The Brooklyn Nets have signed free agent center Hamady Ndiaye, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. Ndiaye most recently played for Senegal’s national team in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup and spent part of the 2013-14 season with the Sacramento Kings. In 14 games with Sacramento, Ndiaye totaled six points, 18 rebounds and [...]
When Deron Williams played for the Utah Jazz, there was a legitimate debate about whether you'd rather have him or Chris Paul as your point guard of the future. Williams was a big point guard with one of the nastiest crossovers the league has seen. Then he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets and was befallen by ankle injuries that took away his ability to be a star in this league. He may actually ...
In year one, the Brooklyn Nets won plaudits for its "Hello Brooklyn" ad campaign as the team introduced itself to the borough. Last year, with its (misplaced) championship aspirations, it was "Are You Ready?" Now, with the franchise settling in, it's "We Are Brooklyn." The campaign is underway, reports AdWeek. "Year three is a combination of both," Brett Yormark said, discussing the new ...
John Schuhmann of NBA.com perhaps summed it up best... Can Deron Williams get back to being Deron Williams? If the answer to at least one of the Lopez and Williams questions is a positive and the other isn't a clear negative, this can still be a good team, especially on offense, where Hollins will have more to work with than he did in Memphis.
The latest? The annual list of most overpaid NBA players, as written by Sean Deveney and as based on "science," that is a weighted balance involving money, player efficiency ratings and win shares, "win shares being an estimated number of wins to which the player contributes." Of the seven-time All-Star, aka Joe Jesus, aka Joe Johnson, Deveney writes... "While he has established himself as a ...
Last September, Deron Williams hobbled down the red carpet of his annual charity dodgeball event with a boot around his right foot. It was an ominous sight that set the tone for yet another frustrating season for the Brooklyn Nets point guard.
The Brooklyn Nets were bounced in the second round of the playoffs last season, and they enter this year with a new head coach and a healthy Brook Lopez . Looking to build on the recent progress, can Lionel Hollins make the Nets a threat in the Eastern Conference? Howard Beck and Ric Bucher join Adam Lefkoe to break down the upcoming NBA season in Brooklyn in the video above.
Lionel Hollins is the Brooklyn Nets fourth coach in three years following Avery Johnson, P.J. Carlesimo and Jason Kidd. He's also their seven coach in seven years. Lawrence Frank, Tom Barrise (for two games), Kiki Vandeweghe worked in New Jersey before the team moved. Different systems, different personalities.
The Brooklyn Nets and their capped-out roster came up short of championship aspirations last season when they fell in the second round to the Miami Heat. Last season, Jason Collins didn't receive much of a role with the Nets. The acquisition of Collins was mostly to give Jason Kidd the insurance of always having a big man to go to, just in case any injuries occurred or Kevin Garnett needed extra ...
Jason Kidd spent one season as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, but it never felt like he was at home in the city of New York, let alone the borough of Brooklyn. After having lobbied for the job just months prior to his retirement from the NBA as a player, Kidd over-played his hand at season's end and soon found himself as the newest head coach of the Bucks and living in Milwaukee. In an ...
