With the pick acquired in the Jason Kidd trade, the Nets selected Cal small forward Ryan Anderson. The Nets travelled to Philadelphia last week to take a look at the 6'-10" 20-year-old. He averaged 21 and 12 in the PAC-10, shooting better than 41% beyond the arc. With Lopez and Anderson, the Nets took two big men who combined for 40 and 20 last season. They're the youngest Nets in 25 years.
