Ratner Denies Newark Talks, Governors Spar

Bruce Ratner has emphatically denied any talks with parties looking to buy the Nets and move them to Newark. "The team is very simply not for sale and any stories that suggest or insinuate that we would be interested in listening to those conversations are flat out false," Ratner said. "We are focused on breaking ground on the Barclays Center in Brooklyn later this year and building all of Atlantic Yards, nothing else." Governors of New York and New Jersey each expressed hope the team would wind up in their state.
