Nets, Israeli Team To Open Rock

The 2010-11 Nets will play their first game at Newark's Prudential Center October 3 vs. Maccabi Haifa, an Israeli team, the team has announced. Maccabi Haifa, owned by New Jersey native Jeffrey Rosen, is currently tied for second place in the Israeli Super League and has been ranked as high as #21 in Europe this season. Only one of its current players has NBA experience: Mamadou N’Diaye, who played for the Clippers. Also on the Maccabi roster: Richard Roby, Kenyon Martin's brother. Maccabi Haifa’s 30-minute magazine show, "Inside Israeli Basketball," is aired monthly on the YES Network.

"We are thrilled to bring Maccabi Haifa to America to play the Nets in a preseason game," said Rosen. "It has been our goal to build Maccabi Haifa into an international brand and playing an NBA team such as the Nets is just another step in the right direction."
