The Nets announced their roster for the AirTran Airways Pro Summer League on Monday. The roster includes draft picks Derrick Favors and Damion James, as well as Terrence Williams. Undrafted rookies include Tulsa's Ben Uzoh, Baylor's Tweety Carter, Tennessee's Wayne Chism and Duke big men Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek, both Jersey guys. In addition to Williams, two players on the roster have NBA experience: Cezary Trybanski and Gabe Pruitt. The team also features three seven-footers.
The coaches listed on the roster may be just as interesting as the players. They are Popeye Jones, John Loyer, Doug Overton and former University of Georgia head coach, Dennis Felton. Dave D'Alessandro notes that they all "won’t necessarily be full-time staffers going forward."
The Nets will hold a four-day training camp in East Rutherford before traveling to Orlando for five days of games, which start next Monday. Full roster after the jump...
