving can go from part-time to full-time.
