It's a busy time for Avery Johnson. He's been watching draft prospects work out, studying film of others late into the night and talking to potential assistant coaches.
Friday, there was a bit of a break, as he and his wife, Cassandra, looked at a condo...but before he did, he looked at a prospect well beyond draft age. Qyntel Woods, the 6'9" swingman who played for the Blazers, Heat and Knicks before heading to Europe, was in for a workout. Johnson says he liked what he saw, but wouldn't say if Woods will be joining the Nets. Woods was charged in a bar fight two weeks ago in Poland.
Johnson has some roster spots to fill. Only five players have unencumbered contracts next season: Devin Harris, Yi Jianlian, Brook Lopez, Courtney Lee and Terrence Williams. Keyon Dooling is likely gone and there's no word yet on whether options on Kris Humphries (player) and Chris Douglas-Roberts (team) will be picked up.
Al Iannazzone reports that in addition to the Nets' three picks at #3, #27 and #31, two sources are telling him the Nets could buy an additional second rounder. A number of teams have multiple second round picks.
