TheBrooklyn Netsheld open practice at Long Island University’s Steinberg Wellness Center Saturday afternoon. Open practice was full of activities, as the Nets added a scrimmage this year.
With less than a week until preseason and three-and-a-half weeks until the regular season, the Brooklyn Nets gave fans a preview of their players at open practice. Open practice involved some practice drills, a three-quarter scrimmage, a questions & answers session, and a rookie dance-off.
In both the drills and scrimmage, two themes for the Nets became clear: three-point shooting and ball movement. EvenBrook Lopezattempted some threes.
For the scrimmage, the Nets were divided into two teams: one clad in black practice uniforms, the other in white. The black uniform team was led by Atkinson, while the white uniform team was led by lead assistant Jacque Vaughn.
