Nets' London Matchups Jeopardized

The Nets are scheduled to play the Magic twice in London this March, their second straight foray into international basketball since Mikhail Prokhorov bought the team with the intention of making them a global brand.  Now, with the lockout eating up games, that initiative seems threatened.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that with every passing day, the possibility of London fans watching Dwight Howard (no matter which side he plays on) dims.  The NBA has scheduled four off-days for both teams on either side of the London Games, but once the lockout is settled, that layoff would be a prime candidate to be dumped and filled with games in the US.
