The Nets have Carolina on their minds.

Perhaps looking to escape some of the expected extra media glare, Brooklyn will conduct its first training camp under new coach Jason Kidd at Duke University, the team announced Wednesday. Following their media session at the Barclays Center on Sept. 30, they'll head down to the Triangle and practice at Duke's campus in Durham, N.C. from Oct. 1-5.

Make that three surgeries on Brook Lopez's right foot.

The Nets announced Monday that their All-Star 7-foot center had a procedure done to replace a screw in his foot. Lopez, who signed a four-year, $60-million deal last offseason, is expected to be back on the basketball court sometime in August, which gives him plenty of time to get himself ready before training camp tips off in October.

But in similar fashion to Kidd, Jackson didn't get seasoning as an assistant coach before landing the Warriors' gig in 2011. Kidd publicly...

Jason Kidd nearly had to pinch himself a few times, all so he could make sure this weeklong whirlwind was actually real.

No doubt, the whole thing of retiring last week after 19 seasons and being named the Nets’ head coach Wednesday night is a little surreal.

“It is,” Kidd said Thursday on the YES Network following his introductory news conference at the Barclays Center. “It’s kind...
