Dwight Howard admitted Thursday that he wanted to be traded from the Orlando Magic to the Brooklyn Nets.
During one of their conversations in the summer before free agency began, Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams told general manager Billy King not to wait and see if he could try to acquire Dwight Howard.
The Brooklyn Nets will tip off their inaugural season against the New York Knicks on Nov. 1, in the first regular-season game at the $1 billion Barclays Center.
Brook Lopez would like to remain a member of the Brooklyn Nets for the rest of his career. Whether that happens or not, remains to be seen.
Deron Williams made it official nearly an hour after the NBA moratorium was lifted Wednesday at 12:01 a.m. ET, signing his five-year, $98 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets in Las Vegas.
The Brooklyn Nets have tendered center Brook Lopez a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent at midnight July 1, general manager Billy King said Wednesday.
Deron Williams turned 28 on Tuesday, so the Brooklyn Nets decided to park a massive sign in front of his Manhattan house to wish him a happy birthday.
