It's still a long shot, but the New York Islanders could wind up in Brooklyn at the Nets' arena. Bruce Ratner apparently wants another sports tenant in the arena--although none of his presentations to New York officials mention the possibility. The key is what happens in December when Nassau County decides what to do with Nassau Coliseum. If Islander owner Charles Wang doesn't get the development rights to the Coliseum, he may move the team to Brooklyn or sell it.
