NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Sean Marks on defining the Nets new culture

It’s a rare interview of an NBA GM that doesn’t touch the team’s roster at all, but that indeed is what happened when John Schuhmann of NBA.com sat down with Sean Marks to talk Nets. Instead, Marks and Schuhmann spoke at length about how Marks is creating a culture —it’s not an exaggeration to say he’s carrying out an experiment— as he directs the Brooklyn rebuild...

Power Rankings: Nets start at the bottom

Can’t they even wait till Monday? Mondays are when weekly power rankings come out. But ESPN jumped the gun and released their pre-season rank on Friday. There were no surprises for Nets fans.

Why Vegas is Wrong About the Brooklyn Nets

It was no surprise—it’s the Brooklyn Nets. The laughing stock of the NBA, the team known for the single worst trade in NBA history, and perhaps most importantly, the team with no future. That’s what they’ll tell you, but they’re wrong. The Nets do have a future, and they will most certainty win more than 20.5 games this season. Vegas released its over/under win total projections...

Nets trust Jeremy Lin as leader – and major knock on him is bogus

Jeremy Lin has had spurts when he’s been handed the keys to an NBA offense, most notably the Linsanity run in 2012 that propelled him to global fame. He’s had a full season as a starting point guard, four years ago with the James Harden-dominated Rockets. But never has he been entrusted as the leader...

Prokhorov OK with new Nets regime taking it slow on rebuild

Las Vegas isn’t just projecting the Nets to be bad this season — they’re calling them the worst team in the NBA. Brooklyn comes into the season with no pressure, and expectations so low that even notoriously impatient owner Mikhail Prokhorov is resigned to a low, slow rebuilding. “The season won’t be measured in wins...

Expectations low, but Nets no longer worry about winning now

NEW YORK (AP) Jeremy Lin will be urged to become a better leader. Brook Lopez will be challenged to rebound and defend better. Kenny Atkinson believes in being direct and honest with his players, but there's one thing the new Brooklyn Nets coach won't discuss with them. After all, the players already know some people don't think very much of them. ''I think those guys are aware...

NBA Atlantic Division Preview: Brooklyn Nets

As another NBA season nears, it’s time for our season previews. Let’s start in the Atlantic Division out East. Projected Conference Finish: 15th Best Move of Offseason: I commend the Nets for being smart enough to tank without even having their own first round pick until 2019. Caris LeVert is just more valuable as an asset to have for this particular team than Thaddeus Young...

Dogged Nets know the only way they can win games

Everybody from Las Vegas to video-game designers expect Brooklyn to be arguably the worst team in the NBA. After going 21-61 last season and not adding any All-Star talent in the offseason, even the Nets know they have earned all the dire predictions. Now they are planning on earning — and working — their way...

Justin Hamilton is Brooklyn’s X-Factor

The Nets are bound to be among the bottom handful of teams again in 2016-17, with only Boston’s first round pick at the end of the tunnel. However, Justin Hamilton has the goods to survive and thrive as a stretch-5. Standing 6-11 with a near 7-2 wingspan, Hamilton has the height, speed, and stroke to succeed in today’s NBA. Draft Express lists Spencer Hawes as Hamilton’s best...

Brooklyn Nets: What it must feel like to be Brook Lopez in the Big Apple

Brook Lopez has been on the Nets since they played in the dumpy Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Yeah, it has been that long. After eight seasons already under his belt in the league, Lopez seems like a fossil in today’s NBA even though he is only 28 years old. Maybe it’s the injuries that have made him look beleaguered physically or maybe it’s the fact that he has...

QUIZ: Name every first-round draft pick of the Brooklyn Nets since 1989

In the first year that the NBA moved the draft to a two round selection process in 1989, the Brooklyn (New Jersey) Nets made a solid pick in the first round, but ultimately landed out of the playoffs. This lead to a lottery win and the number one overall pick in 1990. The Nets have had a fare share of hits and misses in the draft. How many of their first-round picks can you name...

Brooklyn Nets selling ‘BROOKLIN’ and “BROOK-Linsanity’ t-shirts

The Brooklyn Nets are bringing back a familiar nickname for new starting point guard Jeremy Lin. Lin signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the rebuilding Nets this offseason. The organization has started marketing their new star, using a play on words to showcase Lin, center Brook Lopez, and the New York borough they play in.

Predicting the Brooklyn Nets 2016 starting lineup

The 2016-2017 season can be an exciting one for Brooklyn Nets fans. With a new regime, young talent, and new coaches all coming together, a new era of Brooklyn Nets basketball is soon to be ushered in.

Brooklyn Nets Can’t Afford to Stop Being Creative

If you’re in the business of winning, the Brooklyn Nets are not a smart investment – at least not yet.  This team has been dealt an incredibly bad hand by Billy King and Mikhail Prokhorov. However, smart management in the past year has given Brooklyn fans a glimmer of hope for the future. This is quite an accomplishment considering the circumstances. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson...

Jeremy Lin reportedly looking to trademark phrase ‘Brook-Lin’

In just 35 games with the New York Knicks a few seasons ago, Jeremy Lin basically became his own brand. The term “Linsanity” was born almost immediately, and the undrafted player out of Harvard was not prepared for it. That won’t be an issue in Brooklyn. Lin, who signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Nets this offseason, has already submitted an application to trademark...

Nets’ Luis Scola isn’t fan of New York rental prices

Luis Scola is getting a taste of the big-city life with the Brooklyn Nets. The 36-year-old forward inked a deal with Brooklyn this offseason and had to relocate after spending last year with the Toronto Raptors. It’s been quite an adjustment for the big man from a rental standpoint, as he told Marc Berman of the New York Post: “I think New York is one of the best cities in...
