Isles to Brooklyn? Nets' Ratner would like it

September, 15, 2011

In an interview with Bloomberg TV today, New Jersey Nets minority owner Bruce Ratner expressed interest in having the New York Islanders as tenants in the Barclays Center.

"I would hope that's possible," Ratner said in the interview. "It depends on a lot of things. It depends on whether the Islanders want to come. It depends on whether they have different choices."

Ratner said he doubts a new arena will be built in Nassau County due to the current state of the economy. "So I certainly think there's a chance."

The Islanders to Brooklyn? What do you think?
