Crap.

I just don't get it. How could we not sign him for that? I guess it comes down to he just wanted to be in Brooklyn. That's the only possible explanation. We have the biannual exception available, which is slightly less but not much. It really does make you sick to your stomach.

Rat farts!! I was sure the Spurs were working a backdoor deal to get AK47 here. Oh well, easy come, easy go. Brooklyn is going to be way over the luxury tax limit for next year. Big ducats.

Kirilenko and Prokhorov are friends. That's about the only explanation. No way did the Spurs sign Belinelli if there was any chance that AK signs with us for the same price.

Or Prokhorov has "influence" in Russia where he has family if you know what I mean.

I didn't even think of the Russian connection. That is huge. Ak47 will probably retire a billionaire.

Oh yeah, close to Brighton Beach and the Russian community. He'll be right at home.

His 2 year contract for $6M is less than the 1 year $10M player option he just turned down.

Yeah, there's gotta be some backroom dealings on this one with Prokhorov...no doubt.

He didn't come out ahead. He left 10 million on the table for one year. That's good money for someone drafted in 1999.

Its looking more to me like Diaw backs up the SF spot and Pendegraph gets worked into the PF slot sometime by the end of the regular season. Baynes might even see minutes at center.

This is gonna be a huge problem in the next couple years...

Next year we have alot of money coming off with Bonner/Diaw/Nando/Patty and we prob can add a nice player...

But it really seems no one wants to come here...what a shame...

Wouldn't shock me if his flirting with sa was just a smokescreen to avoid a tampering inquiry with prokorov.

It's obvious that some other money transfers will be done in Russian accounts.

I dunno, there's a lot of changes that will have to coalesce really quickly. Aging stars, rookie coach. I don't think any of these moves will put them past the Heat, Pacers, or Bulls. I'm thinking a 4/5 seed and the NBA gets to drool over a Knicks-Nets playoff series.

Nets were a 4/5 THIS year. No way they stay there. Knicks will fall back and nets will either be 1-3 IMO

Apparently I brainfarted on half the Nets' roster. Starting lineup of Deron, Johnson, Pierce, Garnett, and Lopez, with Blatche, Terry, Evans, Kirilenko, and Livingston off the bench? Yeah, the Heat should be worried. Their entire starting lineup has been to the All-Star game in the past two years. I don't think that's ever happened.

I still can't help but think that if the Nets knew the roster they'd have this season, they never would've hired Kidd as their coach. You've got an all-world lineup there, you don't hand them to a rookie coach. That lineup could've lured Phil Jackson out of retirement, I bet.

Joyner, I have to agree, with a lineup and bench like this, plus the money involved with assembling this group for a title run, having a rookie coach at the helm is playing the game a little risky. However, Kidd does have Lawrence Frank as his 'right hand man' to assist but ultimately, he's the coach and answerable to management for the results. This summer league game and the team's summer league record doesn't help his start any. Bad press, if anything. --- alh1020

Coach Jason Kidd took phone call during Summer League game



It’s Summer League, things are casual.

Although, not usually “coach will take a phone call during the game” casual.
But that’s what newly minted Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd did on Thursday. He’s coaching Summer League and walked out to take a call while his team was down 17-2. To be fair, we don’t know who the call was from — an important call from a family member, a call with a Russia country code which Kidd has learned he must take. Either way, it pretty much fits with how the Nets did in Orlando (winless).

In fairness, Kidd wasn't coaching at the time, either -- Eric Hughes was.
