ESPN's ranking of 500 NBA players is half done and only five Nets from last year's roster are ranked in top 250 players. They are Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Anthony Morrow, Kris Humphries and Sasha Vujacic, not necessarily in that order. At the other end, 10 Nets rank in the bottom 150 and five in the bottom 100.
Just missing the cut was Jordan Farmar at 251. The others, as ranked by ESPN's 91 "experts" were: Travis Outlaw (271), Brandan Wright (305), Marshon Brooks (347), Damion James (352), Dan Gadzuric (356), Mario West (358), Quinton Ross (372), Johan Petro (373), Sundiata Gaines (402), Ben Uzoh (412), Stephen Graham (443), Jordan Williams (475) and Orien Greene (484).
Eight players taken before Brooks (347) in the draft --including two lottery picks-- were ranked below him by ESPN's experts: Klay Thompson and Markieff Morris (tied for 349), Nikola Vucevic (391), Chris Singleton (360), Donatas Motiejunas (386), Nolan Smith (394), Reggie Jackson (422) and the Knicks' pick, Iman Shumpert (440). No one picked after him ranked higher.
