Nets Considering Signing Donatas Motiejunas

Motiejunas is visiting with the Nets and undergoing a physical.

Mikhail Prokhorov said he’s hired Allen & Co. to find a local minority investor for the Brooklyn Nets.

Prokhorov in a statement didn’t say how much of the team he’s looking to sell.

“My goal in seeking a local minority partner is to further strengthen the team’s New York presence in order to expand upon our business and community relationships,” he said. “I’m committed to the Nets and will remain the majority owner of the team.”

Prokhorov consolidated ownership of the team and its arena, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The purchase from Bruce Ratner’s Forest City Enterprises Inc. valued the team at $875 million and the arena at $825 million, including debt.

Nets Could Be Open To Trading Brook Lopez Before Deadline

Nov 4, 2016 4:22 PM

The Brooklyn Nets are reportedly open to moving Brook Lopez before the trade deadline, according to rival executives.

Lopez is the Nets' most tradable asset and he is signed through the 17-18 season.

Lopez has dealt with foot issues in the past but he's been healthy more recently and the shorter length remaining on his contract decreases the risk for a rival team.

While the Nets aren't necessarily shopping Lopez, they are opportunistically listening to offers.
