Erick Green to join Tim Hardaway Jr. in Monday workouts as Draft nears

Peter Casey-US PRESSWIRE

Erick Green, who used speed and shooting prowess to lead the NCAA in scoring last season, will join Tim Hardaway Jr. Monday at the PNY Center as the Nets workouts near an end. The Nets only other scheduled workout will come Wednesday when Gorgui Dieng, the Louisville center, will work out for the first time and Allen Crabbe will return for his second.

Billy King and chief scout Gregg Polinsky have said they want Jason Kidd to see several prospects they worked out before he was hired. The new schedule will give Kidd a chance to see Green, Hardaway, Dieng and Crabbe at the very least. In the past, the Nets have worked out players as late as the morning of the Draft so it's possible the Nets will bring in players on Thursday as well.

Green, a 6'3" combo guard, averaged 25.4 points a game for Virginia Tech. He is seen as a candidate for the end of the first round or the top of the second. In addition to Green and Hardaway, Marshall’s Dennis Tinnon; St. Bonaventure’s Demetrius Conger, a Brooklyn product; Southern Mississippi’s Dwayne Davis and Giovan Oniangue, a 6'6" Congolese prospect who plays for Paris-Levallois -- coming in Monday.

Draft Express wrote of Green earlier this year...

Standing 6'3 with a thin, wiry frame and near 6'7 wingspan, Green is a natural scorer who can put points on the board in bunches with his pull-up jump shot and ability to get to the free throw line, but has also shown improvement as a distributor this season, particularly in the pick and roll. Fitting the mold of a modern, up-tempo, scoring point guard, the senior's skills have been tested on a nightly basis this season as his team's first option, primary ball-handler, and end-all, be-all solution on the offensive end.

Meanwhile, Josh Newman of SNY Nets reports that Dieng, the 6'11" Louisville product, has told reporters he will work out for the Nets. Dieng has been dropping in many mock drafts.

At the same time, NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper, who is based in northern California, tweets the Nets will take a second look at Crabbe.
