The Draft is a week from Thursday and normally by this point, there is some consensus about which players are going where.  Not this year and at the bottom of the first/top of the second, where the Nets pick there is even less clarity...at least among the draftniks. Who knows what the Killer B's think?

In the most widely read mocks --Draft Express, ESPN, NBADraft.net, Sports Illustrated and SB Nation-- no player gets more than one vote, although there is some agreement on one player: Draft Express has the Nets taking Jeremy Tyler at #36 and Chad Ford notes that Tyler is one of five players the Nets may be considering at #27, along with BC's Reggie Jackson; Richmond's Justin Harper, UCLA's Tyler Honeycutt and Purdue's JaJuan Johnson.

In the first round, Draft Express thinks it could be Hofstra's Charles Jenkins; NBADraft.net is going with USC's 7-footer, Nikola Vucevic (who one of mocks puts at #15); while SBNation thinks it's Georgia Tech's Iman Shumpert. Typical of the uncertainty, SI's Sam Amick likes Duke's Nolan Smith as a Deron Williams back-up but if Josh Selby's still around, "I do wonder whether Selby enters the picture here."

As for trades, Billy King said he expects those calls to start the weekend.
