Avery Johnson made light (we think) of his point guard's suggestion that he can be a "bit of a dictator" if things don't go well. Sticking around New Jersey for draft workouts, Johnson responded to Devin Harris' comment.
"More than anything Devin is a better point guard so I won’t have to dictate as much," Johnson said.
"It’s a luxury when you can sit down a lot of the game and allow the point guard to play because he knows the system, he knows how to handle pressure situations. A lot of games I was sweating."
Johnson also reiterated that Harris needs some re-education. "He was doing a lot of what Rondo is doing now - Quick hands, quick feet, charges. We have to get him back to that."
Ironically, the first workout on Johnson's first full day as coach featured two point guards, named Johnson -- Armon and Anthony. Armon Johnson is indeed in the "discussion" for the picks at #27 and #31, Tom Barrise noted. Epke Udoh and Greg Monroe, two lottery bound PF's. were also...in case the Nets trade down. The Nets like both, but Udoh apparently more.
