Entering Year 2 of their rebuilding project, Nets general manager Sean Marks and coach Kenny Atkinson yesterday expressed excitement about the five new veterans and first-round draft pick they added to the roster, but they admit the gaping hole created by the departure of center Brook Lopez in a trade to the Lakers means the franchise is entering uncharted waters with a drastically different look. The Lopez trade not only netted D’Angelo Russell, the No.
Despite the Nets’ NBA-worst 20-62 record last season, point guard Jeremy Lin said during the offseason that he believes they can make the Eastern Conference playoffs, and several teammates, including first-round pick Jarrett Allen, have expressed confidence they can contend. General manager Sean Marks and coach Kenny Atkinson appreciate the competitive attitude, but they tamped down expectations on Tuesday and said their focus is squarely on the long-term rebuilding process.
Facing a serious height deficit in a thin frontcourt, the Nets on Monday reached agreement on a two-year deal with 7-foot free-agent center Tyler Zeller, according to multiple reports. Zeller becomes the Nets’ only free-agent signing of the summer other than training-camp invitees. The signing first was reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who said the second year of the deal is non-guaranteed, citing league sources.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
