Nets Sale May Be Close as Ratner Tries to Raise Capital

With Nets finances reeling, Bruce Ratner appears ready to sell the team or at least a big part of it...but any new owner must follow him to Brooklyn. Dave D'Alessandro reports that in addition to suitors previously mentioned--Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov and former NYMEX chairman Vinny Viola--Terry Semel, the former Yahoo! CEO, is also interested. Ratner met with Prokhorov (left) in Moscow last week.
