With less than three hours to go, trade rumors fly ... nothing confirmed

With less than three hours to go, trade rumors fly ... nothing confirmed

A flurry of rumors just before noon raised the possibility that the Nets will make a move, perhaps as a player in a deal, perhaps as a facilitator on a larger deal. The deadline is 3 p.m. ET. Among the deals rumored in tweets, with more or less credibility... —Carroll would go to Indiana for Al Jefferson and a pick, not further described. Carroll is owed $14.6 million this season and $15.6 million next year. Jefferson, the 6’10” center, is owed $10 million this year and $4 million next. (Sam Amick) —Carroll and Joe Harris would go to Denver for Kenneth Faried and a 1st rounder,...

James Webb III, coming along nicely

James Webb III, coming along nicely

James Webb III, the Nets new two-way deal, had his best game vs. Houston on Tuesday. In 18 minutes, he scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting, both 3-pointers, and grabbed six rebounds. He followed that up Wednesday with another 15 minutes of action in Detroit, hitting one of two 3-pointers. After a slow start, the 6’9” He says 6’10”) stretch 4 is starting to get acclimated. In the last four games, he’s gone 4-of-8 from deep and grabbed nearly 4.5 boards in 15.3 minutes per game. And, his coach notes, he plays good D. Small sample, of course, but like his time with Long...

After Nets’ debacle, teams unwilling to give up firsts

After Nets’ debacle, teams unwilling to give up firsts

Deals are few and far apart so far this trade deadline and one reason is that teams, scared off by the Nets’ 2013 Boston debacle, are unwilling to offer first rounders as part of packages. As Adrian Wojnarowski points out in a series of overnight tweets, no team is willing to offer a first for Julius Randle; Memphis is still holding out for a first in return for Tyreke Evans ... but with little hope of success; and Indiana has been aggressive in offering its salary space to extract a first-round pick. Again, no luck. It doesn’t stop there. Boston wants a first for Marcus Smart. The...

Spencer Dinwiddie: ‘If I’m moved, I’m moved...’

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Spencer Dinwiddie knows Brooklyn is where he wants to be now and in the future. But he isn’t a fool. He knows it’s that time of the year for business decisions to be made. “The great part about this organization is that Sean Marks and Kenny [Atkinson] are always going to be diligent in the process, trying to improve the team not only by thinking about now, but thinking long-term,” Dinwiddie told NetsDaily. “And you have to respect that whichever way that happens. Obviously I was a beneficiary of that last year. If I’m moved, I’m moved. That’s just the way...

Joe Harris: ‘I love being part of this organization’

It sounded a little like a goodbye, Joe Harris’ comments to the media Wednesday, one day before the trade deadline. The Nets 6’6” shooting guard is reportedly coveted by a number of teams and if he goes, he’ll go with a heavy heart. “I love being a part of this organization,” Harris said before starting against the Pistons Wednesday night. “My experience in Cleveland was quite a bit different than here, not only from the playing standpoint but just culturally this organization is different. “Not to say one is right or wrong, but I do appreciate the way that they do things...

Crabbe drops 34 but Nets suffer fourth straight loss, 115-106

Crabbe drops 34 but Nets suffer fourth straight loss, 115-106

It’s hard to fault the Nets when they’re fighting despite being depleted, but the losses aren’t getting any easier. They lost their fourth straight game, 115-106, in the second night of back-to-back against the Detroit Pistons, Wednesday. They’ve also lost eight of the last nine. According to Ian Eagle of YES, they’ve also lost 27 straight games on the road in the second night of a back-to-back. That dates all the way back to December 21, 2015 at Chicago. Sheesh. This matchup looked like a headache before it even began. Andre Drummond has been a nightmare for the Nets’ young...

The Nets just haven’t gotten it done at home

*This* was supposed to be the relief period. The silver lining, if you will. Take a look at what we noted a month and a half ago... So, if you need some silver lining, after the New Year's Eve game in Boston, #Nets will have 16 of their next 25 games at home, including the first 5 in January, and 6 of the first 7 in February.— Bryan Fonseca ️ (@BryanFonsecaNY) December 29, 2017 #Nets were 3-2 to open December, and have now lost 7 of their last 8.But, in their favor, they have 5 straight home games to begin January, 9 in total.6 of first 7 games in February are also at home. 7...

Does upcoming backcourt logjam mean now’s the time to trade Dinwiddie

Does upcoming backcourt logjam mean now’s the time to trade Dinwiddie

In his daily update on the NBA trade season, Fred Kerber quotes an NBA scout who says the Nets backcourt is so crowded that it may be time to unload Spencer Dinwiddie. “I think the Nets will trade Dinwiddie at some point. They’ve got [Jeremy] Lin coming back. They feel D’Angelo Russell is part of their future. Dinwiddie’s value is probably the highest because he’s got another year at a low number ($1.656 million, partially guaranteed). And he’s playing real well,” the scout said. “If those guys come back healthy, he won’t play as much and then he’s an unrestricted free...

Nets visit the new-look Pistons

Nets visit the new-look Pistons

Hard to overcome the odds when you're facing two future Hall of Famers. The Brooklyn Nets put up a good fight against the Houston Rockets last night, but couldn't go over the top and lost by 10 points at home. The opponent tonight will be the Detroit Pistons. A few weeks ago, they appeared to be a team sinking and in need of major changes. Since then, they've gotten back on track and have a decent shot of sneaking into the playoffs. Their win against the Portland Trailblazers on Monday night pushed their winning streak to four. We'll get to the major change they made in a bit. Where to...

