Cousins vs. Favors - June 21 in NJ; Winner Take All?

DeMarcus Cousins, whose stock is falling, and Derrick Favors, whose is going in the opposite direction, will face off in New Jersey June 21, three days before the Draft.  Adrian Wojnarowski says Rod Thorn is leaning toward drafting Favors, but wants to see him against an advanced player, like Cousins.

The two worked out separately in Sacramento and Woj says Cousins came across as the more NBA ready...hitting 78% of his outside shots in the workout.

Earlier, Draft Express updated its mock draft for the first time in 10 days and it showed Cousins dropping, as low at #7.   DX's Jonathan Givony reported via Twitter that "Its Favors or Wes Johnson" in New Jersey, adding he's "not sure" Cousins "is even in the mix for NJ".

As for the Nets two other picks, DX projects South Florida's 6'4" SG Dominque Jones at #27 and West Virginia's 6'7" SF Devin Ebanks at #31. Dave D'Alessandro has reported the Nets are not interested in Ebanks.  Yet no player is projected more for those lower picks than Ebanks.
