In an interview with his hometown newspaper, Rod Thorn reiterated what his GM has been saying, and what Dave D'Alessandro is reporting: the Nets plan on keeping their picks. Player development is the team's new mantra. In discussing two West Virginians in the draft, Thorn said "we've got to consider" Joe Alexander at #10, and if O.J. Mayo gets to #10, "he won't get to #11.''
