King also expressed a desire to bring back Alan Anderson, whom he called “Mr. Reliable,” and said the team will extend a qualifying offer to Mirza Teletovic to make him a restricted free agent. But with limited ways to improve this summer and another full year remaining until the Nets have the salary cap space to make significant changes, King has his work cut out for him. “It’s really incumbent on us, when you don’t have those picks, to be creative and come up with other ways to do it,” King said. “That’s a challenge, but it’s doable.”
Alan Anderson – one of four Nets players who decided to make a social statement by wearing the shirts – said he and his teammates hadn’t discussed whether they would continue to take a stand in Wednesday’s game at Chicago. Jarrett Jack, Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett also wore the shirts for the Nets, which were provided by former minority owner, Jay Z. “The ‘I Can’t Breathe’ shirts? Nah, not that I know of as of yet,” said Anderson, who still has the shirt in his possession and will start on Wednesday in place of Joe Johnson, who is battling the flu and won’t travel with the team.

The Nets don’t have any immediate plans to wear the “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts — a reference to the final words spoken by Eric Garner before he died from being placed in an apparent chokehold by an NYPD officer — for any of their upcoming games. “The ‘I Can’t Breathe’ shirts? Nah, not that I know of as of yet,” said Alan Anderson, one of four Nets players to don the shirts before Monday’s loss to the Cavs.
When asked what message the T-shirt sent out to the country, James responded: “I don’t know. It’s not for us to figure out. It’s just for us to understand what we’re going through as a society. I’ve been forwarded over and over about what’s been going on. This is more of a notion to the family more than anything. As a society we have to do better. We have to be better for one another no matter what race you are. But it’s more of a shoutout to the family more than anything because they’re the ones who should be getting the energy and effort.”
