Is this the Nets' new logo?

The Nets played their last game Newark, New Jersey on Monday and even with a blowout loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, the game drew a sellout crowd as fans visited to pay their farewells to a franchise they called their own for 35 seasons.

The photo was posted on Twitter by a person who is doing IT work in the brand new Barclay Center and tweeting photos as he works. He either has the clearance to tweet the pictures, or has to be in jeopardy of being fired.

The Nets will play their final regular season game tonight against the Toronto Raptors and a lot of work is to be done in the off-season.

They will try to keep All-Star point guard Deron Williams from leaving via free agency and pair him, possibly, with the likes of All-Star Dwight Howard, whose season is over after having surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back.
