Though the Brooklyn Nets have played at Barclays Center for the last two years, the team still practices in its facility in Rutherford, which has kept most of the team’s roster and personnel in New Jersey and Manhattan. But according to the New York Post, Joe Johnson might buck that trend, looking at a two-bedroom condo in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood:
Johnson looked at a $9,500-a-month two-bedroom unit — which sports 11-foot-high ceilings and hardwood flooring — at the Clocktower Building in DUMBO.
The gourmet kitchen features a Sub-Zero fridge, Thermador oven and Bosch dishwasher.
The building, at 1 Main St., is where Anne Hathaway just sold her $4.25 million, 2,592-square-foot unit. Johnson’s broker, Jon Epstein of Corcoran, declined to comment.
There are three yoga studious within walking distance of 1 Main St., which could tip the scales for Johnson, who has long been the Nets player who would adjust best to Brooklyn.
