Twice during Sunday's Nets Combine, Tony Mitchell took a pass in the open court and flushed it with a reverse dunk. The 6'6" Alabama swingman with a 39" vertical was probably the most talented player at the two-day combine and one the Nets have their eye on, but may wind up in the second round because problems dealing with his coach at 'Bama.

The 22-year-old had been projected as a mid-first round pick after his sophomore year, when he averaged 15 and 7, but after being suspended following an altercation with his coach in mid-season,he dropped off some mock drafts. Still, the Nets are interested. Fred Kerber writes Monday that he has intrigued a number of teams after the combine.
