Ryan Jones at SB Nation claims that Billy King and the Nets will target the best players available with the 27th and 35th picks in the upcoming draft.
The Nets are hoping to draft instant impact players but the reality is that this season’s draft is just not too great. Unfortunately, the instability of the labor negotiations prevents King from wheeling and dealing the picks in trades. However, drafting smartly can cause a team to stumble upon an All-Star late in the first round. Let’s hope that this draft is not as weak as the pundits are claiming.
