Maceo Baston, an all-Euroleague power forward from Maccabi Tel Aviv, quietly worked out for the Nets two weeks before the draft, according to a blog written by a minor league player who worked out with him. Baston, an athletic 6'-9", played 16 games for the Raptors in 2003 before heading to Israel. He won three Euroleague championships there. He recently said he had an offer from an unnamed NBA team. The offer, for the vets' minimum, would provide him less money than he made in Israel, however.
