Evan Fournier, a 6'7" combo guard from Poitiers, France, is the top prospect scheduled for the Nets' mass workout this weekend at PNY Center. Fournier, who the Nets have scouted on several occasions, is one of 44 prospects, mostly second rounders, who will work out in front of 30 NBA teams Saturday and Sunday.

In addition to Fournier, who's projected mid to late first round, other notables include Iona PG Scott Machado, the NCAA leader in assists; two Big East SF's, Kris Joseph, out of Syracuse, and Jae Crowder, Marquette's conference player of the year. Kyle O'Quinn, a 6'10" C/PF who played well both in the NCAA Tournament for Norfolk State and at the Portsmouth Invitational, and Ivy League player of the year PG Zach Rosen, will also be on hand.

Players will be measured and skill tested as well as participate in five-on-five competition. Nets coaches and front office personnel will run the drills and manage the mass workout, which is one of two before the June 28 draft.

Meanwhile, Tom Ziller of SB Nation believes the basketball gods want the Nets to win the Draft Lottery. It's all about a weird psychic combination of Jay-Z, Mikhail Prokhorov and Bruce Ratner.
