The Athletes Join Nets Workouts; Singler, Brooks, Selby in This Week

The Nets held their third individual workout Tuesday, but this was the first where there was a prospect, aka an "athlete" who the team could take at #27. Iman Shumpert, Georgia Tech's 6'5" combo guard, was the star of the show.  Now projected at #22 by Draft Express, Shumpert's athleticism got Billy King's attention.

"Iman he has great athleticism," King said. "He’s very strong and defensively he’s got some upside. He’s got a lot of tools you like". The other athlete, DeAndre Liggins, a 6'6" defensive oriented swingman, could also be in the mix if the Nets buy a pick late in the second, where's projected. "He’s somebody who can really defend," said the Nets GM. "He can play a lot of positions. He played the point. He played Kemba [Walker], so that’s the versatility of him defensively."

The Nets also announced that some of the more high profile prospects will be visiting PNY Center. On Wednesday, Darius Morris of Michigan, Kyle Singler of Duke, E’Twaun Moore of Purdue, Cleveland State’s Norris Cole, Marquette’s Jimmy Butler and Chandler Parsons of Florida will be in. Then Thursday, the Nets will work out Kansas guard Josh Selby, Duke combo guard Nolan Smith, Providence scoring guard Marshon Brooks, Butler guard Shelvin Mack and big men Justin Harper of Richmond and Nikola Vucevic of USC.
