Brooklyn Nets excited to take Barclays Center floor

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

The Nets held their first shootaround at Barclays Center on Monday morning, and they're more than ready to play their first game in Brooklyn.

At shootaround Monday morning, the Nets couldn't contain their excitement about playing their first game at Barclays Center against the Wizards.

"I might shed a tear," Deron Williams said.

"Even though it's a preseason game," Avery Johnson said, "it's still our first game in Brooklyn in the Barclays Center, and that means a lot for so many people."

Johnson will go with the same basic rotation as he played Saturday in Atlantic City, and he'll be hoping for better defense from his second unit. MarShon Brooks is out of his walking boot and has been fitted for orthotics, but he won't play Monday night or Tuesday in Boston. Tyshawn Taylor is also still out.

Andray Blatche will be playing against his old team, the only he ever played for before joining the Nets. Once again, he expressed his gratitude to the Nets for giving him a second chance.
