  1. Nets push Teletović to take mini mid-level so Howard, other doors open up

    brooklyn-nets-logo-0

    The Nets like to make things hard on themselves. But they apparently have just cleared one more hurdle to making the very difficult trade to bring Dwight Howard to Brooklyn a little more possible. They may have reached a deal to get Mirza Teletović to take a smaller offer than they verbally agreed to, which…

  2. The Inbounds: Deron Williams and the meaning of Brooklyn cool

    Jul 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    Let’s start here: Deron Williams did not decide to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets because it was his best chance to win an NBA title. And that’s OK. Williams made a lot of comments about how winning a title would dictate his decision. But the mere fact that he limited his options to Brooklyn and…

  3. Williams, bold moves make Nets a fun team… for now

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:19 AM EST

    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    The Brooklyn Nets are a much better team right now than they were 72 hours ago. They will walk onto the court at the Barclays Center with an entertaining lineup, a team with offensive firepower, something you couldn’t really say about the squad last seen in New Jersey (they move to Brooklyn this fall). They…

  4. Deron Williams to stay with Nets, lead them into Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 7:46 PM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    No. Sleep. ‘Till Brooklyn. For Deron Williams. The most coveted free agent of this summer tweeted out late Tuesday that he had made a very tough decision — with a picture of the Brooklyn Nets new logo attached to the tweet. The two sides agreed to a five-year, $98 million deal (he cannot actually sign…

  5. Dwight Howard to Nets: It can happen, but is it likely?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic are talking to the New Jersey Nets about a possible Dwight Howard deal. And there are a few ways — complex ways — that a deal could come together. But if you think it’s a foregone conclusion — and I’m looking at you, Nets fans — you should check out what Ken…

  6. Report: Magic, Nets in talks to send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:25 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Twenty-four hours ago it looked like the Nets were moving on from Dwight Howard, but things change fast in free agency. I say change fast because a version of this deal wasn’t good enough for Orlando at last year’s trade deadline and even recently we heard the sides were far apart, but suddenly everything has…

  7. Well, now what Dwight Howard? Report says maybe Mavs.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:34 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll say this for LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony — it wasn’t pretty and drew the wrath of many upon them, but they ended up where they wanted to go. Dwight Howard is struggling with that. His plan to end up on the Brooklyn Nets — already a public relations disaster as he disavows saying…

  8. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

  9. Report: Magic to start shopping Dwight Howard before draft

    May 24, 2012, 9:23 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It sounds more and more like Orlando’s ownership and upper management, after spending a year trying to convince Dwight Howard to stay, are done. They want him, he can sign on and stay, but they are done catering to his whims. Well, now that Stan Van Gundy is gone. Orlando will start listening to offers…

  10. Report: Nets’ Wallace to opt out of deal, become free agent

    Apr 27, 2012, 6:11 PM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    As expected, the Nets poor trade for Gerald Wallace is coming home to roost. Wallace — for whom the Nets traded their first round pick in this deep draft (top three protected) — will seek free agency, according to the twitter of Stephen Bondy of the New York Daily News. Gerald Wallace says he’ll test…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Kevin Garnett‘s going to be a free agent this summer. That sounds weird just saying it. But if he doesn’t return to Boston, he’s going to have options. And one option keeps him in the Northeast, as both the New York Post and New Jersey Star-Ledger report that the Nets have interest in bringing in Garnett. What…

    Dwight Howard is still the guy at the top of the Nets most wanted list. But he is not going to be there when the Nets start playing in Brooklyn next season, so the Nets are looking at some other potential free agents who could pair well with Deron Williams — who they are desperately…

  14. Brook Lopez out a while longer as CT scan reveals another “small crack”

    Brook Lopez

    On the list of guys who you should feel bad for regarding this season, Brook Lopez has to be one of the bigger candidates. Imagine if your job kept working with you to get you back at work from an injury, but you knew the only reason they were is that they want to use…

  16. Nets looking at short term, not building a solid foundation

    Mar 16, 2012, 7:28 PM EST

    Billy King

    The Nets are moving to Brooklyn next season — they wanted to enter the nation’s largest market with a splash. They made a bold trade a year ago to get Deron Williams — giving up a lot of good prospects like Derrick Favors — in hopes they could use him and the looming bright lights…

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  19. While team shops him, Dwight Howard tells Magic “take a chance” on me

    Mar 15, 2012, 1:32 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It’s actions, not words that matter. Dwight Howard told the Magic Wednesday night to take a chance on him again, like they did when he was 18. Trust him. “They took a chance on me at 18,” Howard said (transcribed from the Orlando Sentinel’s postgame video). “And what did I do? I gave them everything…

  20. Nets would rather get Howard now rather than wait until July

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It’s not that the Nets are impatient, but the organization would rather get Dwight Howard now rather than wait until this summer. Even if that’s not the goal of Dwight’s latest statements. There are a couple of good reasons for this. One, the longer they wait the more things that can go wrong. Call it…

    Magic center Howard walks off the Magic's home basketball court after their NBA game against the Heat in Orlando

    Do the Orlando Magic feel like gambling? After the Orlando Magic came up with a dramatic 104-98 win over the Miami Heat, Dwight Howard said he wants to play the rest of the season with Orlando. Not sign an extension and stay — he wants the Orlando Magic to “roll the dice” on him. Here…

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    There are two sides to where things stand with Dwight Howard less than 48 hours before the NBA trade deadline. One is what the Magic are doing and thinking. The other is what Howard wants. What the Magic are doing is having GM Otis Smith keep fielding offers and look for deals while ownership decides…

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    We all keep waiting for some kind of definitive decision from the Orlando Magic — are they going to keep or trade Dwight Howard? Maybe the reason we don’t have that answer is that the Magic are still divided on what they want to do, or what kind of trade package they want back. That’s…

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

  25. Report: Nets GM King “considered” shutting Brook Lopez down for season

    Mar 6, 2012, 5:19 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    Nets center Brook Lopez missed the first 32 games of this season with a broken right foot. Recently, Lopez sprained his right ankle. He is expected to be out for around 3 weeks, but Nets GM Billy King has reportedly considered shutting down his young center for the remainder of the season. From Colin Stephenson…
