    You know it’s preseason when Wizards rookie Glen Rice Jr. is on the floor at the end of a two-point game. But it was Rice that made the play sending the Nets and Wizards into overtime. With the Wizards down two and time for a final shot the ball was in the hands of Eric…

    Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez

    But what they really want to do is direct… and maybe win a few basketball games.

    Considering the age and injury history of the Brooklyn Nets starting five this season, managing minutes and injuries should rank pretty high on the list of priorities for head coach Jason Kidd.

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The Knicks had a great regular season in 2013, finishing with the second-best record in the East behind only the defending champion Miami Heat.

    Brooklyn Nets guard Williams reacts after Chicago Bulls were fouled late in fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of bonding to do — and fast. They have a veteran team that can win big if a lot of things go right for them — one of those keys is they need to bond as a unit. This isn’t the Rockets, which can take a year to have…

  10. Doc Rivers thinks trade could rejuvenate Paul Pierce

    Aug 5, 2013, 10:43 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    It was pretty evident Paul Pierce didn’t love the idea of being traded. It seemed a situation where he intellectually understood this as a good move for him, but after 15 years as a Celtic is was understandably emotionally hard. But Doc Rivers thinks it could be good for him. Rivers, who left Boston as…

  11. Pierce says in Brooklyn he’ll be a “glorified role player”

    Jul 21, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics were Paul Pierce’s team. It was the “big three” era but Pierce was the face of the Celtics, the best and most loved Celtics star since the Bird era. Even he admits putting on a Nets jersey next season will be a little strange at first, but it also will be very different…

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets - Game One

    Andray Blatche and Kevin Garnett have gone back and forth at each other for a few years now — going back to a trash talk filled game in 2010. Since then they have traded elbows on the court and barbs off it through the media. Now, they are teammates in Brooklyn. The Nets re-signed Blatche…

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kirilenko looks to pass the ball as he falls to the fall in front of teammate Williams and Brooklyn Nets guard Johnson in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The rich get richer. Or the rich get poorer, depending on your perspective. The Nets, already set to pay an unprecedentedly large luxury tax, will add another player who adds to the bill. Peter Vecsey of the New York Post: This just in: Nets have signed. Kirilenko for mini mid-level, 3.1M per — Peter Vecsey…

  14. Five players who have stood out at the Orlando Summer League

    Jul 9, 2013, 2:17 PM EST

    Kelly Olynyk

    Be careful about reading too much into success at NBA Summer League — the old adage is Summer League doesn’t tell you who can play in the NBA, only who cannot. Look at it this way, last year’s Las Vegas Summer League co-MVPs were Damian Lillard and Josh Selby. A future Rookie of the Year…

  15. Only in Summer League: Mason Plumlee dunk-fest (VIDEO)

    Jul 9, 2013, 1:22 AM EST

    2013 NBA Draft

    One of the positives coming into the draft for Duke center Mason Plumlee was that he was a good athlete for his size — he moves well when he rolls, he runs the floor well in transition, and he can finish at the rim. Combine those attributes with the up-and-down, disjointed game of Summer League and…

Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

    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.

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

    Jun 10, 2013, 4:17 PM EST

    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 4, 2013, 2:56 PM EST

Carlesimo held a conference call on Thursday to talk all things NBA, but much of the…

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak.
