‘Monster Inc.’ headphone deal not quite the monster Nets hoped for

The Nets are suing Monster Inc, claiming the headphone maker didn’t pay the team sponsorship fees.

As Forbes reports the Nets allege a number of things in their complaint...

The professional relationship between the Nets and Monster began on March 13, 2017, with the execution of a Sponsorship Agreement under which Monster was given the title of “Official Headphone and Speaker Sponsor of the Brooklyn Nets” along with other rights in connection with the Nets, the New York Islanders and Barclays Center as well as exclusivity in the headphone and speaker category in exchange for the payment of annual fees as well as a royalty on net sales from products sold as a direct result of the agreement. The agreement also contained a license allowing Monster to use the Nets and Barclays Center trademarks during the defined term.

It is alleged that Monster failed to make each and every payment due under the agreement despite multiple notices provided concerning the default.

As a result, the Nets wants Monster to pay up $560,000 in damages as well as “additional relief” for the alleged “infringement” of the Nets trademarks and “unfair competition” through continued use of the Nets and Barclays Center brands after it received a cease and desist letter.

Pablo Prigioni, Tiago Splitter join Nets staff

2018-04-24T15:30:17-04:00

Hello, South America. The Nets announced Tuesday that they have added two of South America’s most accomplished players to their staff. Argentina’s Pablo Prigioni has been hired as an assistant coach on Kenny Atkinson’s staff, while Brazil’s Tiago Splitter will join the club as a scout, with “added duties related to player on-court development.” No word if the two will be additions to the staff or will replace those who were on the staff last season. Brian Lewis was first to report the addition of Prigioni, an Argentine playmaker who became somewhat of a New York darling during a brief stint with the Knicks. Ex-#Knicks guard Pablo Prigioni will join the #Nets coaching staff, the Post has learned. #nyk— Brian Lewis (@NYPost_Lewis) April 24, 2018 One thing is certain, Musa is a known quantity. As NBADraft.net points out, there are few players in his draft who have been more heavily scouted than Musa. He has played professionally since he was 16 years old... He was the MVP of the U16 FIBA European Championship in 2015, leading Bosnia and Herzegovina to its first title at national level... He was the leading scorer at the U16 FIBA European Championship in 2014, as well as at the U16 FIBA European Championship in 2015 and at U17 FIBA World Championship in 2016... Also, as we’ve noted, we believe the Nets might buy a late pick in this year’s draft so they can stash some European talent. Our belief is based, in part, on Trajan Langdon’s decision to scout Yussuf Sonan, a 6’4” shooting guard, in Athens last week. The 18-year-old has declared for the Draft, but no draftnik has him higher than No. 70 on their top 100’s. They have $5.1 million which should be more than enough to grab a pick in the 50’s. A 2019 Draft Note... This may be the rare case where it is too early to talk about the Draft, the 2019 Draft that is, the one when the Nets will control of their own pick for the first time since they drafted Mason Plumlee at No. 22 in 2013. Both ESPN and NBADraft.net have their 2019 mocks up. Projecting another eighth place finish for Brooklyn, ESPN has the Nets winding up with 6’11” Daniel Gafford of Arkansas who dropped out of the 2018 Draft while NBADraft.net has Kris Wilkes, a 6’8” small forward who’ll play for UCLA this year, at No. 8. As we’ve noted, the 2019 Draft is seen as weak. Stash Report This hasn’t been the best year for the Nets second round stash from last June. Aleksandar Vezenkov, taken No. 57, became the Jahlil Okafor of Spain this season when, almost inexplicably, F.C. Barcelona’s coach deactivated him after a series of losses. There was some indication the coach wasn’t satisfied with his defense but he didn’t play a minute for two months from October 29 to December 31, 14 games total. Eventually the coach, Sito Alonso, was fired and he got some minutes here and there. Then, suddenly, he’s back in the rotation and producing. The 6’9” Bulgarian shooter, who plays power forward in Europe, played 16 minutes on April 11 in a blowout win, scoring 13 points and going 3-of-4 from deep. Then on Sunday, he played 26 minutes, scored 12 points and added 5 rebounds, shooting 2-of-4 beyond the arc. No word on what the Nets plan to do with him, if anything, this summer. Vezenkov has said he and the Nets will review his status at season’s end. He reportedly has a large NBA buyout of around 1 million euros, which is $1.25 million or roughly double what an NBA team can pay out without dipping into cap space. A player can pick up the difference —as Mirza Teletovic did— or the NBA team can pay out the remainder as a one-time bonus, but again that money counts against the cap. Buyouts can be negotiated down, of course. Meanwhile, in Argentina, Juan Pablo Vaulet, who just turned 22, seems to be finally rid of the after effects of his off-season ankle surgery, his third since being drafted by the Nets in 2015. Over the last eight games in the Argentine National Basketball Leagu[...]
