How’d We Get Here: K.J. McDaniels Last Thursday, the Brooklyn Nets acquired K.J. McDaniels in a trade with the Houston Rockets. McDaniels was acquired at essentially no long-term cost, with the Nets giving up the minimum cash consideration, $75,000, for the third-year swingman.

Analyzing the Nets’ Offensive Woes Previously, I deconstructed Kenny Atkinson’s offensive system and influences in his first season as the Brooklyn Nets’ head coach. When it’s run successfully, it’s a system that gets everyone involved and works for open looks from the perimeter and easy buckets at the rim. The Atlanta Hawks, under Mike Budenholzer, have […]

by Simon Harrex Believe it or not, we’re less than forty days away from the newest NBA season. While the days of the Golden State Warriors’ epic collapse at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are now in the rear-view mirror, it’s never too early to start thinking ahead. Naturally, the Brooklyn Nets […]

The Brooklyn Nets (0-4) continued their early season funk on Monday, losing to Milwaukee at home 103-96.

Before free agency even began, there were rumors that Jason Kidd would try to snare Brook Lopez from the Brooklyn Nets. But Lopez, sitting in Barclays Center shortly after signing a three-year maximum deal, said it was little more than a brief conversation between a former coach & player, and at the end of the […]

Should the Nets start Jarrett Jack over Deron Williams?

How uninspiring play from Deron Williams (left) could open the door for Brooklyn’s backup point guard.

A year ago, with a sense that the series was slipping away, Jason Kidd made a bold decision and replaced Shaun Livingston with Alan Anderson in the starting lineup. That move changed the complexion of the series against Toronto. Heading into a pivotal Game 3, perhaps it’s time for Lionel Hollins to make a bold […]

ATLANTA, GA. — It was fitting that the game’s deciding possession, in front of a raucous sellout crowd of 18,440 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, was a battle between the ghosts of Atlanta Hawks past and present. With the Brooklyn Nets down 97-92 and a potential upset slipping away, Thaddeus Young inbounded the ball to […]

After a regular season sweep, Lionel Hollins held no illusions. “I don’t think we have any advantages over the Hawks,” Hollins said of his eighth-seeded, 38-44 Brooklyn Nets on a conference call Thursday. “That’s why they’re 60-22 and that’s why we’re where we are.” Sunday afternoon kicks off the third straight year in the playoffs […]
