Nets holding workouts in LA
By Ian Begley
Training camp doesn't start for another six weeks or so, but the Brooklyn Nets are getting things going early this year.
Most Nets are in Los Angeles this week for player-organized workouts, a source confirmed to ESPNNewYork's Mike Mazzeo.
Deron Williams put the workouts together.
Williams told the New York Daily News that the only players not attending workouts are Andray Blatche, Reggie Evans, Mirza Teletovic, Tornike Shengelia and Andrei Kirilenko.
It's fairly common for NBA teams to organize players-only workouts before training camp.
Both the Knicks and Nets did so last season.
Word leaked about the workouts on Saturday when rookie Mason Plumlee tweeted on Saturday night that he was in Los Angeles getting ready.
SNY's Josh Newman first reported details about the workouts.
