NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Why Jeremy Lin thinks Nets’ break can be a ‘turning point’

SAN FRANCISCO — The NBA schedule — play, recover, play, recover — leaves little time for practice. Or in the last-place Nets’ case, little time to work on the fundamentals and principles they so desperately need. That changes this week. Brooklyn will have its longest stretch between games all season, enjoying a day off in...

Grading the Brooklyn Nets trade deadline moves

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone and, unlike another beleaguered New York team, it did not pass the Brooklyn Nets by.  The Nets were able to make two trades, one that sent Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough to the Washington Wizards in exchange for a 2017 first round draft pick and one in which the Nets received K.J. McDaniels from the Houston Rockets for absolutely nothing...

Brooklyn Nets: A close up view of the trade deadline

The trade deadline passed this week and the Brooklyn Nets failed to do the same thing they’ve been trying to do for the last few years: trade Brook Lopez. Lopez’s name has been in trade discussions ever since the Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard saga, but the longest tenured Net still remains in black and white. While the big name players failed to move teams, the Nets still...

Back to square one for Nets

The Nets have their longest in-season layoff between now and Wednesday night —three days. Then, they’ll try to break their 16-game losing streak in Sacramento.

Brook Lopez’s struggles doom any chance for a Nets upset

OAKLAND, Calif. — Coach Kenny Atkinson admitted his Nets had lost their way defensively. But against offensive juggernaut Golden State, it wasn’t their defense that cost them, but Brook Lopez’s offense. After getting shredded defensively in Friday’s 112-95 blowout loss at Denver, the Nets at least were competitive a day later against the NBA’s best...

Why Sean Marks’ under-the-radar move could pay off for Nets

DENVER — While getting a first-round pick without dealing Brook Lopez will get the headlines, plucking K.J. McDaniels without giving up essentially anything might have been general manager Sean Marks’ shrewdest move in his first trade deadline. With loaded Houston needing cap relief for a win-now mode, Marks swiped McDaniels for the cash, which the...

Nets have reportedly lowered their asking price for Brook Lopez

The Brooklyn Nets originally wanted two first-round picks for Brook Lopez, but it appears the DeMarcus Cousins trade has changed the Nets’ thinking on the matter. As ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne so perfectly put it: “It’s depressed the market for everyone.” Regarded as the best center available on the trade market, Cousins was dealt to the New Orleans Hornets for only one future...

The Brooklyn Nets are getting red ads on their jerseys, and it looks awful
