Farewell, Trevor Booker and Sean Kilpatrick

Farewell, Trevor Booker and Sean Kilpatrick

Sean Kilpatrick was Sean Marks’ first acquisition when he took over as GM of the Nets. Trevor Booker was Marks’ second off-season pickup as GM, right after Jeremy Lin. Less than two seasons later, both are gone. Each served their role in Brooklyn. Booker was signed to provide energy and leadership on a two-year, $18 million contract. He was that and more. Kilpatrick turned 10-day contract into a multi-year extension and became a sparkplug off the bench, someone who once said he could roll out of bed and score 10 points. Both helped set the groundwork for a culture they were a part of...

Kenny Atkinson’s taste put to the test ... again

Kenny Atkinson’s taste put to the test ... again

Ever since Jeremy Lin went down with a ruptured patellar tendon on Opening Night, Kenny Atkinson has been forced to experiment. His lineups read like a menu at a restaurant that’s constantly running out of entrees’. “Sorry, sir, we’re out of that.” Injuries have taken their toll and surprisingly, because of the Nets development and performance staffs, the Nets survive. Now comes Jahlil Okafor and Nik Stauskas and out goes Trevor Booker and Sean Kilpatrick. Meanwhile, suddenly, Caris LeVert is looking more and more like a point guard and a very good one. So, Atkinson is...

Atkinson provides Lin update, including why he’s in Vancouver

Atkinson provides Lin update, including why he’s in Vancouver

The Nets decision to send Jeremy Lin to a British Columbia sports institute for a season-long rehab was “collaborative,” Kenny Atkinson told reporters Friday afternoon. “It’s was a collaborative effort from Sean (Marks) and I, our performance team, and the group in Vancouver – plus Jeremy’s group too,” Atkinson said after practice on Friday afternoon. “It was a collaborative decision. We are monitoring it and we just want everyone to make sure that we are on top of it daily, in contact with the people in Vancouver. The coaches are in contact with Jeremy, I’m in contact...

Lin, Nets decide on season-long rehab program “to rebuild my body from the ground up”

Lin, Nets decide on season-long rehab program “to rebuild my body from the ground up”

In an Instagram message posted Thursday afternoon, Jeremy Lin announced that he will spend most of the season at a suburban Vancouver sports training institute, hoping to “rebuild my body from the ground up.” The short video showed Lin at the institute, Fortius Sport & Health in Burnaby, B.C. Fortius describes itself as “an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.” Steve Nash has played a role in developing some of its programs. Life Update!! Did I really say “congrats on the boys” smh...

Harden, Rockets roll through depleted Nets, 117-103

Harden, Rockets roll through depleted Nets, 117-103

They battled. Heading into the game, the Nets announced that D’Angelo Russell (knee), Allen Crabbe (sore lower back), Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (sprained ankle) and DeMarre Carroll (upper respiratory) would all sit out, along with the already absent Jeremy Lin. That was the story going into the game. The story coming out is about Brooklyn’s 13th loss following a, 117-103, defeat at Houston. They fought, despite the circumstances, as they have all season. It’s just tough for the Nets to gain any momentum or continuity with the current injury bug they’re facing. They captured a...

Nets rally in the second half and snap 3-game losing streak, 98-88

Nets rally in the second half and snap 3-game losing streak, 98-88

Gather around. It’s time for another story about ‘Brooklyn Grit.’ The Nets entered this game against Memphis having lost three straight games, while missing Jeremy Lin, D’Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe due to injury. In the second quarter, they lost Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to a right ankle sprain. Things looked tough to begin with and they were only looking tougher. And yet, they fought and handed Memphis its eighth straight loss, 98-88, Sunday night in Memphis. This game got off to perhaps one of the ugliest starts of Brooklyn’s season. Memphis forced them to play a slow,...

Jeremy Lin: “I can bend my knee now” ... “Recovery is very good”

Jeremy Lin: “I can bend my knee now” ... “Recovery is very good”

In a Chinese language interview Wednesday morning on Weibo, the big Chinese social media platform, Jeremy Lin said that he can finally bend his right knee, a month after he ruptured his patellar tendon in Opening Night. But he said he’s not yet ready to return to the Nets bench out of fear that a player could fall on his knee, still in a brace. Interviewed alongside his brother and one-year-old nephew at his Brooklyn apartment, Lin spoke first about his injury. @JLin7 said on the recovery of his knee injury.

Trevor Booker day-to-day. So what does it mean?

Trevor Booker day-to-day. So what does it mean?

Trevor Booker didn’t practice on Tuesday, and is out with a sprained left ankle, which Kenny Atkinson calls ‘day-to-day.’ The Brooklyn Nets have had plenty of injuries, nagging ‘day-to-day’ style ones as well as the devastating Sports Center types. Booker in fact has already been hit with one of those annoyances already, and the Nets, particularly in the frontcourt, have been weakened as a result. Sure, the backcourt lost their two best players in D’Angelo Russell and Jeremy Lin, but with the way Spencer Dinwiddie is producing along with the depth at wing, the situation...

Deadlines and Commitments - No. 107

Deadlines and Commitments - No. 107

It’s all about injuries and we can’t tell you when D’Angelo Russell will be back. So don’t expect to find that date here. We know that Jeremy Lin won’t be back, but he does have a decision in June on his player option for 2018-19. A lot of international dates coming up soon, including FIBA play for one of the Nets stashes and the Nets trip to Mexico City. Note as well the deadlines for the Lin Disabled Player Exception. Also, the trade deadline is now a week before All-Star break, not a few days after. Traded players get time off during the All-Star break to move! Here ya...

With Russell down, Marks “probably” will seek DPE ... for Lin.

With Russell down, Marks “probably” will seek DPE ... for Lin.

In talking about D’Angelo Russell’s surgery Friday, Sean Marks said there’s “probably a pretty good chance" Brooklyn will now apply for a disabled player exception ... for Jeremy Lin. The Nets haven’t yet applied for the DPE which could give them up to $6 million in additional cap space. A DPE is only awarded for a player who’s out for the season. So the Nets can only apply for Lin, not Russell, who the team does expect back after arthroscopic knee surgery. Once the Nets apply for the DPE, the NBA will review Lin’s medical records and likely award the exception. The...
