Deadlines and Committments - LXXVIII


What's next? A lot. The NBA Draft will be held at Barclays Center for the first time and with at least a first round pick, the Nets will be sorting and analyzing scouting reports. There are also contract decisions a few days after the draft and then Summer League and the FIBA Tournaments.

Here's the details

May 15-19 - Chicago Pre-Draft Camp. Four days of measurements, drills and interviews.

May 21 - 2013 NBA Draft Lottery. Nets aren't in it but outcome could affect decisions by a number of teams.

May 22 - Conference Finals begin. Nets aren't in them. DAMN!

May TBA - Brooklyn Nets Group Workout

May TBA - Minnesota Group Workout

June 6 - Finals begin

June 8-10 - Adidas EuroCamp, Treviso, Italy. The leading pre-draft combine for overseas players. Nets liked what they saw from Toko Shengelia here last year.

June 27 -- NBA Draft at Barclays Center. Nets have their own first round pick, at #22, but no second round pick. Last year, the Nets used $2.75 million of their $3 million cash limit to buy second round picks used to acquire Tyshawn Taylor and Shengelia. With this year's draft so poor, they may be able to buy a high second rounder or low first rounder. If they don't use the $3 million on Draft Night, they lose it three days later.

June 30 -- Presumably, C.J. Watson will have decided on his player option for 2013-14 by this date. If he opts in, he will be paid $1.1 million. Contracts for P.J. Carlesimo and coaching staff all expire.

July 1 -- Andray Blatche, Jerry Stackhouse and Keith Bogans become unrestricted free agents.

July 7-13 - Orlando Summer League

August 30 - FIBA Tournament of the Americas opens in Venezuela. Will Kris Joseph play for Canada? He's on the roster.

September 4 - FIBA Europe Tournament opens in Slovenia. Mirza Teletovic will play for Bosnia; Toko Shengelia will play for Georgia; Bojan Bogdanovic will play for Croatia; Ilkan Karaman will play for Turkey and Mike Fratello will coach Ukraine. Don't be surprised if the Nets pick a second rounder from overseas. So the number could grow.
