New Jersey Nets move to Brooklyn “will happen” in 2011

Sports Business International ran an item reiterating Nets CEO Brett Yormark's assertions to Bloomberg News that the move to Brooklyn "will happen" and that, "We’ll be there for the 2011-2012 season. We’ve pre-sold 20 per cent of our suites. We’ve got eight of our 14 founding partnerships already completely signed. Next week, we’ll announce our ninth.”


NoLandGrab: Since the Nets "pre-sold" 20% of the suites last year (that is if you're inclined to believe the marketing wunderkind), you gotta assume that means they've sold no suites in recent months. Besides, things must be pretty slow when your big announcement will be a ninth "founding partner."
