D’Angelo Russell Wants To Move To Manhattan Next Season

D’Angelo Russell wants to move to Manhattan!

Wait, don’t get too upset just yet….

The Brooklyn Nets’ lone All Star this season lives in the borough of Brooklyn and a source shared with me that Russell “wants to live in Manhattan” and wants to sign a big contract with the Nets so that he can upgrade and live in the borough of Manhattan.

“He likes New York,” said the source close to Russell.

The 2nd pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Brooklyn Nets’ point guard is having a great season. Russell is playing great to the tune of 20.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game for a 30-29 Nets team that is in sixth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

“He’s hoping to sign a big contract with Brooklyn this summer,” said another source.

“He just has to stay healthy, stay safe and play good basketball. Everything else should take care of itself.”

The Nets’ core of Russell, Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris are exciting to watch.

“Kenny Atkinson has done a tremendous job,” FS1’s Chris Broussard told me last month on the Scoop B Radio Podcast.

“Everybody, you know, knows their role, everybody plays very hard, those guys are really good. I think they’re going to hold on and make the playoffs and they are making, this is a great recruiting tool or a great recruiting season, I guess, for a free agent because a free agent can look at that situation and say, “man, I go in there and we’re ready to really compete with the top teams in the East.” Now, it will be interesting, obviously, would a guard go there? Obviously you have D’Angelo and Dinwiddie, so they’re, you know, but they’re having a great season and really surprising everyone.” 

The Nets resume play on Thursday when they take on the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland.
