The Brooklyn Nets will host a press conference on June 26th to unveil their plans for the future practice facility in Brooklyn, in the Sunset Park neighborhood at 11 AM, the team announced today.
General Manager Billy King, Coach Jason Kidd, Mason Plumlee, CEO Brett Yormark, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and New York City Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen are all expected to attend.
The Industry City facility is expected to cost upwards of $40 million. Via NetsDaily:
The building, part of the 16-building Industry City complex off 39th Street in Brooklyn, will house the practice facility and team offices on the top floor of the building and perhaps later, a team store on first floor. To accommodate the needs of the team, the Nets will raise the roof by 15 to 20 feet and the property owners will make significant improvements to the entire building. The building is likely to be ready for the 2015-16 season.
