    NBA Committee Approves Prokhorov's Plan To Split Brooklyn Nets From Barclays Center

    The NBA’s advisory finance committee has approved Mikhail Prokhorov’s lease terms for splitting the Brooklyn Nets from the Barclays Center. Prokhorov owns both the NBA team and the operating rights to the arena.

Last year, the Nets made their final moves on July 14, getting agreements to sign from Luis Scola, Joe Harris and Randy Foye. The Nets do have 15 players under contract, 13 of them guaranteed. They also have signed one of their two-way deals. The Nets can still be a player in salary dumps or even tender an offer sheet to a late restricted free agent. Patience, you skywalkers. Here’s what else is going on... Lots of overseas activity: July 25 and 25 - Jeremy Lin will host NBA China basketball clinics in Shenzen and Shanghai as he wraps up his
