Did you know the D-League has a team in Long Island now? Trevor Cooney does and the former Syracuse Orange guard has signed with the Brooklyn Nets-affiliated squad.

Something about Trevor loose on Long Island feels so right. That said, the team doesn't actually play on Long Island. They play at Barclays Center and use the NBA Nets' facilities for practice. So much for my dreams.
It's the team's inagural season in the D-League so Cooney has the chance to establish himself as a Long Island Net Legend, as was foretold in the scriptures. The team will be coached by Ronald Nored, the 25-year-old former Butler point guard who coached under Brad Stevens on the Boston Celtics as well as with the Maine Red Claws.
Cooney was not expected to be drafted following his SU career and his chances at making an NBA roster seem suspect, but he's getting the only thing he can ask for...a chance.
No word on whether or not brothers Tyler, Terry, Gerry, or Tervor will be joining him in
Long Island Brooklyn.
