Nets hang out, train with soccer stars in cross-sport summer

New, comments

First it was D’Angelo Russell hanging out with Manchester City’s Leroy Sane’ at the NBA Store last week, then watching him score a goal at MetLife Stadium.

Now, it’s new Net Kenneth Faried practicing and sharing skills with Juventus’ Miralem Pjanic at the Pingry School in Central New Jersey, where club can often be seen. (Hey, Kenneth, you didn’t invite fellow Bosnian Dzanan Musa to New Jersey?)

Get ready for the greatest two-sport alley-oop ever.

Pretty neat stuff and according to reports out of Manchester, Sane’ and Pjanic may be just as much teammates as Russell and Faried. Juventus is reportedly offering Pjanic to ManCity for a cool $100 million.
