The 1998–99 NBA season was the Nets' 32nd season in the National Basketball Association, and 23rd season in East Rutherford, New Jersey. After a lockout wiped out nearly half of the season, the Nets signed free agents Eric Murdock and Scott Burrell while acquiring Jim McIlvaine from the Seattle SuperSonics. However, they got off to a poor start losing 18 of their first 21 games. At midseason, Sam Cassell, who was out with an ankle injury was traded along with Chris Gatling to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three team trade, as the Nets acquired Stephon Marbury from the Minnesota Timberwolves. As the season winded down, the Nets were dealt a blow when Jayson Williams' career was ended with a severe leg injury. The Nets finished last place in the Atlantic Division with a 16–34 record. Following the season, Murdock was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.
