Chad Ford, who has a pretty good track record in scouting out the Nets Draft Day intentions, writes that if the Nets do keep their top three pick, their draft board reads: Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, both of Kentucky, and in a bit of a surprise, Bradley Beal, Florida's 6'5" shooting guard. Here's what he wrote for ESPN Insider:
The Nets are praying that they convert that 7.5 percent chance into some luck on lottery night. If they don't get one of the top three picks, they have to ship their pick over to the Blazers as part of the Gerald Wallace trade. If the Nets have the pick, they'd obviously take Davis at No. 1. Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal round out the top three for them.
