Not to be underestimated would be Avery's impact on the team. Both collectively and individually. Most folks are of the opinion that Avery would put the "D" back in evin Harris. I like the fact that he's a no-nonsense, intense, work-aholic. The team was seriously lacking direction last year with Kiki. That would end with Avery running the ship.
Is there a concern though that Avery's style of management might not work for everyone? Point in case. I don't see Avery taking any lip from anyone or allowing guys to get off message (i.e. TWill and CDR). I could easily see Avery having a very large "dog house" for players who step out of line. This can be both good and bad. Good in the sense that the players will be held accountable, which I don't think there was enough of last season. Bad in the sense that once you're buried, it may take some time to earn Avery's confidence back. Good example was Byron Scott. He liked to stick with his "foxhole guys" even to the detriment of the team. Eventually Byron's "foxhole" guys turned on him.
Say Cousins is the Nets pick. If Cousins pulled any of the stunts that he did at Kentucky (i.e. - refusing to participate in some conditioning program) with Avery, he'll probably be lacing up in the D-League for awhile.
I'm just hoping that if Avery is the coaching pick, that he's able to modify his intense style to get the most out of the team.
