Meanwhile, Prokhorov apparently made a great impression with the league this week.

After another successful draw to the Prudential Center last night, the Nets are seriously considering setting up a temporary home there starting next season as they wait for Brooklyn to happen. The one caveat is whether or not they can break their lease at the Izod Center without a stiff penalty.
