Newark mayor pushes for Nets

June 30, 2008 12:17PM

Newark Mayor Cory Booker officially wants the Nets to move to Newark. “The Nets were made for Newark,” he said. “It’s the comeback city. And I think the Nets will be the comeback team in the NBA, and they should do it here.” The Real Deal first reported in April that investors were pushing Nets owner and developer Bruce Ratner to relocate the team to Newark and instead of the Barclays Center, at the Atlantic Yards development. Ratner has maintained that the Nets will move from the Meadowlands to Downtown Brooklyn, not Newark.
