The Nets will begin their long awaited move to Brooklyn next month, with the business side of the operation heading for Bruce Ratner's MetroTech complex, one subway stop or a 15 minute walk from Barclays Center. The team subleased a whole floor, 35,000 square feet, at 15 MetroTech Center for 150 Nets and arena staff. The team's lawyers moved to MetroTech last year.

The team's basketball operations will remain in East Rutherford, NJ, for at least another year and a half. The team will practice there at the PNY Center until a new training facility is built in New York or possibly New Jersey. There will be a small practice court and office space for Billy King and Avery Johnson at Barclays Center, where the team is expected to open the 2012-13 season.
