Likely, it's to make up for the revenue lost when the Isles move to Brooklyn. With both the Nets and the Isles occupying the Barclays almost every night from October until April (and hopefully later), there won't be many open days for concerts, the circus, ice shows, etc. Those events will likely take place at the Coliseum as that building will have the availability. That's somewhat good news for Nassau taxpayers.
