Dellavedova dropped 19 on Bulls in Game 6, but he’s still averaging just 6.0 points per game in playoffs

Williams is no longer a player worth the $43 million remaining on his deal, and Nets could use the stretch provision to rid themselves of the contract and free up some cap space.

Changes are ahead in Brooklyn, and Johnson sees them coming.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
Sep 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT
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…

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…

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…

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…
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
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…

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.”…

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…
