Normally, training camp invites go to a variety of players, a couple from the summer league roster, a player who the Nets liked but went undrafted, a good D-League player. But with the shortened camp, and the Nets having their own D-League team, inviting three Armor players was a no-brainer.
Ben Couch looks at Dennis Horner, Jerry Smith and JamesOn Curry and how their time in camp is a positive for the Nets' development strategy. The Nets got three players familiar with their playbook, game sets, jargon and the Armor got added confidence for their three best players. Horner, of course, is still around. He's played well, and on Friday, the Nets told him he had made the club.
