This is a solid move for a team that has a new coaching staff, and saw a major overhaul at the top of their roster with the arrival of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, and Andrei Kirilenko. These new pieces acclimating to a new system will be integral to the Nets’ early season success.
The Brooklyn Nets will hold training camp for the 2013-14 season on the campus of Duke University…
“With many new players and a new staff, going on the road for training camp will offer a unique opportunity for our players to bond and focus solely on basketball as they prepare for this season.” said King. “Duke University offers first class basketball facilities and will provide an optimum training environment for our team.”
The East is stacked at the top with the returning champs, Miami Heat, plus the Pacers, a healthy Bulls squad, and the New York Knicks. Expectations are high on this group so they can’t afford to sputter out of the gate. A strong start is almost a must.
