How the Nets could spend their $18.6 million in cap space

The Nets struck out on their third straight restricted free-agent target when Houston matched their offer sheet to Donatas Motiejunas. So the question now is: What’s next?

Nets plan on using LeVert at the point ... but not just yet

It’s been rumored, but now there’s confirmation. The Nets see Caris LeVert not just as a wing, but a point guard —a 6’7” point guard at that. But it will take a while, says Kenny Atkinson. “My gut feeling is, to make it easier on him, we’ll start with the wing position and getting that down and feeling as the season goes,” Atkinson said when asked how he’ll use...

Caris LeVert left waiting for Nets debut after tireless rehab

Relentless. Diligent. The first to arrive at practice and the last to leave, working as hard as anybody the whole time he’s there. That’s what the Nets say about Caris LeVert.

Nets fall apart twice in gifting game to Wizards

Brooklyn Nets: Three reasons why this Nets team is better than you think

The Brooklyn Nets are not a playoff team, that is obvious, but if you are going to take this team lightly you will regret it. The Nets stand at 5-14 and have given up a league high 114.2 point per game, but these stats aren’t all the Nets have shown in this season. There is promise on this roster, even if most of it is from their surprisingly impressive head coach. They have found...

Report: Nets likely to sign Motiejunas to offer sheet

In desperate need of talent anywhere they can get it, the Brooklyn Nets appear to be rolling the dice on Donatas Motiejunas. According to a report by Marc Stein of ESPN on Thursday, the Nets are likely to sign Motiejunas to an offer sheet as early as Friday.

How good are the Brooklyn Nets?

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a massive slide losing six straight games. This has been disappointing after a promising start at 4-5 had the team exceeding expectations. Being thin on their depth chart, injuries have taken a huge hit to the team. Not only have injuries held back Brooklyn, but the inability to play defense at a high level forces the team to be nearly perfect on offense...

Brooklyn Nets need Jeremy Lin back ASAP

The Nets were projected by many to be one of, if not the worst team in the league this year. However they got off to a surprise start that no one saw coming to begin the season but that came to a halt when starting point guard Jeremy Lin got hurt.
