Rod Thorn recalled his good luck a year ago when teams at #3, #4 and #9 all seriously considered then passed on Brook Lopez, leaving him sitting at #10 for the Nets. Thorn says he feels lucky again. Without naming names, he told writers Wednesday, "There is a player people are talking about going in the top three or four. If he doesn't go in the top three or four, he can go straight down the board, too."
