2016 NBA Draft
Sean Powell has written the NBA.com assessment of the Nets off-season. It's not good. Unlike pundits like Chad Ford, he's not assigning a letter grade or forecasting a won-loss record. He just thinks the Nets have the worst roster in the NBA
There have been a lot of off-season and free agency grades. David Aldridge thinks the Nets had the worst off-season and most of those who ranked them noted two things: they missed on Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe, but didn't make any dumb moves.
We don't know the specifics of Caris LeVert's rehab. At last week's press conference, he said he had just started running on the treadmill and both he and the Nets staff expect and hope he'll be ready for the start of training camp in two months.
On Wednesday, in between the press conference and Open House, Jeremy Lin talked by phone with J.J. Redick, who in addition to playing shooting guard for the Clippers is an interviewer (and quite the good one) at Adrian Wojnarowski's "The Vertical."
In an interview with MLive.com, the Michigan news site, Caris LeVert spoke of how he expected to drafted high, but that he doesn't want to put a "firm date" on what he'll be back on court, other than "the next couple months."
How can you not root for a Florida native who goes by the name of Beau Beech? That's the name of the Nets latest summer league signing, a 6'9" swingman from North Florida who didn't get drafted Thursday, then signed for summer league with the Nets.
There was little appreciation last night for what very well could be the biggest news of the day: After the Thaddeus Young trade, and with some moves here and there, the Nets could be top three in cap space when free agency opens in a week.
