  1. Reports: NBA to announce Nets/Knicks will co-host 2015 All-Star Game

    Sep 24, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    We told you this was coming a while ago, but on Wednesday the NBA will make it official: The NBA All-Star game is going back to one of basketball’s meccas, where the streets will make you feel brand new, bright lights will inspire you and all that… The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will…

  2. League called Knicks, Nets to meeting, told them to play nice

    Aug 27, 2013, 11:35 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    There is a natural tension between the Knicks and Nets — the Knicks are the long-established team in New York; the Nets come into Brooklyn, they have been brash, and they are trying to steal part of that market share. Paul Pierce and Raymond Felton have gone back and forth a little on the issue…

  3. Josh Childress is still garnering NBA interest

    Jul 29, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Josh Childress, Draymond Green

    Josh Childress certainly isn’t as highly regarded as he was when he decided to leave an offer on the table from the Atlanta Hawks and instead go overseas in the summer of 2008. That doesn’t mean the swingman isn’t still coveted by NBA teams, though, because he’s apparently narrowed his options down to three teams…

  4. Andray Blatche ran out of gas on the highway. Which is about the most Blatche thing ever.

    Nov 5, 2012, 12:19 PM EDT

    Jason Terry, Jared Sullinger

    We’ve all been there — the gas warning light comes on and you think to yourself “I can still make it home, then I’ll get gas in the morning.” Then the next morning comes and you’re running late and it’s “I can make it to work, I think, then I’ll get gas afterwards.” And you…

  5. Joe Johnson wants it made known that he didn’t ask to be traded from Atlanta

    Oct 6, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson

    Joe Johnson was the face of the Hawks for over half-a-decade. He as a six-time All-Star with Atlanta, and in retrospect, took them to a level of respectability that gets overlooked because of how tough his era turned out to be. Now that he’s in Brooklyn, apparently everyone’s asking him why he decided to bail…

  6. Is Billy King a lock for Executive of the Year?

    Sep 22, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Billy King

    That’s right, I’m doing a prospective Executive of the Year post in September. Training camp doesn’t start for a week. What do you want from me? Mikhail Prokhorov told reporters this week, via the New York Post: Prokhorov on the job @bkdefend did retooling the @brooklynnets roster: “I think, I’m sure, I do believe he’ll…

  7. Quote of the Day: Prokhorov’s still waiting for Dolan to RSVP

    Sep 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Russians Go To The Polls In Presidential Election

    Mikhail Prokhorov has deliberately stoked up a fire between himself and James Dolan. The Nets want to take over basketball in New York and are using the confrontational, outsiders-invading tactic, stirring up trouble and taking pot shots. This goes all the way back to the summer of 2010 when Prokhorov and the Nets were putting up…

  8. Barclays Center officially opens doors in Brooklyn

    Sep 21, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    Brooklyn New Arena

    Brooklyn has a professional sports team again — but this ain’t baseball. And the new, intentionally-rusted looking Barclays Center is not going to be confused with Ebbets Field. Still, this could be something good for Brooklyn. It certainly will be good for the Nets (much better than their Jersey homes). Friday was the official ribbon…

  9. NBA Season Preview: Brooklyn Nets

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Last Season: I want you to imagine the most you’ve ever vomited. Like, literally, the greatest single bout of nauseated vomiting you’ve ever gone through. I want you to think about what you ate, what it smelled like, that cold, hard porcelain  or unfeeling trash can that embraced you after the day-old shellfish or that…

  10. Is this a glimpse of the new Jay-Z inspired Nets uniforms?

    Sep 19, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    via Instagram

    We will find out Friday what the Nets official uniforms look like, but this leaked photo gives us a pretty good idea. I like what Jay-Z has done here (he was the guy behind the look). It’s simple, it’s clean, it’s classic. It is something that matches well with a Yankees hat (which Jay-Z believes…

  11. The Inbounds: Why players and their agents should consider a franchise’s spending history in free agency decisions

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler react to a call in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Two and a half weeks ago, Business Week released a study on the “smartest spenders in the NBA.” Kurt talked about the top and bottom ten here. It’s nothing shocking. The Lakers spend really well! The Wizards and Kings spend really badly! Turns out there’s a high correlation between “being a really good team” and…

