Here are the teams:

Black: C.J. Watson, MarShon Brooks, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, and Brook Lopez are the starters, with Toko Shengelia, Reggie Evans, Carlton Scott and Jerry Stackhouse on the bench. Mario Elie will serve as coach.

White: Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Josh Childress, Mirza Teletovic and Andray Blatche are the starters, with Keight Bogans, Stephen Dennis and James Mays on the bench. Popeye Jones will serve as coach.

When I asked Nets coach Avery Johnson about how he split the teams up, he said that Popeye and Mario conducted a draft, and he acted as “David Stern,” with a big smile on his face. Before I could get a chance to ask him if he impacted things, he said that he put Williams and Joe Johnson on the same team together, in order to help them continue to build their chemistry and comfort level with one another.

The Nets will practice tomorrow for the first time at Barclays Center.
