Mikhail Prokhorov Rumors

Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment announced Thursday that they will be moving corporate offices, including the Nets business operations, to Industry City next year. They will lease —and renovate— the floor directly below the HSS Training Center.. Business operations have been headquartered at Metro Tech, Bruce Ratner’s office complex in the borough. The lease at Metro Tech was up … and consolidating office space has been an organization goal since the Nets chose the Industry City site on 39th Street just off Upper New York Bay.

Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, while focused on selling a minority stake in the franchise, has warmed recently to the possibility of offering a controlling slice of the team, sources close to the situation said. The change of heart comes after the initial reaction to the minority stake sale was weak — and with interest in the Houston Rockets sale heating up, one source said. The Nets believe some of the suitors who look at the Rockets will also take an interest in them, sources said. “As word gets out about the new Nets process, some of the Rockets interest may spill over,” a source said.