  12. Deron Williams explains why players flock to major markets

    Sep 11, 2012, 12:34 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams was not trying to make a statement about the balance of small versus large markets in the NBA, he was simply answering a question posed to him by the New York Post. Williams, the star point guard of the Brooklyn Nets, is on the cover of the new video game “NBA Baller Beats.”…

  13. Nets exploring adding Eddy Curry, Josh Childress among others

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Eddy Curry poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    At this point, you have to wonder if the Nets will be sad when they have no more roster spots to spend money on. Yahoo Sports reports that the Nets are considering several options for their final two available roster spots including… Eddy Curry. The Nets could use Curry. They’re not particularly loaded down low…

  14. Brook Lopez says he’s 90 percent

    Aug 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Brook Lopez broke his foot in December, before the season. After just five games, he sustained an ankle injury, and that was the season. He re-signed with the Nets during their shopping binge on a four-year max deal that will pay him over $12 million each year for the duration of the contract. Training camp…

  15. Report: Nets-Magic Howard deal blew up because of Orlando animosity

    Aug 11, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Business is business. But business is conducted by humans, and humans have emotions, like pride, anger, and resentment. And it turns out that what may have sunk a potential Nets-Magic deal wasn’t the deal itself, but how Orlando felt about the Nets. From the New York Daily News: A league source told the Daily News…

  16. Spike Lee will not be turning in his Knicks gear for black-and-white

    Aug 5, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Spike Lee

    Don’t expect Spike Lee to be rocking the black-and-white at any point next season. With the Nets headed to Barclays to open their first season in Brooklyn, there will be some defections. Some fans aren’t all that committed and it won’t take much to get them on board with the idea of swapping out the…

  17. The Inbounds: Hennigan’s Rainbow

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Earlier this month, it seemed like new Magic GM Rob Hennigan was trapped, and succumbing to the pressure. Word spread that the Nets were that magical word, “close” to a deal for Dwight Howard, in one of the most complicated trades maybe ever proposed, involving up to 14 players being swapped. The result was shady…

  18. The Inbounds: The new Brooklyn Empire and the Crown of Relevance

    Jul 16, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets logo

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Sometime last Wednesday, after yet another round on Twitter battling the Brooklyn faithful (and they are a faithful lot for…

  19. Joe Johnson says the Nets are ‘definitely’ better than the Knicks. Here we go.

    Jul 14, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson

    Let the Battle for the Basketball Boroughs commence. We’re headed for a new rivalry, as the Nets and Knicks face off for the soul of hoops in Gotham, and the Nets have no plans to enter the arena humbly nor quietly. At a pep rally in Brooklyn introducing Joe Johnson, Johnson told reporters that the…

  20. Camby postpones Heat visit, will meet with Knicks, as Nets come in as dark horse

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    Remember what we told you about Marcus Camby and the Heat and visiting and maybe a sign-and-trade? Yeah, chill on that. From the Miami Herald: Free agent center Marcus Camby’s scheduled Saturday visit to South Florida to meet with the Heat was postponed Saturday morning because the Heat no longer has its $3.1 million mid…

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

    Jul 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    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…

  22. Deron Williams “frustrated” with losing in New Jersey

    Jan 2, 2012, 12:28 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Dwight Howard

    Things are ugly in New Jersey — and they could get a lot worse. The Nets fell to 1-4 Sunday after getting handled by the Cavaliers on Sunday. They are not a good team. The only thing that would make it worse is if they lost Deron Williams to free agency this summer… so maybe…

  23. The Nets have a new logo… for their last year in Jersey

    Dec 7, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Nets logo crop

    Jersey Strong. Brooklyn Ready. That is your new Nets slogan for this season, the team’s last in the swamps of Jersey. Please don’t ask us to explain it. To the right, you see the new logo, celebrating 35 years of history in the state they are deserting (with nice ABA ball touch to recall the…

  24. Might Nets try to go big, get a center for twin towers look?

    Oct 7, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    The Nets have a lot of challenges to deal with when the lockout ends. And they have ticking clock — Deron Williams can opt out and walk at the end of the season if he wants. Most people — including we here at PBT — think at upgrade at the two forward spots makes the…

  25. If you have the accent, Brooklyn Nets need announcer

    Sep 30, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    BrooklynBridgeSunsetHDRSML

    Do you have a thick Brooklyn accent, one that makes people instantly think of Coney Island and egg creams? Can you yell? Then we may have a job for you. With their move to Brooklyn next season, the Nets are looking for a new public address announcer and are hosting open tryouts, according to the…
