The Brooklyn Nets will hold a free agent workout camp beginning Monday at their practice facility in East Rutherford N.J., and those scheduled to participate are ex-Pittsburgh forward Gilbert Brown, who was in camp with the Celtics two years ago, former Missouri standout and 2012 second-round pick Kim English, former Sacramento Kings first-round pick Donte Greene, who was briefly a Celtic last offseason, Rick Jackson (Syracuse), Malcolm Lee (UCLA, Timberwolves), DeAndre Liggins (Thunder/Heat), David Noel (North Carolina), DaJuan Summers (Pistons), Scott Machado (Iona), and Michael Snaer (Florida State) .
Now English, an unrestricted free agent, hopes to latch on with another NBA team. Best-case scenario, he said, he gets a fully-guaranteed deal. But he could also end up with a partially-guaranteed deal or just a training-camp invite. “I don’t really want to name them because I don’t want to be premature, but it’s three or four teams that are showing interest,” English said. “But there’s still some really good free agents out there – Gerald Henderson, Brandon Jennings, Gary Neal – so I feel like once that crop of combo guards sign, then it will be my time.”
English remains confident that even if the Pistons decide to part ways, he will find a landing spot. “I’m just playing. I think I’ll be in this league a long time with my ability to shoot the ball and defend,” English said. “I’m just staying in the moment, and I’ll keep playing.” Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said Wednesday that no decision has been made on English’s status.

Detroit Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko was treating the summer like he usually does. Hanging out at the practice facility Thursday morning, he was shooting around with teammates Khris Middleton and Kim English, informally. Then he realized it was time to get formal when new coach Maurice Cheeks walked in. “I had a couple flip-flops on, messing around and he told us, ‘When you’re in there, you’ve got to put in work,’ ” Jerebko said Thursday at the Palace following Cheeks’ introductory news conference. “He told us on Day 1 what he wanted, so I definitely respect that. … I was encouraged. That’s what you want as a player, you want somebody to tell you what to do. I won’t be wearing my flip-flops out there no more.”
