After Thursday's workouts, the Nets will have worked out 30 players --18 last week, 12 this week. The Nets are still working on scheduling for the last workout dates. A review of media reports and tweets reveals another nine players have already committed to coming in, at least two of them projected as first rounders.
Sir'Dominic Pointer, the St. John's shooting guard, will be in on Monday. Here are the others...
Rashad Vaughn of UNLV; Dez Wells of Maryland; Joseph Young of Oregon; T.J. McConnell of Arizona; Will Cummings of Temple, Jherrod Stiggers of Houston, Tyler Haws of BYU and Larry Nance Jr of Wyoming. All but Nance, a power forward, are guards. Vaughn is projected late first round, perhaps as high as No. 21. Opinion is divided on Young, as it is on a lot of players after 25. Chad Ford has him at No. 27, DX at No. 54. McConnell could go late in the second. The rest are likely to go undrafted.
Nets insiders said the team expected to work out between 50 and 60 prospects. Because the Draft will be held at Barclays Center, the Nets will be able to work out players as late as Draft Day, June 25.
Meanwhile, Draft Express reports that Timothe Luwavu, the French swingman linked to the Nets, will be dropping out of the draft. Reports indicated that Luwawu, who's 6'7", would drop out if he didn't get a first round guarantee. He is now automatically eligible for the 2016 Draft which as this point is deemed a weaker draft.
