Around the Nets: Friday Edition
  • After looking like a lock to make the playoffs, the Houston Rockets have dropped six straight games, falling to tenth in the Western Conference below teams two teams — Phoenix and Utah — that hold tiebreakers in playoff races. The Nets went from two picks in a loaded draft to most likely none awful fast.

  • The only certainties at this point for next fall? Barring a trade, the Nets will employ Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro, MarShon Brooks, Jordan Williams, and the Miami Heat’s 2012 second-round pick. In Brooklyn. Everything else is up for grabs.

  • Anthony Morrow feels blessed to be a part of Brooklyn, a “huge part of history.”
  • The guys over at CelticsBlog are happy for Gerald Green.
  • Could the Barclays Center host the All-Star game soon?

  • In what could have easily been Nets news (and still could be), Dwight Howard will miss the remainder of the season and playoffs after undergoing back surgery. Some old trade news reaffirmed by Howard himself in that link, too. One writer thinks that Howard’s injury can only mean good things for Brooklyn.

  • Devin Harris is experiencing a rebirth in Utah. The Jazz are likely playoff-bound.
