The NBA Draft is just days away and the mock drafts are everywhere you can look.
After making the playoffs in 2019-20, the Nets are looking at the 19th pick on Nov. 18. Here’s a look at who they could select…
PG Cole Anthony (North Carolina)
Brooklyn will want all the weapons it can get as it fields Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant on a star-studded roster this season. Cole Anthony is exactly that, as he can score it in a variety of ways and could come in as a scoring threat off the bench.
PG Theo Maledon (France)
Maledon will have plenty of things to work on to adapt to the NBA after his stint in France. He needs to bulk up in strength and expand his offensive game, but his defense looks promising. He's the type of international point guard who could be the diamond in the rough of the draft.
F/C Precious Achiuwa (Memphis)
This pick is all about size and athleticism. Having a big like Achiuwa who is super athletic, quick, can defend and rebound the basketball slip to No. 19 is a nice get here. For his size, to be able to keep pace with the likes of Durant and Irving, plus being able to provide an extra body on the growing list of athletic fours in the game; you can see where Achiuwa and his 7’2” wingspan can come in and make an impact right away.
G/F Aaron Nesmith (Vanderbilt)
Nesmith might end up being a lottery pick, but his range extends to the early 20s. He’d be a smart choice for the Nets, who’d be adding another shooter alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Having Nesmith plus Joe Harris, who league sources say they’ll likely re-sign, would make them quite a tough cover..
