"Second Draft" Will Still Go On

Once the draft is over and the names of the 60 players chosen are known, GM's, their assistants and scouts will turn their attention to that small group of players who might have NBA futures but for whatever reason, didn't make the final cut.

The Nets were among the most active in this "second draft" last June, giving Brian Zoubek a partial guarantee of $50,000 and Ben Uzoh one of $35,000. The Nets cut Zoubek at the end of training camp but extended Uzoh a full season's deal in January. In past, some deals have gotten into low six figures.

And in spite of the impending lockout, the Nets will still make calls to agents of the undrafted, offering either non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed deals.  Of course, they won't be able to sign any player until July 1 or whenever the lockout ends. With the hybrid affiliation with the Armor, the Nets are likely to be as aggressive as last season...and more attractive.
