Nets on the Net: 10/6/10 Edition

While declining to discuss his apparent rivalry with Bret Yormark, former Nets president Rod Thorn sees good things for his previous team: “They’re going to be better this season,” Thorn said of the Nets, who beat his new team, the 76ers, 103-96, in a preseason game. “They have a lot of talent.”

The Star-Ledger’s Conor Orr catches up with new Net Travis Outlaw, who discusses his transition to the SF position: “The (small forward role) is nice,” Outlaw said. “It’s a lot more exciting than pickin’ and poppin’ and shootin.’ Don’t get me wrong, the ‘4’ is a tough position, but ‘3’ you gotta be a little more active from the weak side, there’s a little bit more to do.”
