The first Brooklyn Nets training camp under new head coach Jason Kidd will be held at Duke University, the alma mater of general manager Billy King and rookie Mason Plumlee, from October 1-5.
Yes, Training camp is at Duke this year!

The Nets want to limit media exposure during their training camp, wanting the team to focus only on basketball. Good luck with that.
“With many new players and a new staff, going on the road for training camp will offer a unique opportunity for our players to bond and focus solely on basketball as they prepare for this season.” Billy King said in a prepared statement. “Duke University offers first class basketball facilities and will provide an optimum training environment for our team.”
The Nets host media day on September 30th in Brooklyn, and will travel to training camp directly after.
