Deron Williams will make his return to Brooklyn for the first time since agreeing to a buyout with the team this past offseason on Wednesday, now as a third banana on the Dallas Mavericks.
We’re looking back at the series of major decisions that led to the current state of the Nets, and asking you: if you could go back, would you do it again?
These will come in (mostly) reverse chronological order. Today, we cover the coaching carousel, looking at who’s had a shot with the Nets.
The Brooklyn Nets are no stranger to December changeups. Avery Johnson was fired in their first December in the borough, following a 14-14 start to the 2012-13 season. Jason Kidd assigned Lawrence Frank to “daily reports” nearly one year later on December 4th, 2013, roughly around the time Nets management reportedly considered firing him. ‘Tis […]

Since the Nets jumped the river and landed in […]
The Brooklyn Nets (4-7) enter Friday night’s game in Oklahoma City against the Thunder on a demoralizing five-game losing streak, which by now everyone knows has followed Joe Johnson’s notorious “selfish” comments.

Since 1976, the last pick in the NFL draft has been referred to — with tongue firmly planted in cheek — as “Mr. Irrelevant.” The dubious honor even comes with some hardware, “The Lowsman Trophy,” a play on the Heisman with the player fumbling a football. The NBA’s version of Mr. Irrelevant has changed quite […]
It was much more a press conference than it was a celebration. The remnants of the past season were still there: “HELLO COACH!” stuck around as the mantra, and Barclays Center’s oculus sported an enormous picture of Lionel Hollins, the new Brooklyn Nets head coach. But the welcoming was media-only and occurred in the interview […]
Mirza Teletovic is being used by other European NBA players as an example of second-year success. Luigi Datome of the Detroit Pistons told Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press that “recently I saw Mirza Teletovic of the Brooklyn Nets, first year was kind of brutal, but last season was like a good player for […]
