Even without Dwight Howard, Brooklyn owner Mikhail Prokhorov is apparently content. After all the serious wheeling and dealing by the Nets management team of GM Billy King & asst. GM Bobby Marks, he issued the following statement:
"I'm thrilled with the way our team has come together. My congratulations and appreciation go out to General Manager Billy King, Assistant General Manager Bobby Marks and Head Coach Avery Johnson for their tenacity, nerve and heart throughout this process. With the re-signing of Deron Williams and the trade for Joe Johnson, we go into our new home led by an All-Star backcourt and with every hope of a great season for the Brooklyn Nets. I can't wait until opening night."
