NBA Draft 2017: Where to watch, what to watch, who to watch

NBA Draft 2017: Where to watch, what to watch, who to watch

The 2017 NBA Draft is tonight, and while the Nets have already made a major splash prior to the draft, in trading Brook Lopez to the Lakers in a deal that includes D’Angelo Russell, there is still plenty to keep an eye on at tonight’s draft. A little housekeeping, while I have you. We’ll be LIVE at the Nets’ practice facility with our guy Dexter Henry and Bryan Fonseca hosting a Facebook Live video with full reporting. Make sure to follow us on Facebook to find the live video. We’ll share the link, too, when it’s live. Anthony Puccio will be at the Barclays Center reporting...

Did Nets promise D.J. Wilson? And is promise still good?

Did Nets promise D.J. Wilson? And is promise still good?

In his latest mock draft, published about 8 a.m., Chad Ford writes that the Nets may have made a promise to 6’11” Michigan power forward D.J. Wilson. The word around the NBA is that the Nets promised Wilson they'd take him. Whether that was at No. 27 (the pick they traded to the Lakers this week) or here is unclear. Given that they just traded Brook Lopez (and because Timofey Mozgov is ... unreliable), a center like Bradley or Pasecniks makes sense here. However, Wilson could become a stretch-4 who pairs nicely with D'Angelo Russell. Don't count out Ferguson here, either. The Nets have...

Nets Draft 2017: Draft Night Wonders and Blunders

Did someone say "surprise?" Take a look at 16 years of history below. If they pull one off, it will add to the Nets' Draft Night lure. It’s filled with wonders and blunders, like most teams, with the exception of the Spurs who never seem to screw up! And who came from the Spurs?! Hope springs eternal! 2000: The Nets got lucky (winning the lottery at 25-1 odds) and unlucky (the worst draft in the last 20 years). Then, during workouts, Kenyon Martin collapsed after three or four plays, an indicator that he was either unhappy about the prospect of playing for the woeful Nets or his leg was...

Your regular update of Kristaps Porzingis trade rumors and Charley Rosen propaganda

Basketball is dumb, and we’re all dumb for liking it. Happy Draft Day, y’all! The Knicks have a lottery pick this year, so this should be a glorious day for the fans, right? LOL, nah. We now have to wade through mounds of Kristaps Porzingis trade rumors. Until recently it appeared as if the Knicks were simply answering the phone when other teams called about the Unicorn, which is fine. Alas, it turns out they are more actively shopping their franchise cornerstone to teams higher in the draft. Per @ramonashelburne: the Knicks have talked to each team in top-5 of the draft about a...

The 13th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft may have played his last game as a member of the Boston Celtics.

Kristaps Porzingis being shopped may not be such a bad thing

The trade rumors are frustrating and concerning, but it may not be a bad thing that Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks are shopping Kristaps Porzingis. This isn’t going to be a popular opinion, but if Phil Jackson was sincere in his attempts to gauge interest for Kristaps Porzingis, that might not be such […] Kristaps Porzingis being shopped may not be such a bad thing - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Final Mock Draft Survey: And the winner is...

Harry Giles, the easiest name to pronounce in the Draft, and Anzejs Pasecniks, the most difficult. Both bigs were linked to the Nets in four mocks each, out of 18. Giles, of course, is the embodiment of risk/reward. Coming out of high school last year, the 6’11” center was seen as a top lottery pick, maybe even overall No. 1, but his third ACL surgery early in his freshman year, continuing worries about structural issues in his kness and an underwhelming performance at Duke hurt his stock. In just the last three days, he dropped from No. 17 to No. 26 in the Draft Express mock. ...

CelticsBlog Roundtable: who should the Celtics target with their three 2nd rounders?

With the new CBA adding two-way contracts to a team’s roster and the G-League becoming an avenue to develop players, nailing these second round picks has become a vital piece in franchise building. Keith Smith: Alec Peters of Valparaiso. He's a good shooting big who projects as a stretch 4 in the NBA. Given the Celtics will likely need to fill out the rotation, Peters could come in and give the team a lot of what they got from Jonas Jerebko the last few years. Alex Kungu: Ivan Rabb from Cal. For those of you who watched Jaylen Brown in college the name should be familiar, Rabb was the...

The NBA Draft is tonight. Let’s talk about it. The day is finally here. The NBA Draft happens tonight and the Celtics currently have the 3rd pick. They used to have the 1st pick but they traded it. There’s already rumors out there that they could trade down (to pick Dennis Smith Jr.), ...or trade for an established star (like Jimmy Butler or Paul George), ...or trade for a rising star (like Kristaps Porzingis). Or maybe they’ll just stay where they are and draft Jayson Tatum or Josh Jackson or maybe even Jonathan Isaac. As usual, tune in early and often to CelticsBlog for rumors,...

2017 NetsDaily Draft Roundtable - The Pre-DLoading Edition

Alas, this year, we called for answers too early. A lot of our writers turned in their responses to Reed Wallach’s questions before the Nets traded Brook Lopez and the 27th pick for D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov. So take a look knowing that we didn’t know but knowing there’s still some wisdom, we hope, that can be derived. Everything changes on Draft Night, but this year, everything changed two days before. 1. What is the biggest need for the Nets to address in the Draft? Net Income: Shooters.

With D’Angelo Russell in the house, expect Nets to go big

As Greg Logan writes on the morning of Draft Day, D’Angelo Russell is the Nets’ top pick of the 2017 NBA Draft. The 6’5” combo guard out of Ohio State is only 21. Of the 60 prospects or so worked out by the Nets since May, at least 40 of them are younger that Russell. And the Nets know what Russell can do. The Draft Thursday night at Barclays Center may not be anti-climactic but barring some other shock, acquiring a player who can man the 1 or the 2, score, pass, defend is a huge accomplishment for Sean Marks and company. So what to expect? Just as Marks kept the Laker trade talks...

Jeremy Lin texting D’Angelo Russell ... and seeing possibilities

Brian Lewis caught up with Jeremy Lin —and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson— Wednesday at Steve Nash’s soccer charity, held this year at Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Manhattan. Apatently, the first thing Lin wanted to talk about was the chemistry developing between him and D’Angelo Russell, acquired in a trade Tuesday. “I’ve always loved two combo guards playing together. I’ve always been an advocate of that, whether it’s me playing alongside Patrick Beverley or playing alongside Kemba [Walker],” Lin told The Post. “Me and Kemba’s pairing was the most fun I’ve had. “Playing...

Lakers Trade Rumors: Knicks have discussed Kristaps Porzingis trade with Lakers

The Knicks are getting in on the offseason madness. The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t the only team looking to trade developing NBA Draft lottery talents. The New York Knicks have discussed trading Kristaps Porzingis with the Lakers and all teams with top-five selections in the 2017 NBA Draft, reports Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. Shelburne’s report follows up a stunning interview Knicks president Phil Jackson held on MSG Network Wednesday evening. Jackson outright confirmed that New York has been receiving calls regarding Porzingis’ availability, and that the franchise is “listening”...

Phil Jackson opened his big, fat mouth again

Everyone is expendable. The front office knows what they’re doing. The Knicks have always been at war with Eastasia. For Knicks fans, the eight scariest words in the English language are “Phil Jackson sits down for an exclusive interview.” One day—one freakin’ day—before the NBA Draft, as fans grow ever more giddy with visions of future All-Stars, the team president just had to go and sit down with Al Trautwig, to assuage the terrified masses. "I think we know what we're doing,” he reassured. Yeah...about that. To Trautwig’s credit, he pulled few punches, asking Jackson...
