Members of the Brooklyn Nets had no time for any ESPYs cameos, and instead continued to work in the early stages of what they hope one day an be categorized as a successful rebuild.

Their developmental day Wednesday consisted of boxing, though, and not basketball. Jeremy Lin, Sean Kilpatrick, Joe Harris and others got into the gym at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.

The Nets donned boxing gloves and got to work on the mitts and hit the speed and heavy bags during their unorthodox work day in Sin City.
