Deron Williams, PG (2012-2015)

One of the greatest Brooklyn Nets of all time is perhaps one of the best players ever in terms of the overall Nets franchise. In his 2012-13 season, Deron Williams was at his peak in a Brooklyn uniform. He made 78 starts he averaged 18.9 points and 7.7 assists per game while shooting 37.8 percent from behind the arc. He was always a great shooter for Brooklyn, nailing .366 and .367, respectively, from deep in his next two seasons.

Williams wasn’t as good in those next two years, but still scored 13.6 points per game, and dished out 6.4 assists per game. He never had an All-Star year while in Brooklyn but was still one of the best point guards in the league for much of his time here.

Joe Johnson, SG (2012-2016)

Williams was a great shooter, but Joe Johnson was deadly. He stuck a dagger in the heart of many an opponent with his ability to nail the three-ball. Johnson averaged 37.8 percent from behind the arc in his three-and-a-half seasons with the Brooklyn Nets.

He shot over 40 percent from downtown in the 2013-14 season and earned a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

Joe Cool averaged 14.7 points per game and was one of the better two-guards in basketball. He also proved to be durable in Brooklyn. Johnson played and started in 288 games wearing a Nets uniform. That was that 95 percent of all games the Nets played during his tenure.
