Nets move to Brooklyn taking foreverPosted by Inside Hoops
The New York Daily News (Julian Garcia) reports: The Nets are still scheduled to move to Brooklyn. But as for exactly when that will happen, not even owner Bruce Ratner can say. At the press conference to introduce new players Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons Wednesday, Ratner acknowledged that the move, which in recent months had been pushed back to the start of the 2010-2011 season, may not occur until that season is already underway. Ratner said that the move could occur late in the year. Ratner’s spokesperson, Barry Baum, clarified the remarks, saying that the team has acknowledged for awhile that the move may not occur until the 2010 “calendar year” as opposed to before that season. “When (Ratner) says late in the year, he means late in 2010,” Baum said.
