New, comments

Bruce Ratner and Mikhail Prokhorov have "finalized their agreement" on the sale of the Nets. Prokhorov becomes principal owner of the team with 80% of its stock and minority owner of Barclays Center with 45%. "Barclays Center will provide a fantastic home for the Nets," said Prokhorov, who still must be approved by the NBA. Andrei Kirilenko, who played for Prokhorov, predicted, "He is going to be a great owner."
