It’s baaaaaack. The Brooklyn Nets have their first preseason game TONIGHT, as they host Turkish club Fenerbahce Ulker at Barclays Center.
This will be the only Nets preseason game against a non-NBA team this season (schedule here), but that doesn’t mean Ulker doesn’t have NBA talent. The team boasts four former NBA players: Pero Antic, Luigi Datome, Ekpe Udoh, and Jan Vesely, as well as Phoenix Suns draftee Bogdan Bogdanovic (no relation to Bojan Bogdanovic). It’s not clear who will play, though — Antic has missed recent games with an ankle injury.
They also tried the baklava, as one does when they visit another country.

The Nets have some ties to Fenerbahce: Bojan Bogdanovic (remember, not Bogdan) played the majority of his European career with the club, leading them in scoring for three consecutive seasons before joining the Nets.
The unfortunate part: if you’re not in the arena, you won’t be able to see it. The game will not be televised, nor will there be a radio broadcast. You can follow us on Twitter @TheBKGame, and me at @uuords, if you want live updates. We may also have some live updating on the site itself, though no guarantees on that just yet.
