Prokhorov a hardliner among team owners? No, acknowledges reporter who called him that

Atlantic Yards Report

Earlier this month, Ken Berger of CBSSports.com called principal Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov a "hardliner" among owners, happy to lose a season.

He's changed his tune, suggesting Prokhorov needs the season to start so he can keep star guard Deron Williams. Then again, as noted by NetsDaily, it's in Williams' financial interest to stay either way.
