Buried in Fred Kerber's article on the Nets draft prospects is word from Rod Thorn that the team expects to exercise its option on Jarvis Hayes. The Nets must exercise the option by June 30. Hayes, signed with the lower level exception last August, would make $2.06 million this season. He's one of two Nets with an option this summer. Trenton Hassell has a $4.35 million player option that he's almost certain to exercise.
