Jarrett Allen said that D'Angelo Russell is going to find him off pick and roll next season.

Interesting. This could be nothing, but hey it's slow today. This could be a sign that Russell could be used on the ball more than the Nets are leading on, and also that Russell could be coming off the bench as the second-unit point guard -- or Allen and Russell could start together. DAR would certainly still get double-digit minutes next to Jeremy Lin and would likely close out games, so we'd view these possibilities as a positive for the former Laker. He's one of our favorite post-hype sleepers in the middle rounds.

Jarrett Allen said the Nets haven't discussed having him play for their G-League affiliate, the Long Island Nets.

It'll be interesting to see how the Nets want to get him minutes. Timofey Mozgov may have the inside track to start, but he probably won't be able to hold it all year. Allen has nice upside as a shot blocker, so he's a solid late-round flier as a specialist.

Tyler Zeller is reportedly finalizing a two-year deal with the Nets.

Zeller will likely serve as the third-string center in Brooklyn, so there's no reason to pay him any attention in fantasy hoops. As a side note, this news should end any speculation of Brooklyn extending an offer to Jared Sullinger.

Free agent Tyler Zeller worked out recently for the Nets.

The Nets have 14 players under contract for next season and are reportedly looking to add a big man with their final roster spot. In addition to Zeller, they have worked out Jared Sullinger as well. Zeller averaged 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.3 minutes over 51 games for the Celtics last season.

The New York Post is reporting that Mikhail Prokhorov is planning on selling all his shares of the Nets.

Prokhorov had originally planned on selling just a 49 percent stake in the franchise but apparently has now decided to part with the team entirely. According to the Post, "the eventual sale of 100 percent of the team has become the primary goal." After the Rockets recently sold for $2.2 billion, Prokhorov believes he can get at least $2 billion.

Timofey Mozgov is expecting D'Angelo Russell to "score a lot" for the Nets next season.

"He’s going to score a lot," Mozgov replied when asked about expectations for D’Angelo Russell. "He’s going to shoot threes a lot because he’s a really, really good shooter." Russell should easily establish himself as the No. 1 option in Brooklyn's offense, and his minutes should regularly eclipse the 30-minute mark for the first time in his career, so he's all set up for a monster season in Brooklyn's up-tempo, 3-point heavy offense. He'll be a popular mid-round pick on draft day.

Allen Crabbe said "it's definitely going to be a bigger role" for him with the Nets.

"I'm going to be able to show a lot more and display a lot of my skill set with my team," Crabbe said. He added he's doing more conditioning this offseason to help his fitness, especially after the Nets led the NBA in pace. He's shaping up to be a sneaky late-round pick in an ideal spot for his skill set.

Jarrett Allen, who missed the Summer League with a hip injury, said he's back working out with teammates and coaches.

This is a sign that he should be good to go for training camp. Allen is in one of the best spots for rookies, as the Nets are rebuilding and his only competition for minutes right now is Timofey Mozgov and his bloated contract. "It’s definitely an opportunity,’’ Allen said. "A lot of rookies aren’t in the same position that I am, to be able to come in and play immediately or gets minutes like I will. So it’s nothing but good for me." A 6'10" big man with a 7'5" wingspan, Allen is a sleeper late in drafts for his shot-blocking prowess and ability to finish around the rim.

Caris LeVert and Sean Kilpatrick have worked out with Steve Nash and Kevin Durant this summer.

Nash is now the Warriors' Player Development Consultant and this was a week-long training program. LeVert has reportedly been very busy this summer and is putting his offseason to good use after he had to get over a foot fracture last summer. The addition of Allen Crabbe does hurt his playing time, but LeVert could still get 22-26 minutes even off the bench.

Timofey Mozgov scored 20 points with five rebounds in a friendly against Hungary on Friday.

He didn't take any 3-pointers for the Russian national team. Mozgov is hopeful he can add that to his game, but it won't be easy. While he was just 7-of-40 from deep in his career, he was 13-of-34 (38.2 percent) on his shots from 20-24 feet over the last three season. He's a terrible fit for the NBA's reigning fastest team, so he's not a great fantasy target.

Nets GM Sean Marks said he believes Allen Crabbe can take his game to "another level."

"He’s got a chip on his shoulder, and he wants to take his game to another level, all-around facets," Marks said. "It’s not just shooting. It’s defense. It’s everything." Crabbe shot 44.4 percent from deep last season which ranked third in the NBA, but he ranked 91st out of 94 shooting guards in defensive real plus-minus and had a dreadful subpar rating of 108.9. He's expected to start at small forward and should be a key contributor on an offense that launched the fourth most triples last season, so he's become a nice option in the later rounds.

Nets sign G Jeremy Senglin.

Like Damian Lillard, Senglin played four years at Weber State with his best year coming in his senior season. The 6'2" Senglin averaged 21.2 points per game with a whopping 3.8 treys per outing, so he can fill it up. The Nets actually traded away the pick that turned out to be Damian Lillard in a deal for Gerald Wallace, so maybe their luck will go in the other direction here. Senglin will need a tremendous camp to make the team.
Aug 4 - 3:51 PM

Nets sign G Milton Doyle.

He is likely just a camp body for the Nets, who now actually have some decent depth on the perimeter. Doyle played four years at Loyola University Chicago with 13.3 points per game.
Aug 4 - 3:47 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will open training camp as the starting power forward according to head coach Kenny Atkinson.

The Nets are loaded with wings, so this is fantastic news for Hollis-Jefferson. He does have some fresh competition in DeMarre Carroll, but RHJ had a lot of success at the four last season and the Nets should prioritize his development. His perimeter shooting is still a major work in progress, but RHJ should be a nice fantasy asset for those targeting steals -- he's averaged 1.8 steals per 36 minutes in his first two seasons.

Jeremy Lin believes that the Nets can make the playoffs next year.

"I still feel like we can make the playoffs. I know everyone will laugh, but that’s not a problem," said Lin. "Hopefully we can perform exceptionally well. Everyone thinks we’ll suck, so I feel like we don’t have a lot of pressure." Lin went on to say that he believes he'll have no issues playing alongside D'Angelo Russell and he thinks the two can share the backcourt with Lin starting at the two-spot.
