The Nets are working out this week at Team USA’s Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs … when they’re not hiking up trails, getting as high as 7,735 feet. That’s 1,700 feet higher than the city! Sources tell NetsDaily most of the team is there with one exception, Isaiah Whitehead, who is at home dealing with a new baby. Colorado Springs may seem like a random place for the Nets to train until you consider two things. HSS Training Center in Brooklyn is occupied with draft workouts and a free agent mini-camp. The other, bigger issue, is that there’s a reason why the Olympic Training Facility is located there. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen, the better conditioning. Altitude improves attitude. And pictures posted by the team show a number of training and strength and conditioning types are on hand.
Eagle told Brian Egan and Michael Smeltz that the he thinks that there are “very few untouchables” (21:03) on the Nets roster, notably rookies Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead and Jeremy Lin, who he believes despite his injury is “in for the long haul.” (21:50). LeVert and Whitehead, he added, are particularly important for Sean Marks and Trajon Langdon because general managers know they “build your reputation in the draft” and the new guys in the front office did very well in 2016.
