10:17 PM ET 04.27 | The Brooklyn Nets have signed general manager Billy King to a three-year extension. It was thought that owner Mikhail Prokhorov might seek a high-profile candidate, but he appears content to stick with the guy who has the Nets in the playoffs for the first time since the 2006-2007 season. Notable in his tenure is the Joe Johnson trade, which brought the shooting guard in from Atlanta during the last offseason. King also re-signed All-Stars players Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, one of the best frontcourt-backcourt combos in the game. Recently, the Nets fired head coach Avery Johnson in favor of veteran coach P.J. Carlesimo, who is engineering the current playoff run.
