Are Nets interested in France’s Edwin Jackson?

It’s hard to tell who the Nets might be interested in when they scout a game, particularly in Europe. It’s not something teams disclose ... for competitive reasons. But twice in the last month, Nets front office executives have been on hand for games where Edwin Jackson, the Spanish League’s leading scorer, has played. Sean Marks started off his March tour of Europe with...

The Nets were slated to finish with the worst record in the NBA, so Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson made the decision to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker.

David Stern blasts Nets for resting starters

Resting players is a major topic in the NBA right now and former commissioner David Stern has finally weighed in on the matter.In some ways, resting players is part of a playoff team’s strategy down the stretch and a byproduct of the NBA’s brutal schedule. Teams want to win titles and entering the playoffs well-rested can help.But for teams out of the running there is little...

Brooklyn Nets: Offseason to do list

Brooklyn Nets: Why Kenny Atkinson is the right man for the job

Kenny Atkinson—rookie head coach who led his team to the worst record in the NBA. That sounds pretty bad at first glance. And it is. However, a small sample size doesn’t, and shouldn’t, be the sole judgment we have on someone’s profession. Atkinson surely showed his flaws this season, but all young head coaches come into the league incomplete, so just wait for the “new...

Kevin Garnett: “I’m not a host, bro. I’m not going to be able to get through tag lines.”

Plenty of former athletes have gone into broadcasting, but most frequently in the well-defined traditional roles of color commentators or studio analysts. We’re starting to see more unusual spins on that, though, and one of the most interesting may be what Turner Sports is doing with Kevin Garnett. Rather than put Garnett on their Inside the NBA panel or assign him to color commentary...

Brooklyn Nets: Report cards for the impact players

Well, the season is over and for the Brooklyn Nets, well, they didn’t disappoint that much. You may be saying, “what do you mean? They had the worst record in the NBA!” Yes, that is true, but the Nets finished the season 12-13, a standing that saw multiple improvements down the roster. Jeremy Lin finished the season healthy, and his availability proved that the Nets could have...

Brooklyn Nets Finishing Strong, Chance to Play Spoiler Down the Stretch

The Brooklyn Nets (19-59), 10-10 since the start of March and undefeated in April (3-0), have the chance to play the role of spoiler (to perfection) over the final four games of the 2016-17 regular season. What seemed like a foregone conclusion at the All-Star break (a last-place finish) is no longer a given for Brooklyn. Four more wins to close the campaign may result in an escape...

Finding reasons for optimism in Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Nets are nearly a lock to earn the infamous "worst team of the year" title. With future franchise-rebuilding assets headed up the coast to a division rival and a roster barren of talent, this Nets club has little appeal -- just a poorly run team reaping what they sowed (or more fittingly, forgot to). Those Nets knew this was going to be the start of multiple year slog...
