Mikhail Prokhorov will be flying across the Atlantic Thursday night, arriving in London Friday morning. The Nets first game vs. the Raptors tips off at 8 p.m. London time (3 p.m. ET). He is expected to meet with the Nets players, as he did in Moscow in October.
Prokhorov's pilots filed a flight plan Thursday morning from Isla Margarita, Venezuela where he's been vacationing. He arrived in the Venezuelan resort last Friday from San Antonio, where he met with Deron Williams. Prokhorov's Gulfstream V won't be the only plane ferrying Russians to the game. A large contingent of Russians are expected to arrive in London Thursday night.
