As part of the NBA’s Global Games initiative, the Nets will play the Kings in a pair of preseason contests in China. They’ll meet Oct. 12 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai and Oct. 15 at MasterCard Center in Beijing, some nine months after the Nets beat the Hawks 127-110 in London in regular season...

Apparently, Kevin Garnett's back is still bothering him.

The Nets announced Tuesday that the 37-year-old veteran won't be traveling with the team to Miami, meaning he'll miss his seventh straight game because of back spasms when the Nets meet the Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday.

Andrei Kirilenko, who also sat out Monday's 101-97 win over the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — As expected, Jason Collins isn’t going anywhere.

In a move that had been anticipated for days, the Nets officially announced Wednesday that they’ve inked the 12-year veteran to a second 10-day contract. Collins has given the Nets some added frontline depth and they may need it Wednesday night when they host the Grizzlies at the Barclays Center since Kevin Garnett will...

Jason Kidd jotted down notes in a pad when he played in Dallas under Rick Carlisle for four seasons, winning a NBA title with him in 2011.

So the Nets coach learned a few things from Carlisle and he’ll get the chance Friday night to show how much the pupil has picked up from the teacher.

LONDON -- Some news notes and quotes from Nets practice at Imperial College on Tuesday:

-- Jason Kidd said Deron Williams, who didn’t make the trip, is “going through his rehab and we’ll see where he’s at when he gets back.” Kidd wouldn’t commit to Williams playing against the Knicks on Monday, saying he’ll take it “day-by-day.” Asked if Williams is frustrated, Kidd said: “He wants to be with...

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Andray Blatche had the touch going in Saturday night's win over the Grizzlies, canning 7 of 10 attempts and pouring in 20 points.

But look deeper into the box score at the three-point column and those numbers look a little funny. That's because Blatche netted a career-high three triples, a case of him really stretching the defense and a Grizzlies' front line that was without...

With all apologies to Allen Iverson, whose retirement tour brought him to the Barclays Center last Friday for the Nets’ tilt with the Heat, we’re talking about practice here.

In the aftermath of Sunday’s debacle in Orlando, when a bunch of zombies seemed to be masquerading around in black Brooklyn uniforms, the Nets say they ramped things up a notch or two or three in Monday’s practice. That,...
