There are many new faces in Brooklyn this season, and the team's training camp at Duke University October 1-5 will mark the first real chance for them to get together and work out on the court - but the 2013-14 Nets are already getting a chance to bond off the court as well.

That bonding began when Deron Williams organized a players-only workout program in California, and continued in mid-September when Williams held his Dodge Barrage charity dodgeball event in New York City to support the Point of Hope Foundation, his charity that benefits autism awareness.

Before they played a few rounds of dodgeball at Basketball City, several of the 2013-14 Nets chatted with, and in the above video, you can see what they had to say about how their team chemistry is already developing and what it's like to play on a team with a mesh of future Hall of Famers, past NBA champions and strong young talent.

For more information on Deron Williams' Point of Hope Foundation, you can visit his website at, and for photos of the event, be sure to like YES Network on Facebook and visit the album here.
