Oh, how things have changed. A little more than a year ago, the Nets were laying people off and demanding staff take unpaid furloughs because of financial issues. Monday, Bloomberg News reports, Brett Yormark told office staff they will not be laid off or furloughed if there's a lockout. There will be enough work getting the Nets ready for their Booklyn move, he reportedly told the staff.
Nets spokesman Barry Baum declined to comment on the report. Others have already been fined for discussing various aspects of collective bargaining including the possibility of an lockout.
