The Brooklyn Nets announced Monday their roster for the 2013 Orlando Pro Summer League, which runs from July 7th through July 12th at the Orlando Magic's practice court in Amway Center. The event is closed to the public.

The most notable name on Brooklyn's roster doesn't belong to one of its players. Newly hired head coach Jason Kidd will take the reins of the Nets' summer squad; typically, head coaches delegate that authority to their assistants, but Kidd's case is anything but typical.
