Jeremy Lin: With some luck, Nets could make playoffs

Jeremy Lin thinks with some good health and good free agent recruiting effort, the Nets could go from the worst team in the NBA to the playoffs. “I feel we can get into the playoffs . . . I only played [24.5] minutes a game this year. If I could play more, or if I didn’t get injured, I feel we have a chance of getting into the playoffs,” Lin told JD.com a week ago. It’s...

Nets know free agent they want but have to outbid these teams

The NBA playoffs are down to four teams, but it was the Euroleague semifinals on Nets general manager Sean Marks’ mind. The Nets scouted Milos Teodosic for at least the fourth time this season, a clear sign the Serbian point guard is the team’s top free-agent priority. Marks traveled to Russia twice to watch Teodosic...

Brooklyn Nets: Is Jeremy Lin the answer at point guard?

This season has been a season to forget for Brooklyn Nets fans. Long gone are the days of Jason Kidd leading the then New Jersey Nets on deep playoff runs, and more recently, an aging Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce bringing toughness to a Brooklyn Nets team that wanted to establish dominance in the New York market. Nowadays, the Nets resemble a D-League team. Not even an avid NBA...

Brooklyn Nets: What if the Nets had the first overall pick?

Remember when it seemed like the Brooklyn Nets were going to challenge the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference? Remember when the acquisition of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry was going to turn the Nets into a title contender? Yeah, well, we all know how that one turned out. Arguably the worst trade in NBA history is coming back to haunt the Nets wants again as the...

Will Nets as well as Knicks have players on Team Latvia?

The Latvian national team is shaping up nicely as the FIBA European championships approach. There’s Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks star, to anchor the club in the competition. And two European players, both of whom the Nets have scouted (at a high level), will also be on the roster. Rodions Kurucs, a 6’9” small forward, and Anzejs Pasecniks, a 7’2” center, were scouted...

Nets scouting Latvian ‘baby’ in mold of Bojan Bogdanovic

The Nets traded small forward Bojan Bogdanovic at February’s deadline, and they have been scouting wings ever since. Last month, general manager Sean Marks admitted the position, on a roster riddled with holes, is the biggest one the Nets must fix. Though they will eye pricey free agents Otto Porter and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the Nets...

Nets get the worst possible result to a deal they already lost

When the Nets made their infamous trade with the Celtics in 2013, team owner Mikhail Prokhorov said “the basketball gods smiled on” his team. It turns out they actually were laughing at the Nets, and the punch line was Boston winning Tuesday’s NBA lottery and getting the top overall pick at Brooklyn’s expense. One of...

Brooklyn Nets: Who to target

The Brooklyn Nets come into the offseason with nearly $30 million in cap space and plenty of holes to fill. One thing that can be learned by watching the postseason is that there is a clear power balance at the top of both conferences. The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers seem destined to face each other again for a third straight year in the NBA finals. With this...

Resting players is a major topic in the NBA right now and former commissioner David Stern has finally weighed in on the matter.In some ways, resting players is part of a playoff team’s strategy down the stretch and a byproduct of the NBA’s brutal schedule. Teams want to win titles and entering the playoffs well-rested can help.But for teams out of the running there is little...

Kevin Garnett: “I’m not a host, bro. I’m not going to be able to get through tag lines.”

Plenty of former athletes have gone into broadcasting, but most frequently in the well-defined traditional roles of color commentators or studio analysts. We’re starting to see more unusual spins on that, though, and one of the most interesting may be what Turner Sports is doing with Kevin Garnett. Rather than put Garnett on their Inside the NBA panel or assign him to color commentary...

For the Nets, what a difference a year made

Real-life people were heard chanting “Brooklyn, Brooooooklyn” at a NBA game recently.  Not at the Barclays Center though, which, more often than not, has hosted the chants of the opposing teams temporarily taking residence in its minimalist walls.

Finding reasons for optimism in Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Nets are nearly a lock to earn the infamous "worst team of the year" title. With future franchise-rebuilding assets headed up the coast to a division rival and a roster barren of talent, this Nets club has little appeal -- just a poorly run team reaping what they sowed (or more fittingly, forgot to). Those Nets knew this was going to be the start of multiple year slog...
