The off-season grades keep rolling in (even though the final exams have yet to be turned in) and the Nets remain at the head of the class. In the latest, The Sporting News and local reporters in Arizona and Michigan like what the Nets have done and CBS Sports credits the "Mad Russian" for making the summer interesting.

Summing it up, Sean Deveney of the Sporting News puts the Nets at the top of his winners list. "They didn’t get Dwight Howard, and they committed oodles of money to players other teams might not have touched, but considering this franchise entered the offseason without a firm commitment from free-agent point guard Deron Williams, the fact that Williams is still on board counts as a huge win."

Matt Moore of CBS Sports, looks in particular at Mikhail Prokhorov's spending. "The new CBA was supposed to force big-spending teams to reconsider their approach. It seems to have worked ... unless you're Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov."
