The Atlantic Yards Report has this post quoting Mayor Booker regarding the Nets.
“Let me tell you exactly what I think is going to happen,” Booker continued. “I believe the project in Brooklyn is not going to work and not going to go forward. I believe the team’s going to be put up for sale. I think there’s going to be a national competition for it, because people want the team, from Seattle to New Jersey. I think New Jersey cannot afford to lose the Nets, so we’re working double time to make sure that, when that opportunity comes, it’s bought by New Jersey investors with the intention of putting the team in Newark.”
Well there you have it from the Soothsayer of Newark… Mayor Corey Booker.
