Can Jarrett Jack lead the new-look Nets?

The schedule makers weren’t so kind to the Brooklyn Nets, and now the prognosticators are following suit. Many are predicting a season of doom and gloom, which will result in a gift-wrapped lottery pick delivered to Danny Ainge’s Boston Celtics office. Four-fifths of the Nets’ starting lineup will return this season, which is a positive […]

Brooklyn Nets 2015 Free Agency Primer

The 2015 NBA Free Agency period, AKA the most wonderful time of year for basketball without basketball, kicks off at midnight on Wednesday, July 1.

Nets waive Darius Morris

The Brooklyn Nets requested waivers on backup point guard Darius Morris today. With Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack, and Steve Blake all on the roster, Morris’s non-guaranteed deal became expendable.

Where they stand: At 22-31, the Nets […]

Improved shooting, ball control to thank for latest Nets success

The Nets hit their lowest point two weekends ago, with back-to-back losses by a combined 74 points to the Los Angeles Clippers & Utah Jazz. Since that time, they embarked on what looked like a brutal stretch of games. But the Nets have been competitive in all four games, even winning the last two: the […]

Tough challenges keep coming as Nets host Toronto Raptors

The Nets (18-27) played a fluid 48 minutes against the Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Hawks (38-8) on Wednesday, and still could not withstand enough offensive runs in the second half to propel them to victory. A noticeably energized Joe Johnson scored 26 points against his former team, the most he has tallied in over a […]

Nets to begin difficult stretch against Trail Blazers… if they play at all

UPDATE: Weather did not permit. After an embarrassing three-game road trip that saw them lose the last two games by combined total of 74 points, the Nets (18-26) are back home in Brooklyn. If weather permits — a dicey proposition at this point — they’ll play the Northwest Division-leading Portland Trailblazers (31-13). Two brutal losses […]
