Sean Marks Rumors

Bridges appreciates how the area and the Nets have valued him so much already. Whatever the negative perception has been on the outside hasn’t been his experience, specifically with the team’s ownership and front office. “Joe Tsai’s a nice guy. His family’s sweet. I love his wife [Clara Wu Tsai]. His kids are really cool. They’re great people, man. They love the city of Brooklyn and they just want to do whatever it takes for the fans. They’re just great. They welcomed me with open arms and it’s been literally ever since,” Bridges said. “Sean Marks is a really good dude. I like ’em a lot. I don’t know, you hear the whole thing about what’s going on in Brooklyn and how people don’t like this and that. But I’m just like, these people are great. They’re great people.”
The Nets did the same thing late last season in converting two-way rookie Kessler Edwards to a standard deal. Brooklyn had a space open on its roster because of another move, the departure of little-used Moses Brown after the expiration of his 10-day deal. Considering how well Duke Jr. has developed and how little Brown has played — and how unlikely he was to feature in the playoffs — it was a logical move by GM Sean Marks.
