The Draft Lottery is over and all the positions are set. Early entrants have made their decisions and the Nets have worked out 50+ prospects at the HSS Training Center. Everything is in place for serious speculation.

The Nets official site on Friday did a survey to see which player has been linked to the Nets in mock drafts and came up with Jerome Robinson (we would have thought Moe Wagner), saying “this 6-6 guard has been pegged for Brooklyn in at least a half-dozen mock drafts ... and in all three of Brooklyn’s drafting positions.” That would (currently) be Nos. 29, 40 and 45. Brooklynnets.com also noted that three other swingmen — Donte DiVincenzo, Hamidou Diallo and Grayson Allen — have been linked to the Nets as well.

Robinson was the ACC’s leading scorer at Boston College last season, averaging a healthy 20.7 points and shooting 40.7 percent from deep. He can play the point as well as the 2. Here’s a highlight package...

And here’s the latest from each of the major mocks. It includes Woj’s pick, which is different from the ESPN board. If a mock includes an early entrant that’s returned to school, we’ve gone to the next player in the mock. We’ve marked those with an asterisk.
