Fan experience, interactivity and advertising on jerseys were among the topics covered by Onexim Sports & Entertainment President Irina Pavlova during a wide-ranging one-on-one interview at the 2014 Game Changers conference in New York City. Pavlova said she would like to see jersey patch advertising become a regular sponsorship feature in the NBA. “I personally think we’re missing out on the huge revenue stream on the jersey patch advertising,” said Pavlova, whose Onexim Sports & Entertainment holds a 45 percent interest in the Barclays Center. “I’m hopeful that that is something that will come up in the near future for a new discussion. The problem is, there are 30 teams in the league, everyone has a different financial situation, market, different willingness to spend and it’s just hard to get everyone to agree on the same thing.” Sports Business Daily

The Nets begin training camp on Sept. 27. Assuming all goes well during the next couple of weeks, it should be the first time in at least two years that Williams will start a season without a worrisome injury issue. “I practiced one time, played nine minutes in a preseason game and was thrown into the fire at 60 or 70 percent,” Williams said of the 2013-14 season. “It’s definitely different this year, and I think it’s great.” New York Times

Three months after undergoing surgery on both ankles, Deron Williams feels like a new man. “[Before the surgery], I was just walking around and my ankles would swell up. [Now] they feel good. I’ve been working out hard every day, getting ready to go,” Williams said Monday at his charity dodgeball tournament in Manhattan, which benefited his Point of Hope Foundation. “Any time that happens, that’s bad.

For the 10th consecutive season, each singly-affiliated NBA team will have one NBA D-League team to which it may assign its players. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the lone independent NBA D-League Team, will be affiliated with the remaining 13 NBA teams (Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards). To accommodate assignments to Fort Wayne, a flexible assignment system will be utilized when an independent NBA team assigns a player at a time when the Mad Ants already have either the maximum of four NBA players on assignment or two assigned players at the position of the NBA player who is being assigned. In either event, the NBA D-League will identify to the assigning NBA team any singly-affiliated NBA D-League team that is willing to accept the assigned player, and the independent NBA team assigning the player will choose a team from among those teams to assign the player. If no singly-affiliated NBA D-League team is willing to accept the assigned player, he will be assigned to one of the non-NBA-owned single affiliate teams pursuant to a lottery. NBA.com

Jorge Gutierrez will likely be pitted against Marquis Teague in a competition for the limited minutes behind Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack. At this point, Teague is more likely to stay on the roster. He'll cost the Nets $3 million if he is waived. Hollins also reportedly sees potential in Teague's speed and quickness and might want to keep the 21-year-old around and develop him. Gutierrez could be cut because he has a tiny guarantee, at $25,000, and will get it only if he is still on the roster on September 26, the opening day of training camp. He was battling a shoulder injury throughout the FIBA World Cup. NetsDaily
