Week In Review 8/30/15-9/5/15

Mikhail Prokhorov is reportedly working toward a deal that would give him 100% ownership of both the Nets and the Barclays Center. The would-be arrangement would entail Prokhorov’s company, which already owns 80% of the Nets and 45% of the arena, forgiving the approximately $31MM debt that former majority owner Bruce Ratner’s Forest City Enterprises owes them. Prokhorov and the Guggenheim Partners apparently had talks a year ago about a merging of ownership, months after a report indicated that Prokhorov was listening to offers for the Nets. Those Guggenheim talks were said to have hit a snag, though rumors that Prokhorov had interest in selling the Nets have persisted. Prokhorov has repeatedly downplayed such talk.

Here’s a look back at more news from the week that was…
