Woj: Kenny Atkinson key to making D’Angelo Russell work

In a podcast that aired Wednesday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony of Draft Express praised the Nets’ acquisition of D’Angelo Russell from the Lakers, adding the key to the deal is Kenny Atkinson’s development skills. Woj said the Nets had been “tracking [Russell] for some time” and that “the Nets talked with Atlanta throughout the day (about another salary dump) and over the last couple of days with the Lakers. Both deals going back and forth” until an agreement was reached that afternoon with L.A. The Nets sent Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in Thursday’s...

NBA Draft 2017: Where to watch, what to watch, who to watch

NBA Draft 2017: Where to watch, what to watch, who to watch

The 2017 NBA Draft is tonight, and while the Nets have already made a major splash prior to the draft, in trading Brook Lopez to the Lakers in a deal that includes D’Angelo Russell, there is still plenty to keep an eye on at tonight’s draft. A little housekeeping, while I have you. We’ll be LIVE at the Nets’ practice facility with our guy Dexter Henry and Bryan Fonseca hosting a Facebook Live video with full reporting. Make sure to follow us on Facebook to find the live video. We’ll share the link, too, when it’s live. Anthony Puccio will be at the Barclays Center reporting...

Did Nets promise D.J. Wilson? And is promise still good?

Did Nets promise D.J. Wilson? And is promise still good?

In his latest mock draft, published about 8 a.m., Chad Ford writes that the Nets may have made a promise to 6’11” Michigan power forward D.J. Wilson. The word around the NBA is that the Nets promised Wilson they'd take him. Whether that was at No. 27 (the pick they traded to the Lakers this week) or here is unclear. Given that they just traded Brook Lopez (and because Timofey Mozgov is ... unreliable), a center like Bradley or Pasecniks makes sense here. However, Wilson could become a stretch-4 who pairs nicely with D'Angelo Russell. Don't count out Ferguson here, either. The Nets have...

2017 NetsDaily Draft Roundtable - The Pre-DLoading Edition

Alas, this year, we called for answers too early. A lot of our writers turned in their responses to Reed Wallach’s questions before the Nets traded Brook Lopez and the 27th pick for D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov. So take a look knowing that we didn’t know but knowing there’s still some wisdom, we hope, that can be derived. Everything changes on Draft Night, but this year, everything changed two days before. 1. What is the biggest need for the Nets to address in the Draft? Net Income: Shooters. If you're running a motion offense predicated on open shots, you need...

Nets likely to target one of these big men with No. 22 pick

Nets general manager Sean Marks has talked about being strategic in Brooklyn’s rebuild and flexible going into Thursday’s draft. He was both in Tuesday’s shrewd trade, and will have to be both again Thursday night at Barclays Center. Though dealing Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick for building block D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov...

Losing D’Angelo Russell hurts, but Brook Lopez can bring value to the Lakers

Losing D’Angelo Russell hurts, but Brook Lopez can bring value to the Lakers

Despite the uproar over his acquisition, the big man can help Los Angeles. In case you’ve been living under a rock and missed it, the Los Angeles Lakers traded point guard D’Angelo Russell in a salary dump to the Brooklyn Nets for the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and Brook Lopez. While it remains to be seen whether the Lakers will actually use their picks by the time they are on the clock, Lopez will almost certainly be on LA’s opening day roster. No, the Lakers did not bring in Lopez to get eviscerated by Larry Nance, Jr. in practices (Editor’s Note: That does NOT mean...

The Warriors ruined the NBA by inducing everyone to panic trade in a frenzy

The NBA is weird right now. We are one day out from the 2017 NBA Draft. Already, there has been a slew of activity. Trades are either being executed or rumored all across this great swath of NBA landscape. Players are shaking their shaved heads in the general direction of owners who are making strange decisions wrought in real time Comic Sans. in other words, things are weird right now. A small sampling: The Lakers gave up on 21-year-old D’Angello Russell, dumping him alongside Timofey Mozgov to the Nets in exchange for Brook Lopez (on an expiring contract) and a low first round pick...

NBA Rumors: Jeremy Lin Leaving Brooklyn Nets Next Summer Because Of D’Angelo Russell?

Jeremy Lin will have new teammates next season after the Brooklyn Nets acquired D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov from the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nets traded away All-Star center Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft. The latest NBA rumors suggest that Lin and Russell can co-exist but the former could be on his way out of Brooklyn next offseason. ESPN reported that Lakers and Nets agreed on the trade on Tuesday and it will become official at the 2017 NBA Draft. The Lakers are expected to draft Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick while also having $60...

Without Brook Lopez, it’s a new chapter for the Brooklyn Nets

From New Jersey to Brooklyn. East Rutherford to Newark to Brooklyn. Brook Lopez’s loyalty shouldn’t go unnoticed It finally happened. No more “Big Disney” jokes. No more goofing around with his brother, Robin. No more “you know’s” in interviews. No more posing with kids half his size. No, no more loyalty either. It’s a business. And no one knew that better than Brook Lopez. After nine seasons with the team and countless trade rumors, Brook Lopez has finally been traded. He had nine different coaches, three GM’s. He played in two states, three cities, three arenas and...

Trading Frenzy Begins

Trading Frenzy Begins

The NBA has begun the crazy offseason Welp. It’s happening. Two trades went down yesterday, both of which were unexpected. Meanwhile, the trade rumors are flying all over the place as teams are angling for position in the draft and getting themselves prepared for this upcoming free agency as well as those in the future. The craziness yesterday centered around three big names, Paul George, Jimmy Butler, and, unexpectedly, Kristaps Porzingis. But let’s first break down what actually happened. Lakers-Nets trade Lakers are trading Tim Mozgov and D'Angelo Russell to Nets for Brook Lopez...

The other guy: How the 7’1” addition is a (bit of) new NBA center

By the way, the Brooklyn Nets also added Timofey Mozgov in that D’Angelo Russell trade, at the cost of finally parting ways with Brook Lopez (wow, that sounds weird) and the No. 27 overall draft choice Thursday night. Wipe your tears, ladies and gentlemen, it was for the best… So what do we know about Timofey Mozgov, the big Russian whose name translates into “Timmy Brains.” No, really. It does. He’s 31 years old, a native of Russia’s second city, St. Petersburg, and a former New York Knick, Denver Nugget, Cleveland Cavalier, and Los Angeles Laker, who the Nets will have pay...

Post-Lopez Era: A brief first look at where the Nets stand

With Lopez gone, what does this mean for the Nets going forward? Brook Lopez is gone and now things start to happen. Trading him for D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov is Sean Marks’ biggest move since becoming GM. The trade portends a few things for the Nets this offseason ... and future. D’Angelo Russell is the point guard of the future for the Brooklyn Nets. Jeremy Lin has only one year left on his deal before he can opt out of his three year, $36 million deal. It’s a given he will. It seems unlikely that the Nets would trade Lin, but they’re certainly preparing for life...
