One reason the Nets may be contemplating trading down is that two players they really like--Jordan Hill and Jonny Flynn--are unlikely to make it to #11 and two others they like a lot--UNC's Ty Lawson and Tyler Hansbrough--could be grabbed later. The Nets like their toughness and leadership skills. One thing isn't likely to change: Rod Thorn and Kiki Vandeweghe continue to say it's "best player available".
