"another push to demonstrate they are serious about leaving New Jersey in 2010," according to Maura McDermott of the Newark STAR-LEDGER. Nets President & CEO Brett Yormark said that the opening of the showroom "kicks off the Nets' public effort to market 130 suites with an average price tag of $300,000, as well as 3,200 premium seats." Yormark: "The Barclays Center showroom is one more validation that we're alive and well and we're going to Brooklyn." New Jersey officials and Devils Owner Jeff Vanderbeek earlier this month indicated that they were seeking to bring the Nets to the Prudential Center in Newark, but Yormark dismissed the idea and said the Prudential Center is "of no interest to us." The showroom Thursday night for its launch hosted a party for "more than 120 people, including dozens of corporate" CEOs, as well as Nets investor Jay-Z. Nets VP/PR Barry Baum said that Jay-Z is "considering buying a suite" (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 5/16).
