Bigger role, on and off court, for Randy Foye

With Greivis Vasquez's return uncertain -- in last month's statements, neither he nor Sean Marks committed to his being ready for training camp, expect Randy Foye to get minutes as back-up point guard this season.  Can he do it? "Randy is a proven veteran in this league," Kenny Atkinson said at the Nets’ introductory press conference in July. "Me and [general manager] Sean [Marks] were thrilled when we had the chance to get him. He can play both positions – the 2 and the 1 – great character fit, great system fit for our team." One of the last players signed this summer, Foye has been...

Randy Foye: Sean Marks sold me on the Brooklyn Nets culture

There's that word again... Randy Foye says he could probably have waited and got a better deal , but he tells Stefan Bondy that he liked what he heard around the Nets new culture from Sean Marks. "It was other options where I could’ve signed. Was tempted to wait a little longer (before signing a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Nets), but just from talking to Sean and just from coming from an organization like OKC, just the vision, just everything was so positive. Not that other teams weren’t. But it was just so positive, "And there was more talk about building a culture. A lot of...

How about the bench? Nope, CBS says they're the worst

The hits just keep on coming.  After Kevin Pelton predicted the Nets wouldn't win 20 and his colleague, Bradford Doolittle, said no, think 16, CBS Sports ranked the Nets starters 29th, ahead of only Philadelphia. Now, the same pundits think the Nets bench is the worst in the NBA. Here's their take... PROJECTED BENCH: Greivis Vasquez, Randy Foye, Sean Kilpatrick, Trevor Booker, Justin Hamilton The good news: Brooklyn has almost completely transformed its roster after its dismal 2015-16 season. The bad news: There still isn't much depth here. In addition to the guys listed above, there...

Yogi Ferrell on making the Nets: "you have to have a basketball IQ"

Yogi Ferrell realizes making the Nets final, 12-man roster won't be easy. While he has a $100,000 guarantee, the Nets have 15 players with full guarantees ... and five of them can play point guard: Jeremy Lin, Greivis Vasquez, Randy Foye, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead. But he sees a route to success, he told reporters at his basketball camp in Bloomington, Indiana, this weekend. "You just have to have some intangibles," he says. "With the Nets, you have to have a basketball IQ. I feel like that’s what they look for in their organization, going out there and having a great feel for...

Is Trey Burke the Wizards' Next Randy Foye?

In 2009, the Wizards were just finishing up an injury-riddled, disappointing season which included firing then-head coach Eddie Jordan. Sound familiar? During that summer, the Wizards anticipated health and a new coaching hire would bring them back to relevance. As a result of these heightened expectations, the Wizards made one of the riskier moves in recent memory of this franchise, when they traded a package away that included their #5 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Randy Foye and Mike Miller. This was expected to be a move that showed that the Wizards were...
