The Nets will have 12 players in for workouts on Monday and Tuesday but none are among the big names among the 2011 Draft. Only one of the 12 is listed in the first round of Draft Express' latest mock draft, 6'5" Georgia Tech combo guard Iman Shumpert, at #22. Two others, small forwards Travis Leslie of Georgia and Jereme Richmond of Illinois, are listed in top half of the second round.
Here's the breakdown: On Monday, the Nets will look at Leslie; Richmond; Chaisson Allen, 6'4" shooting guard from Northeastern, LaceDarius Dunn, 6'4" shooting guard from Baylor; Lavoy Allen, 6'9" power forward from Temple and Jamel McLean, 6'8" power forward from Xavier of Ohio.
On Tuesday, it will be Shumpert, who's fast moving up many draft boards; Xavier Silas, 6'5" point guard from Northern Illinois; DeAndre Liggins, 6'6" defense-minded shooting guard from Kentucky; Corey Fisher and Antonio Pena, a 6'4" shooting guard and a 6'8" power forward from Villanova; and Alex Tyus, a 6'8" power forward from Florida.
