Brooklyn Nets

  1. He’s not just an owner, Jay-Z to help design new Nets uniforms

    Shawn Jay-Z Carter

    I’m now picturing the Nets warming up in hoodies that say Rocawear across the chest. But that’s not going to happen. Probably. Still, Nets owner Jay-Z — the rap mogul who has had his hand in a number of businesses, including fashion — is going to help design the new Brooklyn Nets uniforms, according to…

  2. About the owners losing money, it’s really complicated

    There are NBA owners who have wondered if player endorsements should not be money in the basketball related income pool — those players wouldn’t make their money if not for the teams. But what about the other side of that coin — money the owners make on other businesses because they own and NBA franchise…

  3. They will be the Brooklyn Nets, Jay-Z will open the building

    It’s became official Monday — next season they will be the Brooklyn Nets. To open their new arena — the Barclay Center — hip hop mogul and minority Nets owner Jay-Z will do a series of concerts, something that also was announced on Monday, something the New York Daily News told us to expect. The odds that…

  4. All-Star Game in Orlando may have December deadline

    Amway-Center

    Already, the deadline has passed for the first week of the preseason — the NBA has cancelled it. Without a handshake agreement in the next week, the rest of the preseason is at risk as well. Not long after that comes the start of the regular season. But what about the All-Star Game? In 1999,…

  5. How does “Brooklyn Nets” sound? Looks like team’s name.

    Kris Humphries

    Next fall, the New Jersey Nets will follow Bruce Springsteen’s advice and “get out while we’re young” and drive up the road to the brand new Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Which means the “New Jersey” part of their name will be a bit out of place. The Nets part could change, too, although teams tend…

  6. Nets get extension with YES Network, double TV deal

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    The New Jersey Nets just made a lot more money. The soon-to-be Brooklyn team (they move for the start of the 2012 season) will double its annual intake to $20 million a season as part of a 10-year extension that will keep the Nets on the YES network until 2032, reports the Sports Business Journal.…

  7. Nets betting on Brooklyn, new building to sell free agents

    Jul 28, 2011, 11:21 AM EDT

    Arena Atrium Barclay Center Brooklyn

    Sometimes, franchises need to change from the ground up. That’s what the New Jersey Nets are doing — new owner (a billionaire Russian playboy), a new star player in Deron Williams (who they are trying to keep) and a new building. The Nets were showing off that new building — the $1 billion Barclay’s center,…

  8. Nets new Barclays Center will look swanky, if you’re rich

    Jul 25, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Arena Atrium Barclay Center Brooklyn

    It is possible the next time the Nets play a game it will be in Brooklyn. We hope not, because that would mean an entire NBA season wiped out (greed is one of the seven deadly sins for a reason) but it could happen. While the players are locked out construction is not at the…

  9. Nets take note — Deron Williams fires agent

    Jun 7, 2011, 8:47 PM EDT

    Deron Williams presser

    This may mean something big next summer. It may mean nothing. But it is interesting. Deron Williams fired his agent Bob McClaren, according to a tweet from Michele Steele of Bloomberg. He has yet to announce the hiring of a new one. Williams can opt out of his current deal in the summer of 2012,…

  10. Deron Williams says he’d consider extension with Nets

    Apr 15, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn, Deron Williams

    New Jersey is in full on sales mode — they have to keep Deron Williams in house. They send out Derrick Favors, they made their bet that if they got D-Will to the team they could keep him and build around him. That bet may pay off. Williams can opt out of his current deal…

  11. Nets want to re-sign Kris Humphries (then maybe trade him)

    Apr 6, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries

    Kris Humphries is an unrestricted free agent but says wants to come back to the Nets and be there when they move to Brooklyn. The Nets want Kris Humphries back. Well, at least until they trade him. But we’ll get to that later. Humphries had a break out season — credit The Kardashian Effect —…

  12. Deron Williams to be willing recruiter for Nets

    Mar 1, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

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

    Deron Williams, welcome to the front line of the recruiting wars. If you’re going to win in the NBA, you need a few stars together in one place — and that means you’re going to have to sell. You’re going to have to recruit like Gene Chizik. Especially if you are not Boston/Los Angeles/New York/Miami.…

  13. Now what for the Nets? Relax, have a vodka shot, stop with quick fix.

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It’s just not that easy. All the swagger of a Russian billionaire playboy and a hip-hop icon and mogul can not instantly transform an NBA franchise. It cannot get free agents to walk through the door, let alone knock it down. The Nets Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z made a good pitch to LeBron James, but…

  14. Could the New Jersey Nets become the Brooklyn New Yorkers?

    When the Nets finally make their long-anticipated move to Brooklyn, New York, at least part of their name is guaranteed to change. New Jersey will be stricken from the franchise’s moniker for good, but along with that adjustment is a possible alteration of the team’s surname. ‘Brooklyn Nets’ seems catchy enough, but the temptation to…

  15. Prokhorov has a plan, it involves making a lot of money in Brooklyn

    Jul 28, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov is about making money. Do not ever forget that. He’s also good at it. He has a plan. Prokhorov spoke with Forbes Russia and laid out his plans (which the New York Daily News translated): “When you’re talking about the business of sports, you can’t leave out passion and love. That’s why, in…

  16. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are waiting on Chris Bosh's decision

    Jul 4, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    A significant ramification of all of these free agents being free together and wanting to play with each other is the timing. If you’ll notice, every one of them is taking their sweet time. Joe Johnson was offered the max-max from Atlanta, and is still waiting to see if he can justify going with New…

  17. Mikhail Prokhorov may rename Nets (he has other bold plans, too)

    May 19, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov talks a good game. Which is more of a good game than we have seen out of the Nets is a while. The comments out of a media brunch in New York Wednesday morning dripped of high expectations, confidence bordering on hubris (maybe not bordering on…) and big plans. Like his suggestion that…

  18. It's finally official, Mikhail Prokhorov owns the New Jersey Nets

    May 11, 2010, 6:04 PM EDT

    It’s the dream of fans of so many struggling NBA teams — start the rebuilding plan by getting a new owner. An insanely rich one willing to spend. In New Jersey, step one is complete — the NBA Board of Governors has approved Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov as the owner of the New Jersey Nets.…

  19. "Air rights" lawsuit latest block to Nets new Brooklyn home, ownership change

    May 5, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    Freddy Krueger is back. So is another lawsuit to block the plans for the Atlantic Yards development that will be the new home of the Nets in Brooklyn. Both will not die. And both are only back because of the money. The New York Daily News has your details on maybe the most frivolous lawsuit…

  20. Good sign for Nets: Prokhorov's last team was a big winner

    Apr 27, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov’s office is bigger and more expensively furnished than your entire apartment. His secretary is eye catching. Frankly, you’d move into his office if you could. That is the first thing you’ll take away from a New York Times story on the soon-to-be Nets owner (and you get that just from the picture). The…

  21. Nets moving to Newark before Brooklyn

    Feb 18, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets will become the Brooklyn (INSERT BRANDING HERE) in 2012. But until then, they need somewhere else to play, as the IZOD center is widely referred to as “a dump.” So they’re headed to Newark, to play at the Prudential Center. Some of the advantages of the move are as follows: Closer…
