Andy Katz of ESPN wonders if the Nets--or the Knicks--have promised to draft Connecticut big man Josh Boone in the first round. Katz speculates that Boone and Duke forward Sheldon Williams have stopped working out because they received a guarantee that they're satisfied with. Boone worked out with the Knicks, who have the 20th and 29th picks, on May 30 and the Nets the next day, then said he had been injured. It's not uncommon for a prospect to stop workouts once he has a promise.
