The Real Deal, a magazine that covers New York real estate, reports unnamed investors have approached Bruce Ratner about "partnering" the Nets with the Devils and moving the team to the Prudential Center in Newark. The investors have allies among the state's politicians, The Real Deal adds. Ratner's response: "The Nets are moving to Brooklyn, period." Still, the economy is putting Brooklyn and a lot of other projects at risk, reports the Wall Street Journal.
