While the coaching search grabs the headlines, the Brooklyn Nets host their second group NBA Draft prospect workout in as many days.
Working out for the Nets today: Chris Flores (PG, NJIT), Tyler Brown (SG, Illinois St.), Archie Goodwin (SG, Kentucky), A.J. Davis (SF, James Madison), Tony Snell (SF, New Mexico), and Reggie Bullock (SF, UNC). These workouts are always subject to change, due to pressure from agents and scheduling. Nets director of player personnel Gregg Polinsky noted that Jamaal Franklin, who was not supposed to be at yesterday’s workout, was in fact there with the team. Franklin did not work out due to injury.
The Nets currently hold the 22nd overall pick in the draft.
Snell and Bullock highlight the workout; both are projected as late first-round or early second-round picks. Goodwin is also considered an early second-round pick.
Bullock is a shooting specialist, averaging 13.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game in his junior year at UNC, shooting 47.6% from the field and an impressive 42.9% from the college 3. He attempted more three-pointers per game (5.8) than two-pointers (4.4). Snell, also a junior, is a bit longer than Bullock but put up less impressive per-game numbers. Goodwin, an 18-year-old freshman, averaged 14.1 points per game in his only season at Kentucky, shooting 44% from the field. He was born 50 days after the 1994 NBA Draft, when the Dallas Mavericks selected Jason Kidd.
