Moving on...

The Nets have two picks in the first round — and Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday that the Nets are willing to take on a salary dump to add another (or “a good young player”). The Nets have one pick in the second round — and are always looking to buy additional picks.

So, June 22 is likely to be big — and unpredictable. Still, there are mock drafts and while there isn’t a consensus yet on who the Nets will take, the same names keep popping up: Isaiah Hartenstein, the German-American big man; Ivan Rabb, the Cal power forward; Hamidou Diallo, the phenom from Queens and Harry Giles, the freshman who was higher ranked that Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz before his latest knee injury.

Here’s the numbers (not that they mean much). Of the 15 mocks we surveyed, Giles was on five, Hartenstein on four, Rabb on three and a number of others, including Diallo, on two.

Here’s our latest survey.

NOTES: Almost all the mocks were updated overnight. Where the mock draft included summaries of the players, we linked to the summary. Otherwise, we linked to Draft Express.

Interesting point on Giles: He’s had three knee surgeries and is aware of Nets medical director, Dr. Riley J. Williams, who’s pioneered a number of knee procedures. It will be Williams who reviews Giles medical records. But Chad Ford reports that it’s unlikely he will make it out of the lottery unless his medical report is problematic.

Interesting point on Hartenstein: He’s listed as an international because he plays overseas and lives in Germany. But he was born in the U.S. His mother is American, and his father, Florian Hartenstein, played collegiate ball at Oregon.
