It's still likely, at a time of uncertainty, is that the Nets will hang on to the 57th pick, obtained in an odd transaction that brought Chris Quinn to the Nets and sent Rafer Alston to the Heat. It's just not that valuable a commodity.
With all the discussion of Draft Day trades and moving up, Tim Bontemps takes a look at who might be available for the Nets low in the draft. In 1999, it produced a future Hall of Famer, Argentina's Manu Ginobili, and in 2005, a solid big man in Poland's Marcin Gortat. With that in mind, Bontemps suggests the Nets go Euro-Stash.
There is one college player the Nets like. He's not on any of the mock drafts, Tony Mitchell, the 6'7" swingman from Alabama, "the athletic specimen who impressed at the Nets Combine."
