Deadlines and Commitments - LXXII

The countdown to Brooklyn is on. The Nets are seven weeks away from running out onto the Barclays Center floor for the first time to face the Wizards in a preseason game, and a little more than two months from Opening Night vs. the Knicks. Workers at the arena are going 24/7. In other words, the nine-year wait for Brooklyn is nearly over.

Between now and then, the team's four Euro's will be playing in the FIBA Eurobasket Qualifying Tournament, MarShon Brooks and C.J. Watson will be traveling to Moscow and Johannesburg for Basketball Without Borders and, oh yeah, the team will be unveiling their new uniforms.
