Hey Brooklyn, don’t sleep on the Knicks.

That was coach Mike Woodson’s message from Sin City, where he broke his silence. Woodson said it’s too early to proclaim the Nets have surpassed the Knicks in the Atlantic Division, though that has become the conventional wisdom.

The summer has been sweeter for the Nets, with the bold moves of stealing Jason Kidd from the Knicks to be their head coach and trading for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

The defending Atlantic champions countered by making official their trade for 7-foot enigma Andrea Bargnani yesterday. They also announced the re-signing of point guard Pablo Prigioni and will announce Thursday J.R. Smith, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, has re-signed.

The Knicks, who have little money to spend, still are trying to fill the final fringe spots of their roster (a third point guard, a big man, a small forward).

But the core of the team has been formed, and Woodson likes it.

“I’m not weighing it that way by any means. Bottom line is we still have to play the games,’’ Woodson said Wednesday at UNLV, where the Knicks held a summer-league practice. “Same thing happened last year. People picked us fourth, fifth in our division and we ended up winning our division. Nothing is guaranteed. I like the moves [the Nets] made because Paul and Kevin are two big pieces that can still play. But I like our team. I like we got Bargnani and Pablo and making sure J.R. stays here as well.

“I like the Nets moves. but I like our moves, too. Only time will tell. We got to play it out.’’

Woodson spoke for the first time since May 21 — three days after his team’s second-round ouster by the Pacers. For the Knicks, it was as bitter ending to a 54-win campaign in which they won the Atlantic and were the East’s second seed.

“It was a positive year for our franchise,’’ Woodson said. “Nobody picked us to do a whole lot of anything at the start. We got a lot of things accomplished. Sure, we fell short, but we set the table. The fact we didn’t get to the Eastern Conference finals was a bummer. A lot of people wanted to see that matchup.’’
