The New Jersey Nets will be playing the 2009-10 season in the Garden State, not in Brooklyn.The team had been planning to play at its new stadium in New York starting with the 2009 season.

But team spokesman Barry Baum told The Record of Bergen County for Thursday's newspapers that the move to Brooklyn won't happen until 2010.

The Nets haven't broken ground on what will be called Barclays Center yet.

Instead, the team will play at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford.
