EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Mikhail Prokhorov is interested in hearing from potential buyers for the Brooklyn Nets, but a spokesperson for the Russian billionaire said Tuesday no sale is imminent.As we have said for many months, ownership is always open to listening to offers thats just good business, Ellen Pinchuk said in a statement. There is nothing imminent in terms of a sale of any stake in the team.That came in response to a report earlier Tuesday from Bloomberg News, citing two people with direct knowledge of the matter, that Prokhorov had retained Evercore Partners to sell the team.Prokhorov bought 80 per cent of the team and 45 per cent of Barclays Center in Brooklyn in 2010. He said earlier this season he was willing to listen to offers for a minority share of the club but wouldnt sell his majority stake.He had set a goal of winning a championship within five years, but the Nets have gotten nowhere close despite the NBAs highest payroll. They are 16-22 this season, losers of six straight, a season after ESPN.com reported that the Nets basketball operations department lost $144 million.Prokhorov downplayed those losses when he last met with reporters before the Nets home opener in November. But he would have little problem making all of it back and more if he did sell at a time when franchise values are soaring, topped by the $2 billion Steve Ballmer paid for the Los Angeles Clippers last summer.Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he had just returned from a family vacation and didnt know what was happening with the Nets, but that owning an NBA team was difficult.It could be the ruble, it could be political issues (in Russia), he said in Sacramento before the Mavericks played the Kings.But its tough and its not an easy business. We all come in making promises of what we are going to do. Well, it took me 12 years to do what I said I was going to do, Cuban added. Its just not easy and sometimes it gets frustrating.___Associated Press writer Antonio Harvey in Sacramento, California, contributed to this report. Cheap Air Max Uk Sale . LOUIS -- The St. Nike Air Max Discount Uk .Y. -- Dwane Casey admitted hed been concerned about his young Raptors team who had zero experience playing in close-out games -- what awaited them with the vastly-experienced Brooklyn Nets, and how theyd react. http://www.ukairmax.com/. 1 overall pick in the draft by the Houston Texans, is recovering from sports hernia surgery.

Wood beat Cincinnati for the first time in his career, repeatedly pitching out of threats for seven innings, and Chicago stalled the Reds week-long surge with a 2-0 victory Monday night. Wholesale Air Max Uk .com) - Sergio Agueros 63rd-minute goal was enough to lift Manchester City to a 1-0 win over 10-man Manchester United on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.Sky Sports News HQs Anton Toloui explains the proposed changes to the Champions League. What are the proposed changes?Basically, the tournament will start with a knockout competition instead of the group stage. So 32 teams entering the tournament will start with a two-legged tie, which will act as a play-off for a place in the new mini-league. And what is this mini-league?The last 16 teams remaining will be separated into two leagues of eight. Each team will play each other home and away, so each team will play 14 games.What does this mean for the bigger clubs?Traditional Champions League contenders from Europes big leagues will be delighted if this proposal is accepted. It will mean seven guaranteed home games potentially against fellow sides from Europes Big 5 leagues. That will result in increased ticket revenue and more people watching on TV around the world. Manchester Uniteds Wayne Rooney holds up the Champions League trophy Is TV the big reason for the change?Theres no doubting international TV markets have a huge impact on the clubs. Teams in Europe are concerned about trying to compete with Premier League teams when their new TV deal kicks in next season - this will help soften the blow. A mini-league format should mean more games involving the bigger clubs week-in, week-out, which means the next Champions League TV deal will be easier to sell to markets around the world.So bad news for the smaller clubs then?On the face of it, the chances of an extended European campaign for clubs outside the Big 5 leagues look diminished. However, romantics will point out that a win over two legs in the first round could guarantee 14 matches against some of Europes biggest teams. The problem there is we still dont know when teams from various countries will enter the competition. Also, a re-jigged, larger team-friendly tournament will be easier for UEFA to sell to foreign TV markets. That means more money for all of the clubs taking part, so the smaller teams could come out of this richer too. Pep Guardiola kisses the trophy after Barcelonas victory Im confused.dddddddddddd So its a good thing for them then?In purely footballing terms, probably not. One thing that isnt apparent is how many rounds teams will have to go through until they reach the new group stage. That may depend on UEFAs complicated coefficient system but some sides will inevitably have to play multiple two-legged ties before qualifying for the group stage. Another element that is up for debate is exactly when the top teams will enter the competition. Bigger clubs will always want as much protection as possible and will push to enter the tournament as late as possible.So is this to combat talk of a European Super League?Yes and no. Big clubs want to play each other more often in order to maximise revenue and gain maximum exposure. But there are many critics of the current Champions League format, with the current eight groups of four teams system often leading to obvious results as top seeds tend to play one or two smaller teams every year. The hope is that this would make the tournament more exciting by placing more evenly matched teams against each other on a regular basis and by increasing the number of knock-out games early on. CL changes discussed UEFA is in talks with clubs to change the format of the Champions League So when could we see change?No changes to the competition can take place before the 2018-19 season, when the current international TV deals expire. The bidding process for the next set of contracts start at the end of the year, so UEFA will want this matter agreed by then with September a date mooted.
