Joe Tsai, through entities controlled by him, has completed the acquisition of full ownership of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center. With the closing of the transaction, Tsai becomes NBA Governor of the Nets and its affiliates and Chairman of Barclays Center.
“With full ownership of the Nets and Barclays Center, we will continue to bring our exciting brand of basketball to our fans,” said Tsai. “We’ve made a strong commitment to Brooklyn and it will be a privilege to present the best of Barclays Center with its great entertainment to our community.”
Commenting on the work of Nets General Manager Sean Marks and Head Coach Kenny Atkinson, Tsai said: “Sean and Kenny have done an extraordinary job building the team.

Brian Lewis: Tsai said Marks & Atkinson built a culture “where the best players want to play… We have an incredible group of players who want to win & because of their talent & hard work, we are now in a great position to compete. I’m thrilled to be partners with winners!” #Nets @joetsai1999
