Barring a trade--and Fred Kerber hinted again that the Nets "might trade back a few spots"--the Nets expect to take the best player available at both #10 and #21, and if that means two bigs or two shooters, so be it. But the team does like a few players: Danilo Gallinari and the Lopez twins up top and NC State's J.J. Hickson at #21. "We like him," Rod Thorn said of the 6'-9" power forward. "He has got potential."
