There had long been rumors about the Barclays Center lease, now having this confirmed will add fuel to the fire for those who think the team may come back one day.
While I still don't think they will come back, this does add a wrinkle to things. I wouldn't get your hopes up of the Barclays Center people opting out of the deal, however, crazier things have happened I guess.
