Amin Elhassan

Only to their own fans RT @caseybannerman: @Amin Elhassan it failed, gotta be something evil about how Nets tried to build a contender last year.

Devin Kharpertian

I see no other option. RT @moe_1226: @Devin Kharpertian he should force a trade to the Nets don't you think?

Lenn Robbins

#Nets face daunting task vs #Hawks, who have won 16 straight. Hawks scoring 103 pts per game. Nets 95. No @Deron Williams & no @Mirza Teletovic

Tim Bontemps

Jason Kidd signing Jorge Gutierrez to play for the Bucks is not the least bit surprising. He was a big fan of Gutierrez last year w the Nets

Marc Stein

Also hearing that the @Milwaukee Bucks are planning to sign former Nets guard Jorge Gutierrez on a 10-day deal out of @nbadleague in the near future

Rick Bonnell

Dwyane Wade has left the Heat game with more hamstring troubles. You sense Heat, Hornets and Nets will stagger to finish line this season.

Tom Lorenzo

League Pass alert, Nets fans: Richard Jefferson, Devin Harris and Vince Carter all in for Griz-Mavs.

Mike Mazzeo

Maybe this period for the Nets is equivalent to signing Yashin and dealing Luongo and Jokinen for Parrish and Kvasha.

Tim Bontemps

I know people don't like the Nets for a variety of reasons, but I don't understand the hate towards Mason Plumlee being in the dunk contest.

Devin Kharpertian

Last Nets player in the dunk contest was Richard Jefferson in 2003. He wasn’t very good.

Devin Kharpertian

Mason Plumlee’s fine. I’m not going to debate Mason Plumlee. He’s the only reason the Nets are worth watching right now.

Alex Raskin

Mason Plumlee can be seen here dunking three balls. I also witnessed him jump over seven-foot Jerome Jordan. youtube.com/watch?v=kqmfa0… #Nets

Alex Raskin

Mason Plumlee is the third #Nets player to compete in the dunk contest, joining Richard Jefferson (sure) and Chris Morris (really?)

Mike Tokito

NBA announces dunk contest entrants: Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, TWolves’ Zach LaVine, Magic’s Victor Oladipo, Nets’ Mason Plumlee.

Chuck Swirsky

Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine, the Magic’s Victor Oladipo and the Nets’ Mason Plumlee. Slam Dunk Contest

Mike Tokito

Hawks' games vs. Nets is on ESPN, one of 2 national TV shots for them ALL season; none on TNT, which is literally next door to their arena.

Mike Tokito

If Hawks beat Nets on Wednesday, they would be on a 17-game winning streak when #Blazers take them on in ATL Friday.

Mike Tokito

Atlanta Hawks are 14-0 in January, with games vs. Nets, #Blazers and 76ers. Only 1995-96 Bulls have ever gone unbeaten in January (16-0).

Devin Kharpertian

Tomorrow’s game is Nets (2-10 in last 12) vs Hawks (16 straight), in Atlanta, on ESPN. Getting ready for completely irrational win territory

Rod Boone

#Nets held a light practice in Philly today and they say Deron participated in the non-contact portions. Still listed as out for ATL.

Chris Vivlamore

Nets list Deron Williams as OUT for Wednesday's game vs. Hawks. #ATLHawks

Alex Raskin

Deron Williams is out for the #nets game against the #Hawks on Wednesday.

Devin Kharpertian

Update: Deron Williams participated in non-contact portions of Nets practice today. He is still ruled out for tomorrow vs. Hawks

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams practiced non-contact today in Philly. Out tomorrow vs. Hawks #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Also, Joe Johnson is the ONLY healthy Nets player shooting above league average from 3. & Deron Williams is the only other.

Devin Kharpertian

…to help Nets. It’s possible, and if they have deals lined up, may be worth it. But it’s not cut and dry to just make a deal for that sake.

Devin Kharpertian

I wrote yesterday why the Nets shouldn’t trade Joe Johnson for the proposed CHA package: bkga.me/1wy2i6p

Adi Joseph

Even if this offseason proves completely fruitless and the team gets worse somehow, the Lakers probably have a better future than the Nets.

Devin Kharpertian

Dunno if it was officially reported yet, but Nets got out of NYC and are flying from Philly today. Will make it to Atlanta without issue.

Kurt Helin

Nets coach Lionel Hollins calls idea he doesn’t like advanced stats ‘dumbest thing I’ve ever heard’ dlvr.it/8GQ7xY

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks guard Shelvin Mack status remains at OUT vs. Nets Wednesday. #ATLHawks

Kurt Helin

Report: Nets “evaluating” struggling team, including Lionel Hollins dlvr.it/8FtK9g

Alex Kennedy

The Nets could obviously dump those guys. But getting significant pieces back who would turn around their season is proving to be difficult.

Alex Kennedy

Rival executive told me that restrictions put on tax teams and ugly contracts of Williams/Johnson are making it difficult for Nets to trade.

Devin Kharpertian

Timberwolves-Thunder has both replaced Nets on NBA TV and matched them in basketball aesthetics.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets-Blazers kicked off about 45 minutes ago in alternate universe. Nets down 19 with four minutes left in the second quarter.

Alex Raskin

When the blizzard subsides, Lionel Hollins and Joe Johnson will still be with the #Nets. on.wsj.com/1uUK3y0 via @WSJ

Steve Kyler

Wow... the immediate damage control on Lionel Hollins from the Nets is impressive. Telling anyone who will listen no substance.

Chris Mannix

Internally there is a strong belief that the Nets mess isn't due to Hollins tough-love style; it's the players resistance to it.

Jorge Sierra

The latest rumors on Nets head coach Lionel Hollins here. bit.ly/15ExTwP

Chris Mannix

Lionel Hollins job is safe with Brooklyn, multiple league sources tell SI.com. Nets have no intention of firing Hollins.

Stefan Bondy

Source: Nets are not looking to fire Lionel Hollins, ESPN story "is totally false."

Sam Amico

NBA Dribbles: Pistons, Cavs, D-League help, Hornets, Nets, etc. ow.ly/HZdgZ

Steve Popper

Has the Nets midseason evaluation of coach become an official winter holiday yet?

Sean Highkin

They should really just have the Blazers play the Kings an extra time and not reschedule the Knicks or Nets. Nobody will mind.

Joe Freeman

After Trail #Blazers-Brooklyn Nets game is postponed, travel adventure begins for Portland: oregonlive.com/blazers/index.…

Alex Raskin

This may have been reported elsewhere already but the #Nets and #Hornets are no longer discussing Joe Johnson. That could change, though.
