Brooklyn Nets Rumors
In a special message for Brooklyn fans, Nets Principal Owner Mikhail Prokhorov talks about the current state of the team and what’s to come in the future. Complementing the core of Brook Lopez, Thaddeus Young and Joe Johnson, Prokhorov highlights the shift to a youth-focused team with high levels of athleticism. The one thing that remains constant, Prokhorov reiterates, is that the team is here to win, and the Nets are committed to doing whatever it takes to make that happen.
The Brooklyn Nets will host Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul of the Turkish Basketball League for a preseason game on October 5, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at Barclays Center, General Manager Billy King announced today. “We are excited to be hosting Fenerbahce, as it will be a reunion for Bojan Bogdanovic with his former team,” said King. “Our fans will have an opportunity to see one of the best coached teams in all of Europe when they come to Brooklyn.”
And one more note: you may remember my promise to get married if we didn’t win a championship within five years. Sadly to say, five years have passed. And today, I am very happy to say that NBA commissioner Adam Silver has agreed to take the plunge in my place. Adam, you are a much better man than me. Thank you very much, and I wish you and your new bride every happiness. And to the Nets fans, have a best rest of the summer, and I will be seeing you soon.
Ryan Boatright went in facing long odds to win a spot in the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets, but because of his performances in the summer leagues, he appears to have shortened those odds considerably. “We saw enough of Ryan’s talents here to understand who he is and what he is and how we need to improve him,” Nets assistant coach Joe Wolf told Newsday. “So that’s the challenge for us as assistant coaches.”
