The Post website reports a new wrinkle in the deal between Bruce Ratner and Mikhail Prokhorov. Quoting sources close to Ratner, it states, "FCR might absorb some Nets employees that work on the business side" such as ticket sales and arena sponsor deals. That would reduce Prokhorov's costs. The White House also had no comment on whether the President talked Nets with Russian President Medvedev last week.
