Ratner says team will move mid-season, but Times says June 2012

Developer Bruce Ratner said yesterday in a statement that "the intent [is] that the Nets will play ball in the Barclays Center in the 2011-2012 NBA Season."

The New York Times reported today:
The developer expects that it will take about 28 months to build the arena, enabling the Nets to move from East Rutherford, N.J., to Brooklyn around June 2012.
The season's over by then.

So if the Nets move to Newark as an interim stop on an expected transfer to Brooklyn, that would mean two years at the Prudential Center.

Arena architects had said construction would take 26 months. But AY timing is always dicey.
