Adam Morrison, Al Thornton and Julian Wright will get a chance to renew their NBA careers in two weeks when the Nets entry plays in the Orlando Summer League. The three former lottery picks along with Marshon Brooks, Jordan Williams and draft pick Tyshawn Taylor are the big names on the roster, which is not yet complete.

In additon to Morrison, Thornton and Wright, all lottery picks, the Nets have recruited Jeff Foote who played for the Armor, Edwin Ubiles, who was D-League rookie of the year, and Taurean Green, a combo guard who played on Florida's national championship team and now plays in Turkey. The Nets two European picks in Thursday's draft will not play in Orlando, which runs from July 9 to 13.

Morrison, Thornton, Wright and Ubiles all participated in the Nets free agent mini-camp in May.
