  1. 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.…

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

    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,…

  3. 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…

  4. Deron Williams will switch agents to Leon Rose, CAA

    Jun 8, 2011, 10:39 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams is switching agents — we told you that yesterday — but where he has landed may be very good for the New Jersey Nets. Williams is switching to Leon Rose, part of the powerhouse Creative Artists Agency (CAA) that represents LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and a host of other big-name stars…

  5. 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…

  6. For Newark this isn’t a stopover, this is an audition

    prudential center New Jersey

    The New Jersey Nets are using Newark and the Prudential Center as sort of a layover on the way to Brooklyn in 2012. Get out of the Meadowlands and into a better arena — read: more revenue streams — that is an easy train trip from New York to get the people in the boroughs…

  7. Nuggets, Nets, Pistons three-team ‘Melo trade talks heat up again

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:25 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Smiles

    Two different reports have the much-discussed three-team trade that would have Carmelo Anthony landing in New Jersey heating up again. Those talks were moving very fast last weekend but reportedly lost momentum early this week when the Denver Nuggets pushed for the Nets to take on Al Harrington and his four-year, $28 million contract as…

  8. Carmelo Anthony hints the Knicks may not want him, trade may take time

    Jan 10, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony practiced with the Denver Nuggets Monday — a sign that nothing is imminent on the trade front — as did everyone else whose name has come up in recent trade talks. The exception was Chauncey Billups (officially out due to a headache, which I bet all the trade rumors have become for him).…

  9. Report: Mavericks throw hat in Melo sweepstakes — but only as a rental

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Now we have some confirmation on an early post on this site that came with a little bit of speculation — it is indeed the Dallas Mavericks that is the contending team that has thrown it’s hat into the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. However they only want him as a “rental,” according to Ken Berger of…

  10. 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…

  11. Knicks and Nets, it’s a rivalry now. Almost.

    Nov 30, 2010, 3:24 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It started with a radio spot, which aired a couple of times over the weekend during Knicks games (via Nets Daily): “Hey Nets. You can walk like us, you can talk like us, but you ain’t never gonna be like us.  Knicks, Nets, Tuesday, 7:30, MSG.” Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov responded to that Tuesday in…

  12. Shaq wants to be Nets GM, keep them in New Jersey… but not for 745 days

    Shaquille O’Neal has scored more points than any player ever born in New Jersey. There you go, a little trivia to start your morning. And while some may think its death trap, a suicide rap, Shaq likes Jersey. Not enough to be on Jersey Shore… wait, we shouldn’t really put that past him. But enough…

  13. Nets start process to change team nickname: The Brooklyn…?

    Aug 11, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are about to go the way of the Buffalo Braves and the Syracuse Nationals. Not only is the team moving, but also this week they officially filed paperwork with the league to change the name of the franchise, according to the New York Daily News. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said he…

  14. 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…
