Wiz hire extra security for tonight, Lopez an All-Star? Shootaround

Some Nets news and notes from around the web:

  • The Washington Wizards may have hired extra security to protect former exiled Wizards forward and current Nets backup center Andray Blatche. Blatche has roundly criticized the Wizards franchise for not giving him support, while Wizards fans are expected to roundly boo Blatche for underperforming after signing a three-year contract worth $28 million.

  • Stefan Bondy’s not the first to say it but I’m sure he won’t be the last, either: Brook Lopez is having an All-Star season.

  • P.J. Carlesimo is getting good reviews from one Nets shooting guard.
  • Some renderings of what the modular housing towers behind Barclays Center will look like. I can see the Lego influence.
