In Al Iannazzone’s draft report this morning, he references some members of the Nets’ front office who believe DeMarcus Cousins is a better pick at #3 than Derrick Favors. The problem? Would Cousins, more of a center than a power forward, be able to share the floor with Brook Lopez?
“That’s what we have to figure out,” Thorn said. “Can [Lopez and Cousins] play together? What kind of system would you use to have those guys play together? That’s what we’re hoping to figure out when we work them out.”
Cousins and Favors will face each other tomorrow in a pre-draft workout for the Nets.
