Kenny Atkinson will dive into his first head coaching job with the Nets as soon as the Hawks season concludes, but he’ll have at least one former head coach on his bench with him.
It’s hard to imagine anyone from the Nets headed to Toronto for the All-Star Game, but at least one player will make the trip up for a secondary challenge. Second-year guard Bojan Bogdanovic will join Team World in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge to be held on Friday night of All-Star Weekend, as the […]
(AP) In a shocking move, General Manager Billy King has stepped down and Lionel Hollins has been fired, according to a statement from Mikhail Prokhorov & Nets. Although there had been rumblings that Hollins was certainly out over the summer, Prokhorov, who will be in New York tomorrow, could not wait any longer. Hollins finishes with a […]

Consistency has become elusive for the Brooklyn Nets (7-17) lately after another lackluster performance against the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Done in by poor shooting (38.8 percent), sloppy play (17 turnovers), and non-existent defense (53.9 percent shooting from the Magic), the Nets inevitably fell 105-82 after being outscored 53-37 in the second half. On […]
It at least inspired a solid Chewbacca impersonation: uuuuuugggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh. It’s hardly Shakespeare, but this season is anything but storybook. The Brooklyn Nets are now 7-17 after a 105-82 loss to the Orlando Magic, embarrassed owners of the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference and fourth-worst in the NBA. “Embarrassed” isn’t my editorializing. It’s from the […]
Brook Lopez has a number of accolades in his career. Lottery pick. All-Star center. Multiple-season 20-point scorer. Max contract player. Tonight, he adds another: Star Wars Bobblehead model.

The Nets’ quest for three straight wins for the first time this season fell short Saturday night, despite a fourth-quarter comeback that yielded 37 points.
