Free agent forward D.J. White will join the Bulls for training camp according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein (via Twitter). While it sounds as if White will be on a non-guaranteed contract Stein reports that he'll be given a chance to earn a regular-season roster spot.
White 27 appeared in 12 games last season for the Celtics after returning from China but was included in the...
When the Nets moved to Brooklyn last year, many of the players kept their homes in New Jersey, trading the inconvenience a longer commute to work for the comfort of a suburban home life.

The Brooklyn Nets made big moves this summer but still received a scare when they found out Brook Lopez needed surgery on his foot because of a bent screw in his right foot. Training camp is scheduled to start in about a week's time and it looks as if Lopez will be able to partake in the basketball activities, as reported by Ian Begley of ESPN New York."It's great...
Seems absurd, right? How could a guy, who’s never coached a minute in the NBA, be on the hot seat? Simple: Expectations. This off-season, Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, and GM Billy King, went out and added a couple guys with solid résumé’s, in Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Andrei Kirilenko, and Jason Terry, almost immediately cementing […]

Johnson is a six-time all-star […]
Jason Kidd sounded more like a Ben & Jerry's taste-tester than the Brooklyn Nets new head coach on Tuesday.
The first year coach set a goal yesterday to change the Nets' identity, from the bland tasting squad which fell flat last last season to a more flavorful blend of competitors. Kidd understands that GM Billy King did most of the prep work already — acquiring...
NBA training camps are just around the corner, and in anticipation of that and the upcoming season, Nets head coach Jason Kidd spoke to the media Tuesday at Barclays Center and appeared on local television. Here are some takeaways from those appearances.

The rivalry between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets just got more intense. New York City will host the NBA’s 2015 All-Star Weekend, but be played in two different arenas. Sunday’s All-Star Game will be at the New York Knicks home court, Madison Square Garden and the dunk contest, the 3-point shooting contest and the skills challenge will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays...
Back on Wednesday, NBA commissioner David Stern was announcing the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets would be co-hosting the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend at a press conference.
Sadly for David, he had a tiny slip-up by saying that the Nets were based in New York instead of Brooklyn:
To defend Mr. Stern, the Nets did play in New York from 1968-1977.
David Stern says New York...

I think it is safe to say that J.R Smith and Paul Pierce don’t like each other.
This offseason has been an interesting one, with trades, signings, and even the emergence of...
