Shoestring licorice? You could use thin icing to change the color, but it would work for tying together to make a net.

Question: Do you want the basketball net to use for games or do you want the net as part of the cake? If as part of the cake, I would weave a net from shoestring licorice, then cut out the center from a appropriately colored paper plate. Lay the woven net on a large cake plate, put the paper rim on top and set the basketball shaped cake in the center(as if it is going through the hoop)
