At training camp today, Al Iannazzone looks at Terrence Williams and what position he might play. Lawrence Frank has him playing a little point guard, though that’s a role he’ll likely be eased into when needed. Meanwhile, Dave D. notes what many of us have noted, Yi, after a productive summer, looks more athletic, aggressive, and most importantly, confident. Julian Garcia at the Daily News jokingly compares Yi to Bruce Springsteen, whose performing some shows at Giant Stadium you might have heard about (I’ll be there tomorrow). Fred Kerber talks to CDR about the NBA’s new Twitter policy. Doulgas-Roberts is not concerned by the restrictions.

Al Iannazzone talks with Devin Harris about two pressing issues facing the Nets and the NBA – replacement refs and the sale of the team to Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. On the ref issue, Harris jokes, “As long as they’re calling fouls, I’m good with that.” As for the prospective Nets owner, “And from what I hear, the way he constructed his Russian team, he spent money to win. And I hope that’s the approach he’ll take here. But it’s not something that’s in stone, so we can’t worry about it.”
Courtney Lee talks with Dave D’Alessandro some more about the initial “shock” of the trade and he understands that the Nets “wanted me.”