Milton Doyle sets Long Island scoring record, records team’s first triple-double

Milton Doyle sets Long Island scoring record, records team’s first triple-double

It was a good night for the Nets two-way players Tuesday. James Webb III had six points and six rebounds in Brooklyn’s tough loss to Houston at Barclays Center. And out on Long Island, Milton Doyle had one the G-League’s best game this season, a 42-point scoring explosion inside a triple-double against Raptors 905, the G-League’s defending champs. Doyle, the Nets 6’4” shooting guard, recorded the first triple-double in Long Island’s history scoring a career-high 42 points and adding 10 rebounds and 11 assists in 39 minutes. He shot 66.7 percent (14-of-21) from the field and ...

The Magic of James Harden

The Magic of James Harden

Larry Fleisher has covered the Nets for a variety of news organizations over the years. He knows the game and in this guest column examines how James Harden affects the game ... with his presence as well as his scoring. Sometimes the headline says it all, like the headline to our recap, titled James Harden too much for the Nets. Tuesday was the 16th time James Harden faced the Nets since entering the league as Oklahoma City’s first-round pick out of Arizona State in 2009. While he is the league’s top scorer, it wasn’t always that way. He came off the bench in his first four games...

Rashad Vaughn is excited for a fresh start in Brooklyn

Rashad Vaughn is excited for a fresh start in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The Brooklyn Nets now own three top-20 picks from the 2015 draft in D’Angelo Russell, Jahlil Okafor and now, Rashad Vaughn. They also have the No. 23 pick, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. All are between 21 and 23 years old, with Vaughn the youngest. He was introduced to the media before Tuesday’s game and talked about how excited he is to play with a rebuilding organization like the Nets. “Just [see] a group of young guys,” said Vaughn. “You can see the future here and you can look at the organization, what they’re doing with the practice facility. It’s a...

Harden, Rockets too much for Nets: 123-113

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- They played well, but it wasn’t enough against the second-best team in the West. Down 10 in the second quarter, the Nets finished the half down two. They fought their way back and even took a four-point lead in the third quarter, but the Rockets finished out the quarter on a 12-2 run and took a double-digit lead. They never looked back from there, although the Nets brought it within six with under a little over a minute remaining. Then, James Harden put the dagger home with 33 seconds to go up 10. The Rockets (39-13) won their fifth straight game over the Brooklyn Nets...

Acy out, Harris starts, Mozgov (maybe) in, says Atkinson

Quincy Acy is out for Tuesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets. According to Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson, Acy is out with a sprained right middle finger and will be … wait for it … day-to-day! So with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson already out, and Tyler Zeller dealt and gone to Milwaukee, the Nets may look deep (deep … deep) into their bag of tricks tonight and play Timofey Mozgov, the former starting center who hasn’t played since January 10, and whose seen action in 25 games this season. Regarding Acy’s injury, Atkinson initially declined to say who would...

Would Nets trade DeMarre Carroll for Tyler Johnson, Justice Winslow?

Would Nets trade DeMarre Carroll for Tyler Johnson, Justice Winslow?

The Miami Herald is reporting that the Heat could offer combo guard Tyler Johnson and small forward Justise Winslow to the Nets for DeMarre Carroll. Does that make sense? Not really. It would essentially be another salary dump in which the inclusion of Winslow would be the sugar and Johnson the bitter medicine. Johnson is still in Miami because the Heat matched on the Nets 2016 RFA offer sheet, providing him with $50 million over four years. But the way the deal worked, the biggest chunk of the contract —$38.4 million— gets split the last two years of his contract, next season...

Nets can’t afford a night off against Houston

Nets can’t afford a night off against Houston

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- The last two times the Nets and Rockets have played, they’ve set new records in combined three-point attempts. In January, 2017 they combined to shoot 88 three-pointers, broken in their November, 2017 meeting in Houston, where the teams attempted 89 from beyond the arc. The Nets lost both games, but it’s clear that there are plenty of worse match-ups across the NBA than tonight against Houston. They’re even the top two three-point shooting teams (in terms of attempts) in the NBA, with Houston jacking up 43.0 per game, and the Nets a distant second at 33.9 per...

Buck teammates credit Rashad Vaughn with work ethic, demeanor ... dancing

Rashad Vaughn’s future with the Nets is murky at best. It appears the Nets wanted the second round pick, which likely will be conveyed in 2020, more than the 21-year-old Vaughn, who has been a disappointment since being drafted 17th in 2015. However, Vaughn’s Buck teammates praised him for his off-the-court demeanor and his work ethic, noting that he could shine given a new opportunity in Brooklyn. Vaughn averaged 3.1 points in 12.3 minutes per game over 133 appearances. “Rashad was a great guy for us; he’s one of those locker room guys,” Khris Middleton told Matt Velazquez of...

DeMarre Carroll, Joe Harris talk Deadline Anxiety ... and the ‘T’ word

The trade deadline is Thursday, two days away, and naturally, DeMarre Carroll and Joe Harris, are undergoing pre-deadline anxiety. They’re the two players who’ve had significant roles in this improved Nets team ... and have been most linked to trade rumors in recent weeks. While noting imminent is on the horizon (that we or they know of), they both just saw teammate Tyler Zeller get shipped out the door in exchange for new Net Rashad Vaughn, and a second round pick from the Milwaukee Bucks, one that’s likely to be conveyed in 2020. Only mentioning the “T” word peripherally,...
