On Friday we discussed what the Nets lost this offseason. In this feature, we discuss what the Nets have gained this offseason, and why these additions should keep you optimistic about the 2014-2015 season.
The Nets most recent signing, Jerome Jordan , could give Brooklyn an intriguing piece who might be kept on past training camp. Jordan has only played 21 career games in the NBA, with the Knicks in 2011-2012, but he has ideal size for a big man in Lionel Hollins ' system.
For whatever reason last year, Deron Williams deferred team leadership to Paul Pierce , Kevin Garnett and later Joe Johnson . It might have been his injuries.
It's buried in the middle of a story on the Clippers signing Hedo Turkoglu , and is treated as if it's a minor development ...for L.A., but ESPN's Arash Markazi writes that Doc Rivers is about to sign Lawrence Frank as an assistant coach. The Clippers are also close to finalizing their coaching staff.
This was just a thought crossing my mind of how Mason Plumlee could be a game changer sort of like how Tyson Chandler was for that other team in NYC . It just the first thing that comes to mind when I him play, to me if he comes out of playing for team USA with anything it should be Rebounding, and a stronger defensive instinct, of course he needs to work on his shooting touch but maybe 2-3 years down the line he will be a contender for a spot on the team.
The Brooklyn Nets and their capped-out roster came up short of championship aspirations last season when they fell in the second round to the Miami Heat . So now, here we are yet again with another dramatic offseason in the books and training camp just weeks away.
Andrei Kirilenko's home outside Salt Lake City was burglarized over the weekend but his wife, Masha Lopatova told KSL TV in Utah that little of value was taken. Kirlenko, who spent the summer in St. Tropez on the French Riviera and Utah, has been back in New York for about a month.
Billy King, who played with Danny Ferry at Duke and has been a lifelong friend, on Thursday issued a statement to Zach Lowe of Grantland. Ferry is in the midst of a bit of controversy after a transcript and then audio tape surfaced of the Hawks' GM making an insensitive comment about Luol Deng.
Jason Kidd spent one season as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets , but it never felt like he was at home in the city of New York, let alone the borough of Brooklyn. After having lobbied for the job just months prior to his retirement from the NBA as a player, Kidd over-played his hand at season's end and soon found himself as the newest head coach of the Bucks and living in Milwaukee.
It wasn't easy in the early goings, but the USA Men's Basketball team took off in the second half and took care of business against a tough Lithuania team, 96-68, and now advances to the FIBA World Cup finals. Klay Thompson led the way for the USA, after scoring 14 first half points, playing a bigger role when Stephen Curry got into early foul trouble.
Team USA will take on Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup Semifinals. It's not going to be an easy one, with Lithuania boasting plenty of size in the middle, but Team USA has been rolling through the tournament thus far and with Spain done in the tournament, the light at the end of the tunnel is much brighter.
Jerome Jordan , a 7'1" center who last played in the NBA for the Knicks two years ago, has been signed to a training camp contract, a league source tells NetsDaily. The signing is expected to be announced later Thursday.
Last year I had ask if you could post your game/play reviews using animated gifs that you can automatically play when the mouse hovers over the image instead of videos since videos are often blocked in the workplace. I believe Reed had said he wasn't familiar with how to do this.
Zach Lowe of Grantland is one of the NBA's best writers ... and a big fan of Croatian basketball. His wife is Croatian and he visits the country every summer.
