Could it be that part of the Nets' planning was to find reclamation projects at May's free agent mini-camp knowing that there'd be a need to fill out the roster with young veterans being paid minimum money? Starting to look that way. Summer league rosters are not normally dotted with former lottery picks aged 25, 26 and 28 who are looking for a second chance.

Adam Morrison says he chose the Nets for his comeback try because of their reputation. "My agent [Mark Bartelstein] said this would be a good spot," Morrison said. "They give guys chances and that’s all I’m looking for." Besides Morrison, there's Julian Wright, who missed the first two days of practice with a sore leg, and Al Thornton, who's reportedly slimmed down and playing well.
