Nets rank 8th in SB Nation preseason rankings

There is a few things in the sports world that we give grades to, that drive me nuts. Post-draft grades are number one. Preseason rankings are number two.

WOJ: Nets sign Alan Anderson

The Nets, who apparently stole Entertainment 720’s money printing machine, have signed G/F Alan Anderson to a two-year deal worth an, as of right now, unknown amount of money.
