The Nets didn't work players out individually last season. They had no first round pick and until they bought the 41st and 54th picks, they had only the 57th pick to worry about. This year, they have the 22nd pick in the first round and $3 million to buy picks in the second, if they so choose.
With that in mind, they have begun scheduling individual workouts for first round prospects. Although the list is thus far close-hold, Jamaal Franklin, a 6'5" shooting guard with a near seven-foot wingspan, has told draftniks he has agreed to work out for the Nets.

Franklin is expected to show his wares to Nets brass in June after his ankle heals. He has been seen as a mid-to-late first round pick. His calling cards are good defense and high motor, along with an ability to play both guard spots. He is not a good deep shooter.
The Nets will host a group workout at PNY Center next Thursday and Friday and then begin individual workouts in anticipation of the June 27 Draft at Barclays Center.
