NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Transition period begins for Nets overseas import Bogdanovic

The Nets may have a team full of big names familiar to NBA fans, but perhaps the most intriguing player on the roster is one few people here ever have seen play. That would be Bojan Bogdanovic, the 6-foot-8 swingman who the Nets took with the first pick of the second round in 2011 — only for him to spend the next three years playing for Fenerbahce Ulker, one of Europe’s top...

Joe Johnson: Nets can be serious contenders

A year ago, the Nets entered training camp with plenty of championship talk surrounding the franchise after hiring Jason Kidd as coach and acquiring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Andrei Kirilenko during the offseason. But after last season’s rough start, eventual loss in the second round to the Heat and the offseason departures of Kidd and Pierce, the Nets enter this season...

Kobe Bryant, Deron Williams engage in war of words

It is no secret Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets has not been all that great in the past few seasons. He was consistently one of the few best point guards in the NBA throughout his time in Utah, and after a decent start with New Jersey/Brooklyn, injuries have claimed a lot of his productivity. So it is imperative that the 2014-15 season is a good one for Deron, who has to prove...

Nets Deron Williams responds to Kobe Bryant shooting critique

Kobe Bryant has always been extremely outspoken. Over the summer in a feature on the black mamba in Sports Illustrated, Bryant referenced Deron Williams’ 0-9 game against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. It was the worst shooting performance of Williams’ career. Bryant said Williams, who dealt with ankle injuries all of last season...

Nets Injury Update: Andrei Kirilenko out at least a week with back tightness

The Brooklyn Nets entered training camp coming off a 44-win season last year and a first round upset of the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference playoffs. In order to continue their rise in the conference, the Nets must improve on an offense that was 21st in the league in scoring, and also improve their rebounding, which ranked 29th in the league. One player who figures to...

Deron Williams on Kobe’s 0-9 Comments: I’m a F**king PG

  Ok, so let’s take a little step back here so those who missed Kobe’s initial comments can catch up. A month ago we did a story on Kobe Bryant taking a not so subtle jab at Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams. This is what he said… Gotham Chopra, the director of “Kobe Bryant’s Muse”, an upcoming documentary on Bryant, told a story about being with Kobe and watching...

Brooklyn Nets hope Lionel Hollins is the finally “the right voice” to lead the team

  During the NBA offseason, the Brooklyn Nets were blindsided by Jason Kidd’s brazen ploy for more power within the organization; a move that resulted in him accepting a head coaching position with the Milwaukee Bucks.  One year after the Nets made a huge media splash by hiring the neophyte, Kidd’s sudden departure returned the Nets to where they were a year ago, without a...

Garnett admits he thought about retirement

If Kevin Garnett had decided to retire after last season, few would have been shocked to hear the news. After the worst season of his career and a disappointing playoff elimination for the Brooklyn Nets, it would have been understandable for Garnett to want to throw in the towel, especially after longtime teammate Paul Pierce chose to depart for the Washington Wizards in his free...

The Brooklyn Nets have reached a buyout agreement with assistant coach Lawrence Frank, according to multiple reports. Frank was demoted to "writing daily reports" by Nets former head coach Jason Kidd last season and wasn't named to the staff of the team's current head coach Lionel Hollins.
