The 2011–12 New Jersey Nets season was the 45th season of the franchise, their 36th in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and their 35th and final season in New Jersey before moving to Brooklyn, New York and changing their name to the Brooklyn Nets for the 2012–13 season. The Nets finished 22–44, last in the Atlantic Division and 12th overall in the Eastern Conference and failed to make the playoffs for a fifth consecutive season. Point guard Deron Williams led the team in scoring (21.0), assists (8.7), and minutes per game (36.3) and was the team's lone selection in the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. Forward Kris Humphries led the team with 11.0 rebounds and 1.19 blocks per game and games played (62).

Due to the 2011 NBA lockout negotiations, the programmed pre-season schedule, along with the first two weeks of the regular season were scrapped, and a two-game pre-season was set for each team once the lockout concluded.

Injuries[edit]

  • Brook Lopez had a fracture in his right foot during the pre-season that required surgery and ended up missing the first 32 games of the regular season.[3] He returned on February 19, 2012 and played five games before twisting his right ankle, an injury that ultimately aggravated the previous one sustained before the regular season. The Nets decided to place him on the injured list for the remainder of the season.[4]
  • Shawne Williams had surgery on February to remove bone fragments from his left foot and missed the remainder of the season.[5]
  • On February 8 Keith Bogans fractured his left ankle and tore his deltoid ligament in a game against the Detroit Pistons and missed the remainder of the season.[6]
  • Damion James had surgery on his right foot and was out for the season after playing in seven games.[7]

Many players signed with teams from other leagues due to the 2011 NBA lockout. FIBA allows players under NBA contracts to sign and play for teams from other leagues if the contracts have opt-out clauses that allow the players to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.[8] The Chinese Basketball Association, however, only allows its clubs to sign foreign free agents who could play for at least the entire season.[9]
