The Armor will have six returning players from last year's team and have seven picks in the D-League Draft Thursday night, starting with #17 overall. Their other picks are numbers 46, 47, 78, 79, 100 and 101.
Armor Coach Bob MacKinnon, assistant coach Chris Carrawell, Milton Lee and Nets scouts spent the last week going over the nearly 500 players in the draft pool, of which 127 will be selected by the league’s 16 teams over eight rounds.
Among the top players in the draft pool, which is 277 strong, are Michigan State guard Durrell Summers, Mustapha Farrakhan of the Virginia Cavaliers and Cory Higgins, a former standout at Colorado and the son of Charlotte Bobcats' president of basketball operations Rod Higgins.
