It's official. The Nets will have the 22nd, 27th, and 57th pick in the draft, which will take place on June 22.
1. Indiana, Miami and Chicago all won their games. That means Indiana makes the playoffs. The Indiana pick is still protected from 45-60 slots until 2022 and unprotected after 2023.
2. Boston win guarantees that the Nets will pick 27th and 57th, their bounty for swapping first round picks.
3. Washington's defeat guarantees that the Nets will pick 22nd.
In Draft Express latest mock, those picks would net Rodions Kurucs, the 6’9” small forward from Latvia; Jawun Evans, the 6’1” point guard out of Oklahoma State; and V.J. Beacham, the 6’8” small forward out of Notre Dame.
The Nets also have $3.425 million in cash considerations to purchase a pick ... or move up, if they choose.
The last time the Nets picked at No. 22, they took Mason Plumlee in 2013. The last time they picked at No. 27, they traded it and a second rounder for Damian James in 2010. The Nets have never picked at No. 57.
