#Nets start their season vs. #Wizards 7PM EST YES Tonight! Deron Williams, rookie Marshon Brooks, new addition Mehmet Okur, tough nose DeShawn Stevenson and recently re-signed Kris Humphries will take on the Washington Wizards and John Wall tonight for the season opener! The Nets are sure improving with upgrades and trades before their switch to the Brooklyn Nets in the 2012-13 season! Check out their bios below! The Nets will also be wearing new “Classic Red White and Blue” jerseys tonight!
Deron Williams (pic above) was traded from the Jazz in late February 2011. He is one of the top five point guards in the league and just returned from his stint in Turkey from the NBA lock-out. He averaged 20 ppg and 10 apg last season.
Marshon Brooks was the #25 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Providence! He was 4-6 with 10 points and 3 TO’s in an exhibition against the Knicks.
Nets acquired big man Mehmet Okur on Thursday evening from the Utah Jazz in exchange for a second round draft pick in 2015! The 6-foot-11 C Okur will make $10.8 million this season, in what is the final year of his contract. Okur owns career averages of 13.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in 617 NBA games with Detroit and Utah. – espn
Nets signed DeShawn Stevenson on Wednesday evening for one year worth $2.5 Million! He is a tough nose player, that can put fire under your squad.
