Nets, Islanders sue health clinic for nearly $2M in unpaid sponsorships

The Brooklyn Nets and New York Islanders are taking a chain of health clinics to court — and seeking nearly $2 million for broken contracts, according to a new lawsuit.

The Nets and an Islanders-related events company entered into a series of 10-year sponsorship deals with ProHEALTH Corp. worth $3.4 million in 2014 — with the health company paying for “sponsorship, promotional and other rights” at the Nets training facility and the Barclays Center during certain Islanders events, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed Monday.

But the Lake Success, NY, health company stopped paying their quarterly fees in October 2018, and is now refusing to pay up — despite repeated requests from the Nets and the Islanders’ company Brooklyn Events Center LLC, court papers allege.
