Possible 2nd Round Draft Sleeper for Nets


Check out Chad Ford's latest Draft Stock piece on ESPN Insider.  He mentions a St. John's recruit for next year (plays in community college now) named Nurideen Lindsey.  Apparently he has had a checkered past; having dropped out of HS following his junior season and then not playing hoops for 3 years and is already 20 years old.  But the upside is this...."Lindsey is a super athletic, lightning-quick guard who draws comparisons by some scouts to a poor man's Iverson and Monta Ellis."  In his first game in Community College he dropped 48 points and averaged 38 ppg his final year of HS (junior year). 

Apparently he does not have a great jump shot and is undersized (6'2'' 170) but this quote alone makes me want to see him as a Net...an NBA scout said "I haven't seen a kid with his quickness and scoring ability in a while. It's not easy to gauge given the competition, but I know fast, and he's fast.  And I know scorers, and he can score in any league."  With the success of ultra fast scorers in the NBA (AI, Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, etc) landing a kid like this to provide instant offense off the bench in the early second round (non-guaranteed contract) would be a nice coup for the Nets.


The workout video I saw of him on YouTube is pretty impressive...and he has great form on his jumper with a nice release point and can clearly catch and shoot.
