  1. Report: Andray Blatche agrees to re-sign with Nets

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:12 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Andray Blatche was a more than serviceable big off the bench for the Nets last season, and it looks as though he’ll get a chance to repeat that performance next year. Blatche has agreed to re-sign with Brooklyn, as first reported by longtime NBA scribe Peter Vecsey. Howard Beck of the New York Times reported…

  2. Report: Pacers, Chris Copeland share mutual interest

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:48 PM EDT

    Chris Copeland, Tyler Hansbrough

    The Knicks – who had the NBA’s third-best regular-season offense – struggled to score in their second-round series against the Pacers, posting an offensive rating (100.4) that would have ranked 23rd in the regular season. Strangely, New York seemed to have an answer for its offensive woes. Chris Copeland shot 11-for-20 in the series, and…

  3. Celtics GM Danny Ainge: “We are not tanking”

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Define tanking. How you choose to do that will determine if you think the Boston Celtics are tanking. They certainly are rebuilding after they shipped out Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn for a package of three first round picks, the talented young MarShon Brooks, and the anchor contracts of Kris Humphries (one year,…

  4. C.J. Watson headed to the Indiana Pacers. That’s a good get.

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    C.J. Watson

    Reports had circulated that C.J. Watson, who spent last season backing up Deron Williams in Brooklyn, was negotiating with the Indiana Pacers. Then came this tweet Monday from Watson. Keep up with the pace!!!! 👀👌✔ — C.J. Watson (@Quietstorm_32) July 1, 2013 Nothing is official until ink stains the paper on July 10 (the first…

  5. Report: Kyle Korver to Nets ‘in the bag’

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets were a below-average 3-point shooting team last season, and their 3-point percentage plummeted to a lowly 31.6 percent a first-round loss to the Bulls. Paul Pierce should help, but Brooklyn could use even more outside shooting. Not only would it add points from a very efficient area, it would help space the floor.…

  6. Report: Celtics to receive MarShon Brooks in deal with Nets, Reggie Evans stays in Brooklyn

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    One of the criticisms of the Celtics in their deal that will send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets was that aside from the future first round picks, there wasn’t a lot of young talent immediately coming back in return. Boston was set to receive Gerald Wallace (with three years and over $30…

  7. Are the Brooklyn Nets contenders now? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    Thanks to a blockbuster trade with Boston, next season the Brooklyn Nets will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. They will bring Jason Terry off the bench. They will start five former All-Stars and bring a former Sixth Man of the Year off the bench. So can we say…

  8. Kevin Garnett agrees to deal that will send him and Paul Pierce to the Nets

    Jun 28, 2013, 2:13 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    When the initial shock wore off after hearing the beginnings of a deal between the Celtics and Nets that would land both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Brooklyn, the one thing that could prevent it all from happening immediately came into focus. Garnett is one of a very few players in the league with…

  9. Report: Garnett signs off on trade that would send him, Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #2 10:56 PM: Kevin Garnett will agree to waive his no-trade clause, clearing a major hurdle for the deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. That makes this deal far more likely. It is not finalized yet, and can’t be officially executed until July 10, but the teams are working to get the…

  11. NBA Draft rumors roundup: Len or Noel No. 1; Nets/Celtics talk deal

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    On the day of the NBA Draft rumors fly fast and furious — a lot of it fueled by agents trying to create false demand for their clients (hoping other teams pick them even higher), some fueled by teams throwing out smokescreens. Every once in a while there is a kernel of truth. So take…

  12. Report: LaMarcus Aldridge is unhappy, wants out of Portland

    Jun 27, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers

    From a distance, it seems like there is a lot to like for Trail Blazers fans — they have an All-Star big man in LaMarcus Aldridge and the Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard at the point. Those are good building blocks (although there is certainly a long ways to go). Plus, Portland has great…

  13. Jazz owner admits Sloan quit after another fight with Deron Williams

    Jun 26, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Houston Rockets, Game 7

    Didn’t we all pretty much know this is how it went down? There has always been a bit of a cloud of mystery around Jerry Sloan’s sudden mid-season departure from the Utah Jazz a couple years back (followed by Deron Williams getting traded away a few weeks later). Sloan and D-Will were at loggerheads often…

