On Monday, the Brooklyn Nets returned to the gym for their 2018-19 season, their sixth in Brooklyn and third at HSS Training Center. It was Media Day. Players were all dressed up, ready to go.
Then, on Tuesday, the team actually took to the court and participated in Day 1 of training camp, a week-long grind before they take to the Barclays Center court next Wednesday for their first preseason game vs. the Knicks.

Once the doors were open to the media, it was time to look around and check out who’s been doing their homework in the off-season. DeMarre Carroll showed what he’s been working on.

We also got a brief look at some new additions, like rookies Rodions Kurucs and Theo Pinson, along with versatile forward Treveon Graham, all of whom look to crack the 15-man roster.
Another Net looking to crack the roster is newly signed forward Nuni Omot, who agreed to an Exhibit-10 deal with the Nets, announced right before camp opened Tuesday.

Omot is a 6’9” stretch 4 from Baylor – like former Net Quincy Acy – who worked out as camp wound down. Athletic and a deep shooter, Omot was of course camped out at the three-point line.
