NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

For Brook Lopez, culture and character more than just talk

We all know about culture and character, the two words Sean Marks and his coach, Kenny Atkinson focus on. They are the defining strategy of the Nets rebuild.  But as Brook Lopez tells Fred Kerber, it's not just words. "It’s abnormal," he told Kerber. "It’s a good feeling. I know they’ve been harping on the culture and all but it’s a completely unique feel this time, like...

Bobby Marks: Brooklyn Nets stay flexible, likely to be active in trade market

Bobby Marks takes an extended look at the Nets, both for this year and in future and thinks the Nets are looking at  an active trade season this year and more big free agent risks next summer. The key, says the former Nets assistant GM, is that after the Nets lost out on Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson, they decided not to go for broke and fill the roster with big deals. "Often...

Brooklyn Nets Can’t Afford to Stop Being Creative

If you’re in the business of winning, the Brooklyn Nets are not a smart investment – at least not yet.  This team has been dealt an incredibly bad hand by Billy King and Mikhail Prokhorov. However, smart management in the past year has given Brooklyn fans a glimmer of hope for the future. This is quite an accomplishment considering the circumstances. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson...

Jeremy Lin reportedly looking to trademark phrase ‘Brook-Lin’

In just 35 games with the New York Knicks a few seasons ago, Jeremy Lin basically became his own brand. The term “Linsanity” was born almost immediately, and the undrafted player out of Harvard was not prepared for it. That won’t be an issue in Brooklyn. Lin, who signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Nets this offseason, has already submitted an application to trademark...

Brooklyn Nets: Jeremy Lin buying into Nets’ rebuild

When Jeremy Lin signed a three year, 36 million dollar contract to play for the Brooklyn Nets, it left many wondering why he didn’t demand more money. When Allen Crabbe is getting $75 million, Lin easily could have gotten more. But, Jeremy Lin has shown that he is here to be part of a rebuild, and to develop both as a man and as a player. Money was not the answer for Lin, as he...

Brooklyn Nets heading in right direction, despite matched offer sheets to Crabbe, Johnson

Sean Marks had one of the tallest tasks of the offseason, taking over as general manager of the Brooklyn Nets. The former Spurs assistant GM joined an entirely different situation. The Nets didn’t have top draft picks (the previous regime mortgaged the future for short term gain) and outside of Brook Lopez, the returning roster didn’t offer much.

Nets are proving you can tank without picks

There was never a right way for Sean Marks to rebuild the Nets. He took over a team with worse current players than just about anyone else, but without his own draft picks until 2019 traditional rebuilding flew out the window as well. A lesser GM would’ve made a bunch of high-risk moves trying to win now. And yes, Derrick Rose was available and there were attainable potential...
