As Rod Thorn watched the first day of the Orlando PreDraft camp Tuesday, he told local reporters that players with "shaky" character will have a hard time getting drafted by the Nets, saying "we just can't take that chance." The Nets did take a chance last June when character concerns led to Marcus Williams dropping all the way to #22 and the Nets. Although the Nets have no second rounder in this year's draft, they will work out prospects, among them Wright State PG DeShaun Wood.
