Sean Marks on possible Nets sale: “We cross that bridge when the time comes”

Sean Marks on possible Nets sale: “We cross that bridge when the time comes”

One thing Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford never had to deal with as Spurs coach and GM was a change in ownership. Peter Holt and his family have owned the team for nearly a quarter century and there’s no indication they’ll be selling anytime soon. But Sean Marks, who’s modeled his rebuild of the Nets after the Spurs experience, may very well have to deal such a change soon. It’s become increasingly likely that Mikhail Prokhorov will soon sell at least a minority stake in the Nets, with a promise to sell the rest at a future date, generally assumed to be three years later. “We...

Nets preview: It’s a different team, but is it better?

When Sean Marks took the Nets’ general manager job midstream in 2016, he knew full well the rebuild would be long and tough, if not impossible. The staggering 123 losses they have suffered over the past two seasons — the second-worst span in team history — showed just how tough. But after using all their...

Nets are again redefining what a win is

Nets are again redefining what a win is

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said it’s time his team moves past praise for playing hard and moral victories, and starts to pile up some real ones. “There’s a little bit of solace. But this year I think it’s a little different,” Atkinson said. “I think it wasn’t sympathetic from those guys, it was great that...

Brooklyn Nets owner eyes outrageous price tag in sale

Mikhail Prokhorov is in talks with multiple suitors to sell the Brooklyn Nets — and he’s pushing for an eye-popping price tag. The Russian billionaire is demanding a valuation of around $2 billion for his money-losing NBA team — near the record-setting $2.2 billion price that the Houston Rockets fetched earlier this month, sources told...

Is Nets’ highest-paid player really not going to start?

Is Nets’ highest-paid player really not going to start?

The Nets used the exact same starting lineup throughout the preseason, but coach Kenny Atkinson insists that’s no guarantee it will remain the same when they open the regular season Wednesday in Indiana. Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell are the first-choice backcourt, and Timofey Mozgov is the presumptive starter at center. But who will get...

Nets want to play small, but this is where they could get hurt

The Nets could have a big problem when they go small. Coach Kenny Atkinson is a Mike D’Antoni disciple, and a huge proponent of his mentor’s small-ball style. But when the Nets play that way it could leave them vulnerable against top big men — an Achilles’ heel that opponents are sure to try to...

How a sports psychologist has made one Net a better player

How a sports psychologist has made one Net a better player

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has clearly matured from last season, learned not to let one bad play compound into a bad quarter or a bad game. And according to the young Nets forward, it has helped to not talk to just teammates, but the team psychologist as well. “Last season, yeah, I feel like I held onto...

Nets coach: ‘We still have to integrate’ Allen Crabbe

Foot surgery robbed Allen Crabbe of summer workouts and a sprained ankle cost him half of training camp and the preseason schedule. It’s no shock the newcomer is behind his new teammates, and getting the Nets’ priciest player up to speed is coach Kenny Atkinson’s top priority with the opener Wednesday in Indiana. “We still...

Nets counting on huge loss to build character for season

The Nets are finished with preseason and preamble. Now we’ll find out just how much grit they really have. After adding the likes of D’Angelo Russell, DeMarre Carroll and Allen Crabbe, they clearly have more talent than the squad that went an NBA-worst 20-62 last season. But the temperament? The teamwork? They’ll have to prove...

Joel Embiid shows the Nets what they’re missing in their rebuild

The Nets’ rebuilding was always going to be near-impossible because they lack their own draft picks, presumably franchise-changing lottery ones to get a transformational player. In the Nets’ 133-114 preseason-ending loss to the Sixers on Wednesday, Joel Embiid reminded them just how pivotal a young player of his caliber can be. The oft-injured Embiid had...

Nets lose perfect preseason to the team they’d love to be

The assessment of the Nets’ chances of rebuilding has always been that the job will be nearly impossible because they lack the one commodity absolutely needed: Their own draft picks, presumably franchise-changing lottery selections. Wednesday’s preseason finale was a reminder of just how tough it’ll be. The Nets got an up-close look at the opposite...

The quest for a perfect preseason will end one way or another Wednesday night when the Nets play host to the 76ers at Nassau Coliseum. But for a team that’s not reading much into its 3-0 record, the game will serve an important function as coach Kenny Atkinson gets a final look at how he...

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is set to enter his third season as a Net, and the way Kenny Atkinson gushed about him on Tuesday the small forward could be in for a big year. “He’s in a nice place right now,” Atkinson said. “I’ve really been kind of thrilled with his performance and that’s from the first...

Caris LeVert is seeing an improvement in key area

Allen Crabbe wasn’t the only Net to come back from a sprained ankle Sunday. Caris LeVert also made his preseason debut in the rout of the Knicks, and not only looked healthy but better than ever. “Caris, he definitely didn’t ease his way into the game,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said of LeVert. “He came...
