Brooklyn Nets to bring back Draft prospects so Jason Kidd can get a look

Mike Stobe

As Billy King hinted at the Barclay Center partnership summit Tuesday, the Nets will bring back some top prospects between now and the Draft so Jason Kidd can get a look at them. Kidd didn't suit up in sweats until this week and he told NetsDaily that no one he's seen has impressed him. Kidd has seen Tony Mitchell of North Texas State.

"Obviously we embrace it and welcome it, because of the type of player that he was, and his eye for the players and how they might fit and work for what he wants to do," Polinsky told Tim Bontemps after the team held its latest workout at its practice facility Wednesday.

"It’s invaluable. It’s important. For him to have a feel about the guy and meet him, not just as much seeing him out here in this workout, because we have a ton of video he can watch, his staff, to get a feel of what they think. It doesn’t disrupt the flow of what we’re doing at all. I just think it adds another dimension that is very important for us to making a final decision."

Among the prospects who worked out last week were shooting guards Reggie Bullock of North Carolina, Allen Crabbe of California, and Tony Snell of New Mexio, combo guard Archie Goodwin of Kentucky and center Jeff Withey of Kansas. The Nets have not said who of the group will return of their second workout. Under NBA rules, teams can only workout a draft prospect twice.

Meanwhile, the star of Thursday's workout, Murray State point guard Isaiah Canaan injured his right ankle on Tuesday while working out for the Hawks and so was unavailable.

The Nets will hold workouts on Monday and Wednesday. The only confirmed prospect is Dennis Tinnon, the 6'9" Marshall PF. In past, the Nets have worked out players in East Rutherford on the morning of the Draft. So, it's possible, Kidd and other Nets brass could be watching both the workout and the clock next Thursday.
