Nets official to Record: Brooklyn move won't happen

The leaks coming out of the basketball firmament just keep coming. Ian O'Connor, a columnist for the Bergen Record, writes that the Nets will stay in New Jersey, quoting Gov. Jon Corzine and finding a team official:
One longtime Nets’ official, a man who’s made big management decisions in the past, is telling people that the move to Brooklyn will never, ever happen. "Bruce just won’t end up with the money to do it," the official said. "Forget it."

O'Connor doesn't predict whether they would stay in the Meadowlands or move to Newark. Still, he concludes:
What are the chances of a second marriage between [superfan Frank] Capece and the Nets by 2010?

Better than the team’s chances of landing the eighth playoff seed next spring.
