If Nets Get #2, Turner Likely Pick

Quoting "several people who have been told of [Rod] Thorn’s plans", Dave D'Alessandro reports that if the Nets wind up with the second pick in the draft, "they are all but certain they will settle for Evan Turner of Ohio State."  After that, the picture gets cloudy, but don't dismiss Derrick Favors of Georgia Tech.

The Nets can pick no lower than #4, and if that happens, don't expect to see Thorn sobbing.  "Hopefully, you get lucky and gain control," he told D'Alessandro. "But the odds are that it is foolish to say, ‘If we don’t get this or that, we’re in trouble.’ You can’t go all woe-is-me. Wherever you are, you just make the best choice you can. And we feel if we’re placed in that position we’ll get the best player available."

Thorn and his staff went over "every scenario, every debate, every background check, covering 50 potential draftees" on Friday.  And while Mikhail Prokhorov is holding his initial press conference Wednesday, Thorn and crew will be at the Pre-Draft Combine in Chicago.
