The 2013–14 Brooklyn Nets season was the franchise's 47th season, its 38th in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and its 2nd season playing in the New York City borough of Brooklyn.

After making the playoffs for the first time in six years during the 2012–13 season, the Nets had a busy offseason which featured the hiring of Jason Kidd (who played for the then-New Jersey Nets from 200108) as the head coach.[1] The Nets also traded Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, and three future draft picks to the Celtics for all-stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, along with Jason Terry.[2] These transactions led to the Nets having the largest payroll in the NBA, and high expectations heading into the season.

Conference Semifinals[edit]

The Nets' season would end in a 1–4 series loss to the Miami Heat.
