NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets finally unveiled their new players, Jahlil Okafor and Nik Stauskas, Friday night in Toronto.
The only problem was their debuts occurred in Brooklyn's worst showing of the season.
On Sunday, the Nets hope Stauskas and Okafor can contribute to a better performance and a win over the Indiana Pacers.
