He also said it will be "a lot different." How different it'll be the most interesting thing to watch in camp, along with Bogdanovic's role.

The quote I mentioned: "This team doesn't have the personnel to play like the team I had before, so why would I try to put that system in?"

NYC FC loses first pick of expansion draft to Orlando, but gets top allocation ranking. Wouldn't mind seeing Jozy Altidore back in NYC.

Stefan Bondy

Give Lawrence Frank credit: he did his daily reports diligently.

Mike Mazzeo

As others have confirmed, assistant coach Lawrence Frank has been bought out by the #Nets. His name is no longer on front office directory

Tim Bontemps

Last season was strange on several levels for the Nets, but Kidd reassigning Lawrence Frank might have been the strangest thing of all.

Tim Bontemps

Can confirm the reports by @Dan Woike & @Chris Mannix that Lawrence Frank has agreed to a buyout w/ Nets and is going to Clippers.

League source confirms @Chris Mannix report that #Nets have reached a buyout agreement with Lawrence Frank, freeing him to join #Clippers.

#Nets officially announce the signing of Willie Reed.

.#Nets have signed F/C Willie Reed..Reed 6-10, finished last season with the @Sacramento Kings. Training camp opens Saturday

I guess I got it right this time lol...

Here we go..#Nets media day tomorrow. Should be one of the most intriguing training camps in the #NBA w a new coach and some young players.

Seth Myers' face imported into 2K15 kinda looks like Mirza Teletovic. Not gonna lie.

Mike Mazzeo

Would be nice to hear Vin Scully call the World Series this season

Mike Mazzeo

That was probably Derek Jeter's last meaningful at-bat ever. But he declines a curtain call for a check-swing groundout.

Tim Bontemps

Reposting from earlier: my deep dive on the 10 questions that will determine how the Nets do this season: nypost.com/2014/09/24/the…

Mike Mazzeo

You know it's time for the season to start when everyone's debating 2K15 ratings

Mike Mazzeo

What would you do with $29.95? My friend on lunch from city job went to see Jeter's humpback liner then left the Stadium.

Tim Bontemps

It's also hilarious that in arguably the most Republican state in the country, the Thunder chose to call its D-League team the Blue.

Tim Bontemps

It would have been cool if the Thunder called its D-League team the Lightning or Tornados or something. Anything would be better than Blue.

Tim Bontemps

With only two days until training camp begins, here's my deep-dive on the 10 questions facing the Nets this season: nypost.com/2014/09/24/the…

Here's the All-Star patch the #Nets will be wearing on their jerseys this season: http://t.co/yEkyhAayBR

Andrew Keh

The Nets will have an All-Star logo on the court and on their uniforms, etc. But the SoulCycle class is what stands out, at least to me.

Tim Bontemps

Billy King says the Nets will let their play do the talking this year, Brook Lopez feels great & Nets' All-Star plans nypost.com/2014/09/24/gm-…

Andrew Keh

In February, in honor of the All-Star game being in New York, the Nets will host a SoulCycle class at Barclays Center, the team announced.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets will be wearing this patch in home games leading up to the All-Star game, team announces. http://t.co/x1CwftXuOI

Andrew Keh

A guy outside Yankee Stadium was holding a sign that read, "REPENT," which I read as, "RE2ENT." The subtle power of marketing...

Mike Mazzeo

Lopez plays five-on-five; impressed by teammates m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/…

Mike Mazzeo

Though I don't necessarily agree, this is an interesting Jeter take by @KeithOlbermann deadspin.com/keith-olberman…

Congrats to @ashleyymach for winning my #CEOseats to @theblackkeys tonight. Follopw & DM @barclayscenter to claim your tickets.

Mike Mazzeo

Best QB in Rex Ryan coaching era has been the 2011 version of Mark Sanchez, who finished 23rd in passer rating that season.

Mike Mazzeo

Should say when talking about receivers it's because Decker is out and he's so relied on and obviously can't replace him if he's hurt

Mike Mazzeo

Agree a lot is on Geno. Then I look at Kerley, Nelson, Salas, Cumberland and Amaro and think who is winning with these guys? Run. The. Ball.

Mike Mazzeo

Jets are 4-for-12 (33 percent) in the red zone this season. Combination of playcalling and personnel.

Mike Mazzeo

The options on a play like that without Decker are so limited. Jets and Giants both 1-2. NYJ sees Stafford and Megatron on Sunday.

Mike Mazzeo

Going forward the Jets may need to use more Ivory and Powell and less Johnson

Lenn Robbins

Andrei Kirilenko says he's been working on core strength with #Nets strength and conditioning coach @DrJeremyBettle. No more back spasms

Mike Mazzeo

That's mess of a play is not putting your young QB in a position to succeed.

Mike Mazzeo

Gonna be a long night for Walls if they're gonna call that

Tim Bontemps

King said Brook Lopez will likely be held out of two-a-days at the start of camp. Also said team asked him to come in lighter this year.

Mike Mazzeo

Geno Smith was making good progress ... until he threw a perfect pass to the other team for a touchdown.

Tim Bontemps

King did say, however, that focus will be on just going out and playing. Admits there were a lot of distractions the last two years.

Tim Bontemps

Have internal expectations been lowered? King: "No, internally we always have those expectations. We want to win."

Tim Bontemps

In addition to his lengthy thoughts on Pierce, Billy King also touched on a few other things today. Among them ...

Tim Bontemps

If you were looking for a reason why Paul Pierce isn't back with the Nets, GM Billy King gave three of them today: nyp.st/1wHtdio

Rod Boone

King: "Two years in a row it’s something we created ourselves. We beat our own drums. This year it’s more, 'Let's just play basketball ...'"

Rod Boone

King said #Nets expectations haven't changed from last year when they wanted to finish among top 4 in East. But don't expect chest pounding.

Stefan Bondy

King emphasized Brooklyn's goal of top-4 in the E.C. was the same last two years, and it's really about homecourt advantage in 1st round.

Andrew Keh

I like the last sentence in the Blake Griffin interview in GQ: "It's interesting what sports do to people."

Stefan Bondy

Billy King says goal for Nets this season is to finish in the top-4 in the Eastern Conference.

Stefan Bondy

Billy King: During free agency, Nets became convinced Pierce wasn't going to re-sign. When Pierce came back to the Nets, team had moved on.

Rod Boone

#Nets aren't finished rounding out their training camp roster and are expected to sign Willie Reed to a deal.

Stefan Bondy

According to Billy King, today was the first time Brook Lopez played 5-on-5 since surgery.

Willie Reed will be the last player Nets player signed to training camp.

Rod Boone

In terms of leadership void left by Paul Pierce's departure, King said he thinks KG, Alan Anderson and Jarrett Jack will help fill it.

Rod Boone

Billy King said Brook probably won't do 2-a-days at camp. Said they'll play it by ear with Deron but he should play more than last preseason
