Nets have worked out 60 prospects with two weeks to go

As the NBA Draft looms, we’ll keep updating this list of college and international prospects who’ve worked out for Brooklyn.


The Nets apparently will exceed last year’s Draft workout number. Based on our informal survey, Brooklyn has looked at around 60 prospects. That’s about the same as last year ... with two weeks to go before the Draft. And we don’t have the full list. In almost all cases, we only have a partial list of who’s showed up for the day-long look-see.

Our names aren’t official, either. The Nets do not release names or much else about the workouts. On Friday, they posted two short videos of a workout, but were careful not to show any of the prospects’ faces!

For those wondering about the four Nets executives shown in the first video, they are, left to right, Dan Meehan, director of sports science; Sean Marks, GM; Andrew Baker, director of strategic planning, and Gregg Polinsky, director of player personnel aka chief scout.

So how did we come up with the names? By scouring social media, our draft maven, @GNYR, developed the list, which we update as soon as we see a tweet or Instagram post.

The order below is in the order of when workouts came to our attention. The number in parentheses is their rank on ESPN’s Big Board around the time when they worked out. Players with asterisks next to their names worked out, then dropped out of the Draft, re-classifying for the 2019 Draft.

Bosnian small forward, 19-year-old Dzanan Musa, is in New York as of Friday, but he’s said he has only one workout scheduled, with the Spurs. He told ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla earlier in the week that he hopes to get other scheduled soon. In the meantime, he’s working out on his own.

Why so many workouts? The Nets, as noted, have three picks, at 29, 40 and 45. They also have two two-way contracts, summer league and training camp rosters to fill ... and there’s the G-League Draft in early November. What the Nets learn about players now can be helpful when they pick for the Long Island Nets in November.
