The NBA Draft is lower than a month away, which suggests mock season is formally in full swing. This is what the consultants suppose the Nets may do with the No. 19 decide.
C Aleksej Pokuševski (Serbia)
Brooklyn’s able the place it must win now with Ok.D. and Kyrie, thus making this decide a long-view funding. Pokusevski is ultra-skilled with nice positional dimension and uncommon passing, dribbling and scoring abilities, however he is skinny, uncooked and unfinished. “Probably important contributor down the street,” is how one scout described him to me. “However he isn’t prepared.”
G/F Desmond Bane (TCU)
Bane may contribute straight away to Brooklyn’s championship hopes as a shooter, complementary playmaker, and hard-nosed defender.
G R.J. Hampton (USA)
It makes a lot sense — the Nets want a younger expertise off the bench behind Caris LeVert, and Hampton has the potential to be an energizing sub with the best way he drives to the ring.
G Leandro Bolmaro (Spain)
Bolmaro is a artistic playmaker with good courtroom imaginative and prescient and loads of vary on his jumper. Whereas he isn’t an elite athlete, he’s artful and performs laborious. Brooklyn must fill their roster with help items round their stars. They’ll even have a bunch of veteran free brokers seeking to chase a hoop. Which means roster spots will probably be at a premium and a draft and stash prospect like Bolmaro is perhaps in play.
