Around the Nets Thursday: First jersey leak?

  • Is a toymaker with McFarlane Toys’ NBA figurines the first person to leak the Brooklyn Nets’ new uniforms? Looks to be the case. This jersey on this Deron Williams figurine matches the exact descriptions we’ve been given and aren’t these. This could be a possibility. Stay tuned.
  • Not so fast Donté Greene. After breaking his ankle yesterday, the Nets may have moved on in their backup small forward quest. Fred Kerber reports that names like Josh Childress, Sam Young or Damion James could call Brooklyn home soon. Chris Haynes is also reporting that Derrick Brown could be on the Nets’ list as well.
  • While shooting some photos for Red Bull, Deron Williams decided to play a fan one-on-one at Tillary Park in Brooklyn. Here is some video evidence of the beatdown. Although it was for a photoshoot, I’d like to point out the hilarity of Deron Williams schooling a guy while wearing his own Nets gear.
