Times Sports section: Nets move assumed

Atlantic Yards Report catches The NY Times in another slip-of-the-tongue in yesterday's Sports section:

Still, another early playoff exit would be disappointing for this team and its New Jersey fan base, which could be growing antsy given the Nets’ coming move to Brooklyn.

Since the project hasn't even been officially "approved," AYR suggests the Times use "planned," "expected," even "hoped-for."

UPDATE
The Times published this correction in today's edition:

A sports article yesterday about the Nets’ three main attractions — Vince Carter, Richard Jefferson and Jason Kidd — referred incorrectly to the team’s plans to move to Brooklyn. The team has announced that it will move to an arena to be built as part of the Atlantic Yards development, but because that project has not yet been approved, the move to that particular venue is not a certainty.
