Still, our sources familiar with the Brooklyn front office indicate that ownership is behind the team's investment in analytics, while GM Billy King has little interest. Dating back to his time with the Philadelphia 76ers, King has consistently undervalued draft picks in favor of expensive free-agent contracts. The Nets don't own their first-round pick outright until 2019, having traded the maximum number of picks in that span to the Boston Celtics along with the right to swap picks this year (with the Atlanta Hawks) and in 2017 (with the Celtics). King infamously tossed a barely protected lottery pick to Portland for Gerald Wallace, allowing the Blazers to nab Damian Lillard. ESPN.com

Nets Daily: TRob 10-day starts tomorrow. At end of that 10-day, Nets can sign him to another or dump him. If they keep him, he's eligible for playoffs. In theory, someone can claim him off waivers but would have to pick up remaining salary and take full $3.6m him on salary cap. Unlikely Twitter @NetsDaily

Jeff Goodman: Thomas Robinson needs to clear waivers tomorrow and told ESPN he then intends to sign with the Nets. We'll see if that added athleticism translates to more wins, but it definitely provides this team with a different look than it had before. Twitter @GoodmanESPN

Tim Bontemps: Source confirms Nets to sign Thomas Robinson to a 10-day. Team initially wasn't interested but changed its mind over the weekend. Twitter @TimBontemps


Deron Williams and Joe Johnson move up a few spots in a list topped by their former head coach.
