Draft Watch No. 10 - Amid Rumors, New Mocks Posted

Rumors are engulfing everyone’s Draft Board as teams above or near the luxury tax threshold are trying to dump big salaries and teams below the cap are looking for picks to take them on. According to scattered reports, the Cavaliers may be willing to trade the eighth pick for cap relief, the Nuggets the 14th. The Hawks with three first rounders would like to get rid of their big contracts, too. And the Nets are making and taking calls, in multiple conversations, we are told. Expect the rumor mill to heat up Wednesday and then explode on Thursday. And some of the rumors will actually...

Will Nets bring another Brooklyn boy home?

Will Nets bring another Brooklyn boy home?

Our Bryan Fonseca recently caught up with Brooklyn-born NBA prospect Rawle Alkins. Alkins worked out with the Nets last year and has been one of many on their radar.   It happened before, two years ago to be exact. When the Nets made Isaiah Whitehead the 42nd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Coney Island product became the first Brooklyn born baller to call the Barclays Center home at the NBA level. Rawle Alkins – a Canarsie native who once attended Christ the King High School in Middle Village, Queens – could be next. Alkins initially entered the NBA Draft last year after his...

Brooklyn Nets 2018 Draft Guide – Deep Cuts, Part 2

Charles Maniego takes us deep into the second round in his final piece ... guys who could get taken in the 50’s if the Nets decide to buy a pick or might not even get drafted ... and become candidates for summer league and training camp. So what are the chances the Nets buy a draft pick late in the second round? It’s a possibility. Even with two second round picks (for now), the Nets could potentially snag another, just to grab the rights of a player that could develop down the line. Here are the final 5 prospects I’ll be covering. While some mock drafts have these players going...

Brooklyn Nets 2018 Draft Guide – Deep Cuts, Part 1

Charles Maniego’s final pieces in his seven-part series on the Nets Draft takes a look at possible second rounders the Nets could take Thursday evening at Barclays Center when they have two picks in the 40’s. In the final section of prospect coverage, here’s a look at 10 second round prospects with intriguing upside – the deep cuts if you will. “Second Round Steals” is also a good term for this group, but that’s the name of a podcast I did back in 2015 that never got off the ground. (The podcast episodes are on YouTube if you want to hear me and a friend awkwardly fumble...

Nets Draft 2018: Draft Night Wonders and Blunders

It is what it is. Be a fan, read it all. Did someone say “surprise?” Take a look at 17 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 seemed to screw up until now! 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).

New name on Draft horizon?

New name on Draft horizon?

Keita Bates-Diop, the 6’8” defensive-minded Ohio State swingman, has become a new name in the mix for the Nets 29th pick ... if they keep it. In recent days, both ESPN and CBS Sports have suggested that KBD would be an ideal fit for Brooklyn. Moreover, he’s been endorsed by his former OSU teammate, D’Angelo Russell. On Monday, ESPN’s Mike Schmitz called Bates-Diop a “perfect pick” for the Nets, part of ESPN’s annual Grade A mock draft, one where their writers focus on which prospects teams pick. At close to 6-foot-9 with a near-7-4 wingspan and fluid athleticism,...

Timofey Mozgov doubles down on criticism of Kenny Atkinson

Timofey Mozgov doubles down on criticism of Kenny Atkinson

For the second time in the last 10 days, Timofey Mozgov has criticized his treatment by Kenny Atkinson. This time, the criticism was not in response to Russian reporters’ questions, but in his own words, posted on a new, Belarus-based sports blog. It was more pointed and less vague than the earlier critiques. Here’s what Mozgov volunteered about his time with the Nets on Scorum.com, four days ago... “I’m very dissatisfied with my NBA season. It was a hard one and really bad. The breaking point came quite unexpectedly. The coach just said: “This is the situation we have”. There...

How workouts help Nets in 2019, “third round” this year

How workouts help Nets in 2019, “third round” this year

In talking about how “smart teams” look a the Draft process, Adrian Wojnarowski and ESPN Draft Analyst Mike Schmitz spoke this week about the value of working out a lot of players, even those who were likely to drop out before the May 31 (college) and June 11 (international) deadlines. Both said they thought teams —like the Nets— who work out a lot of prospects a have a leg up on the next draft because they accumulate a great deal of data on those players who go back to school or their home countries. “If you’re a smart team, you bring in as many guys as you can,” said...

Brooklyn Nets 2018 Draft Guide – 3&D Candidates, Part 2

With rumors afoot, Sir Charles is pulling out all the stops, creating Draft Cards for all possibilities. We are working him hard. We’re almost there. The NBA Draft is creeping up on us, and seemingly, for Nets fans, the attention has shifted not from who the Nets will pick – but where they’ll pick. Will it be 4, 11, 14, or 29? Who knows. (I guess some people do, but the only source I have is the NetsDaily comments section.) Here are five more 3&D (or just “3” or “D” prospects) the Nets can take a look at. Some of these players will likely be available in the second round,...
