Nets Daily: Each team has its own mock draft suited to its needs, whether by position or emphasis on character traits or other biases. In the past and presumably this year #Nets put emphasis on maturity, (seniors/juniors) and big programs. Told last year they had Markel Brown at 22, Xavier Thames at 31, Cory Jefferson at 36. They went 44, 59 and 60. Cost Nets $1.9m.
Lionel Hollins on what he saw in Markel Brown and when he saw it… “He brought a certain quickness and athleticism that we didnt have on the team, so you noticed it at practice, but consistency is something young players have to develop and he and Cory Jefferson are probably our two most athletic kids on the court. Just before we got to the point (where he started), Markel was really, really consistent every day at practice. Every time I watched him, he was showing something that said, ‘I need a chance.’
The Brooklyn Nets recalled guard Markel Brown and forward Cory Jefferson from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League, General Manager Billy King announced today.
A league source said the team has no immediate plans to fill its currently open 15th and final roster spot in the wake of Davies being released. Like Morris, Jerome Jordan and rookie Cory Jefferson — both of whom had partial guarantees — became fully guaranteed by remaining on the roster.
