Steve Nash: ‘The buy-out market - that’s one of the reasons we want to remain flexible’

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Brooklyn Nets have been up to things as of late, bringing in a new face, Tyler Cook, while waiving Andre Roberson and Iman Shumpert with the expectation they’ll be able to sign them to more financially flexible 10-day contracts. There’s a reason for that and it shouldn’t be a surprise; the Nets appear to be preparing to go big-game hunting at the deadline on March 25 while perusing the buyout market two weeks later. Prior to Thursday’s game against the Orlando Magic, Steve Nash admitted that quiet part out loud. “The buy-out...

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Kevin Durant will be back... sooner than later, according to Steve Nash. How soon? Think before the All-Star Game, “Yeah I do,” said Nash to a question about whether Durant will return before the break which begins March 4 for Brooklyn. “But again, we’re just trying to monitor and be cautious. We’re definitely trying to slow things down in that respect –– not put any pressure on him, not trying rush him back in any capacity, and just make sure we give him the right amount of time to be more than healed; to be strong and conditioned...

Sunday’s game against the Clippers was his fourth-straight absence due to that right hamstring injury. “I don’t have an update. I think he’s progressing every day, though, and...

It doesn’t rain that often in LA but the Nets made everyone at Staples wear galoshes as they poured it on.

Photo by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via It only makes sense that Landry Shamet put the final nail in the coffin against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. For fear of spoiling the punchline, it’s probably best to backtrack to the beginning. No player has taken more crap than Landry Shamet within online Nets communities this season (aside from maybe Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot) in the recent weeks. With every missed three, moans and groans would ensue –– virtual ones, of course –– jam-packed with hashtags and schoolyard name-calling. Much of this pertained to how...
