The Daily News reports Bruce Ratner explored selling control of the Nets to a group of investors "within the past year". The story provides no details on the investors. The talks did not extend to selling the Nets' planned arena in Brooklyn. It's owned by a separate entity but controlled by the same people who own the team. "The story isn't true. I don't know what else to say. It's not true," a Ratner spokesman said.
