Around the Nets: Monday Edition

  • Former Nets Center Dwayne Schintzius has passed away at the age of 43.

  • Mikhail Prokhorov wants to be clear on this subject: Kanye West’s diss on “Theraflu” at Kris Humphries has no basis in fact, and Prokhorov will support Kris in what he calls an “epic battle.”

  • Doc Rivers hardly recognizes Gerald Green.
  • That said, Green remembers the Celtics well, and though his preference is to re-sign with the Nets, one Celtics columnist reported that he wouldn’t rule out returning to Boston.

  • One additional bonus from the Gerald Wallace trade: Shawne Williams, whose short stint in New Jersey was essentially a failure, is picking up his option for 2012-13 in Portland. That’s $3.1 million.

  • Tonight, you’ll see at least 30 very excited fans in the arena for Nets-Heat (well, hopefully more). Those are thanks to Anthony Morrow, who donated 30 tickets to youth in the Children for Cultural Differences program.

  • You’ll never guess what sport Jordan Williams gave up to play basketball.
