Nets Warming to Newark as Temporary Home

The Star-Ledger reports Nets are warming to the idea of playing next season at "The Rock"...but such an arrangement would require a change in the team's lease at the IZOD. Under its current lease, the team can leave at any point for Brooklyn, but if it moves to Newark, there's an $8 million penalty. The Nets hope to break ground in Brooklyn in December. Arena construction could take as little as 26 months.
