Thaddeus Young has informed the Brooklyn Nets he will become a free agent, and general manager Billy King says they want to keep the forward and center Brook Lopez.
“Jurassic World” may be number one at the cinema, but you can’t get anywhere close to number one in the NBA by showcasing dinosaurs like Lopez.
The 2013 NBA All-Star is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent.
Nets general manager Billy King has an opportunity to free up salary cap space this offseason, but the road he must travel he doesn’t appear to want to drive.
Former Nets center Jayson Williams’ career in the NBA made him famous, but his life off the court made even more headlines.
It’s a Brooklyn three-peat.
Keeping Brook Lopez is the priority, while moving Deron Williams and Joe Johnson could be options if King decides to break up Brooklyn’s core.
Billy King’s timing couldn’t have been better.
You can break down why one of the teams won 60 games during the regular season while the other finished six games under .500 into one simple sentence: The Hawks dribble to pass while the Nets dribble to shoot.
They were separated by 22 victories in the regular season and a mere nine points so far in the playoffs.
The definition of a Nets fan’s fool’s gold: A Jarrett Jack hot shooting streak. You see, Atlanta doesn’t rely on one guy to play hero every possession.
Al Horford and Jeff Teague scored 20 points apiece, helping the top-seeded Atlanta Hawks hold off the Brooklyn Nets 107-97 Wednesday night in an NBA playoff series that’s closer than anyone envisioned.
Atlanta has to know exactly what Brooklyn is feeling right now. And that knowledge might be scary.
More important than any strategy, Lionel Hollins has these Nets playing with a passion, an attention to detail on the defensive end, and unselfishness on offense.
Deron Williams rebounded from two dismal games with 35 points, and the Brooklyn Nets pulled out a 120-115 overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, tying the series at two games apiece.
