New Jersey Nets

  1. Report: Lebron James, John Calipari being shopped as package deal.

    May 17, 2010, 1:46 AM EDT

    Buy one, get the second one at an exorbitant full price. And it may be worth it. May. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls are one of the team that have been approached about interest in a LeBron James and John Calipari package deal. League sources said Sunday that noted NBA power broker William…

  2. Nets move to Newark may actually help with a free agent: Shaq

    May 15, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    When the Nets announced a relocation to the Prudential Center, it was largely seen as an addition by subtraction. You subtract the IZOD Center and you add an arena that isn’t referred to as something resembling a trash compactor. But other than that, there wasn’t much to get excited about in a relocation to the…

  3. Kris Humphries will probably hang with the Nets, soak up some cap space

    May 14, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    While the Knicks have the glitz and glamor of Madison Square Garden, the Nets have undoubtedly the brighter future given each team’s current assets. For the price of Eddy Curry ($11.3 million in 2010-2011), New Jersey has both Devin Harris ($9.0 mil) and Brook Lopez ($2.4 mil). They have Courtney Lee, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Terrence Williams,…

  4. Can the Nets make a splashy coach hire?

    May 14, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov wants to make an entrance. The new New Jersey Nets owner will as the tallest representative at the draft lottery next Tuesday (well, unless the Clippers decide to send Chris Kaman, which has the potential for high comedy, so I hope they do). But he also reportedly wants to make a coaching splash…

  5. Next decade of Cavaliers on the line with LeBron

    May 14, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The New York Knicks have spent the last two years doing nothing but clearing cap space. All for him. The New Jersey Nets have a nice young core and a new, insanely rich owner who throws a mean party. That should attract him. The Chicago Bull have become the frontrunner because of their core. The…

  6. Nets wisely waiting until after the lottery to sign their next head coach

    May 12, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Though I’m sure all of the ’08-’09 Nets are eager to erase any and all semblances of the nightmare season that was, they’ll have to wait just a bit longer before the new coaching regime can officially begin. According to Al Iannazzone of NorthJersey.com, Rod Thorn hasn’t even spoken to the coaching candidates already with…

  7. 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.…

  8. Nets would draft John Wall with top pick, are already getting Devin Harris trade calls

    May 11, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    After the season the Nets had, it feels like the only way the karmic scales balance out is if New Jersey wins the draft lottery, if they get the top overall pick in June. The Nets may only have a 25 percent chance at a top spot, but somehow it just seems fair if they…

  9. Jeff Van Gundy: What's so wrong about a serious head coach?

    May 6, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    “We need a guy who can relate to today’s player.” You here variants of that sentence in so many coaching searches, teams looking for a guy who can relate to, joke around with and get through to players that way. Jeff Van Gundy wants to know why? In talking about why Boston assistant coach Tom…

  10. "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…

  11. LeBron James home next season: Place your bets

    May 3, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Part of the beauty of society/crumbling of our nation’s moral fiber (take your pick) is that you can bet on just about anything. Just a few mouse clicks and you can bet anything from presidential elections to the Oscars. Oh, and where LeBron James will suit up next year. Bodog.com put up the numbers, and…

  12. 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…

  13. Please welcome the flood of LeBron speculation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    There have been discussions of it for years. It’s slowly been increasing; a major article here, a random rumor there. But now, with July and the free agency period just four months away, we’ve finally come to it. Everyone and their momma has an idea on what LeBron’s going to do. Now, to be clear,…

  14. How good is Calipari at developing NBA talent? Ask the Thunder's newest player.

    Feb 21, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Coach John Calipari of Kentucky has produced two top-two players out of the last two drafts, and likely the last two Rookie of the Year award winners. He’s likely to have three of his players in the top ten this year (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson). And if you need any further proof of…

  15. Desperate times call for desperate Nets

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The Nets are, well, you know. BAD. And in these tough economic times, for a fanbase that’s never been exactly astounding in attendance even in the best of times, the Nets have been forced to resort to… unorthodox methods for boosting attention for the team. First they’ve managed to get minority owner Jay-Z (or as…

  16. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Atlantic Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Atlantic Division. Boston Celtics:…
