GM Billy King and the Nets will hold workouts starting on Monday, June 2nd for 32 free agents, the team announced today. The workouts will last until June 4th and will be held at the team’s training facility in New Jersey. The 32 free agents will be divided into two groups; a morning session and an afternoon session.
There will be ten players who have previously played in the NBA with the most notable being Donte Greene, Kim English, Ivan Johnson, Malcom Lee, DeAndre Liggins, Scott Machado, and Lance Thomas. Two years ago, the Nets tried to sign Greene to a contract before he injured his ankle in a workout. They also inquired about Johnson earlier this year.
It’s likely that the Nets will invite a number of these free agents to their summer league in Orlando starting in early July. Currently, it appears as though there are just three players who will be on the summer league roster: Mason Plumlee, Marquis Teague and Jorge Gutierrez.
