Nets on the Net: 10/7/10

Lawrence Frank, an assistant for Boston, returns to New Jersey tonight.

Newark native Shaquille O’Neal: “I would have liked to see the new owner get with the guy who built the arena and keep the Nets there,” O’Neal said during an exclusive phone interview. “I don’t want to see the team go to Brooklyn. Maybe the two heads can get together, they can do that and I can come down there and become general manager.

Terrence Williams is buying into Mikhail Prokhorov: “Our owner [Mikhail Prokhorov] said he’s gonna make Knicks fans become Nets fans, so I’m riding with him until the wheels fall off,” Williams said. “I kind of see us being in the shadow because they’re more established, but the way we’re going and how we’re playing, as far as getting better and the coach we got, we’ll be out of that shadow.

TWill also took the train from Penn Station to the Rock.

The Nets have waived Eddie Gill. Their roster is now down to 16.

Are the Nuggets still asking for too much for Carmelo Anthony?
