07:34 AM ET 04.14 | The final official hurdle for the Nets move to Brooklyn was cleared Friday, when the NBA's Board of Governors unanimously approved the team's relocation across the Hudson River to the Barclays Center, where the team will begin play this fall. The Nets will waste no time officially transforming the look of the team. With the season set to end Thursday, April 26 in Toronto now that the team has been eliminated from postseason play, the name change will become official on Monday, April 30. In addition, the team will be rolling out its Brooklyn log and color scheme in the days before the name change.

Does anyone know what the name is going to be yet? Was there some sort of "fan" vote or something?

They should move Avery Johnson out as they move the new logo and name in. He's a terrible coach and there is no good reason he should any longer have a head coaching job.
