Brooklyn Nets to work out Syracuse's C.J. Fair day before NBA Draft

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Zagoria of SNY New York tweets Thursday morning that the Nets will work out 6'8" Syracuse forward C.J. Fair on June 25, the day before the NBA Draft.

The Nets have yet to work out any draft prospects, at least publicly. Since Fair is unlikely to work out alone, the Nets are likely going to bring in other prospects next week as well.

Of course, they had no picks, at present, in either first or second round although Billy King has said the Nets can get a pick in the draft, not specifying which round and both Chris Mannix and Stefan Bondy reported on Wednesday that the Nets are interested in acquiring a late first rounder.

Fair will not be picked in the first round and according to some draftniks might not be picked at all. Draft Express doesn't list him at all, while NBADraft.net has him going at No. 47 to Philadelphia.  Chad Ford projects him go late in the second round or be undrafted. He is ranked 54th on Ford’s top-100 list of prospects, stating, "other than some elite hops, much of his game doesn't really translate to the next level." If Fair is not picked, he could get an invitation to the Nets summer league team.

Ohm Youngmisuk on Wednesday called the 6'8" Fair "a project who could give the Nets some depth at both forward positions -- though more likely small forward in the NBA given his 'tweener' height and slender frame."
