Barclays Center GM Replaced

For the second time in 18 months, Barclays Center has seen a change at the top of its management structure. Sports Business Journal reports John Sparks, brought in to run the arena in May 2011, is out, replaced by David Anderson, one of his deputies. Sparks replaced Alex Diaz after Diaz joined MSG in March 2011. Sparks decided to "go in a different direction" and left New York a month ago, Brett Yormark told SBJ. The change is not expected to affect the arena construction timetable.

Another Sellout

Brett Yormark has announced via Twitter that for the second consecutive game, the Nets have sold out the Prudential Center.

Yormark Remembers

Here's a message to those who doubt Brett Yormark: The Nets CEO has a very long memory. SI's Chris Mannix writes about the Barclays Center boxing deal with Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Productions. Specifically, Mannix reports on how the LA-based promoter got the inside track and how one Brooklyn promoter got his nose out of joint. Lou DiBella is upset he's been left out of the deal. Of DiBella, Yormark says, ""He's a naysayer who never thought the Barclay Center would ever happen. Right or wrong, he stood on principle waiting for a phone call. Golden Boy saw the opportunity and seized it."