  14. Report: Nets contacted Celtics to inquire about Kevin Garnett

    Jun 26, 2013, 12:17 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the wake of Doc Rivers leaving the Celtics to coach the Clippers, and with Boston GM Danny Ainge non-committal on the futures of both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett with the franchise, it’s only natural that other teams would begin to come calling to check on the availability of the Celtics’ aging stars. The…

  15. Draft rumor roundup: Can Cleveland find a taker for the No. 1 pick?

    Jun 25, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Jarnell Stokes, Willie Cauley-Stein, Nerlens Noel

    Here is a quick roundup of some NBA Draft rumors floating around Tuesday morning: • The Cleveland Cavaliers are still shopping the No. 1 pick around and trying to trade out of that spot. While other names come up (because there is no dominant player in this draft) expect Nerlens Noel to be the No.…

  16. Report: Nets talk deal that would send MarShon Brooks to Minnesota

    Jun 24, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    MarShon Brooks

    The Timberwolves are stockpiling a lot of young talent — Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Derrick Williams, Chase Budinger — and there are some reports they may add to that. How about adding MarShon Brooks to the mix? That is a reported discussion going on according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily…

  17. Brook Lopez has foot surgery, expected to be back on the court in August

    Jun 24, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    The Nets announced that Brook Lopez underwent surgery to replace a screw in his right foot, which was previously surgically repaired, and that he should be ready to resume basketball activities in August. From Tim Bontemps of the New York Post: The bent screw was discovered in Lopez’s postseason physical, and was “subsequently replaced,” which…

  18. Chandler Parsons talks daily with Dwight Howard about signing with the Rockets

    Jun 22, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard goes up to shoot under pressure from Houston Rockets Chandler Parsons during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets are trying to clear cap space in order to pursue Dwight Howard, and he reportedly views that favorably. It’s one of the subtle ways teams are allowed to communicate, indirectly obviously, with free agents before July 1. Of course, teams can use impermissible methods, too. But there’s also another way Houston is getting…

  20. Jordan Farmar wants to return to NBA

    Jun 14, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

    BASKET-EURL-OLYMPIAKOS-EFES

    Remember Jordan Farmar? He was a key reserve on two Lakers championship teams and then signed with the Nets. In 2011-12, he scored a career-high 10.4 points per game on a career-best 44 percent 3-point shooting. Then, he was traded to the Hawks in the Joe Johnson deal, bought out and signed in Turkey never…

  21. D-Will, other NBA players respond to Kidd being hired by Nets

    Jun 13, 2013, 9:57 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    One of the advantages Jason Kidd had in his quest to get the Brooklyn Nets coaching job was a long-standing good relationship with Deron Williams. The Nets aren’t going to be able to do much to improve their roster this summer, they need to count on player improvement and guys being coached up. The sense…

  22. Reports: Jason Kidd finalizes deal, will be Nets new coach

    Jun 12, 2013, 8:42 PM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    Wednesday afternoon part of the Brooklyn Nets management team spent better than four hours listening to Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw explain why he should be the new head coach in Brooklyn. Reportedly it was a very good presentation. But the other part of management was finalizing a deal with Jason Kidd to go…

  23. Jason Kidd’s plan to hire Lawrence Frank has Nets taking him ‘seriously’ as head-coaching candidate

    Jun 10, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BASKET-NBA-GBR-KNICKS-PISTONS

    The Nets won 49 games last season. They have excellent players at the two most important positions, Deron Williams at point guard and Brook Lopez at center. Their owner is probably willing to pay top dollar for a coach. Yet, they’re taking seriously a candidate with absolutely no coaching  – head or assistant – experience.…

    Jun 9, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Whether he was in uniform or in a suit on the sidelines as he recovered from a torn Achilles, a lot of Clippers players would turn to Chauncey Billups for advice. How to deal with certain defenses, how to cover particular players, whatever it was he was like another assistant coach for the team. So…

  25. C.J. Watson to opt out, become unrestricted free agent

    Jun 9, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    C.J. Watson

    Who needs a solid backup point guard? C.J. Watson, who played for the Nets last season and is a six-year NBA veteran, is going to opt out and become a free agent this summer, reports Peter Vecsey. This is not a real surprise, he was set to make $1.1 million next season and likely can…
