HoopsHype Xavier Thames rumors


May 30, 2015 Updates

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. Twitter @NetsDaily

Baloncesto Sevilla, a top team in the Spanish League, has announced that it's signed Nets draft pick Xavier Thames. The 6'3" Thames, taken with the 59th pick in the 2014 Draft, was not signed by the Nets, the only one of their three picks to go unsigned. Brooklyn will retain his NBA rights. NetsDaily

It sounds like the old post-draft line, "we were stunned to see he was still available," but multiple sources tell NetsDaily that Markel Brown, taken by Brooklyn at No. 44 with the Minnesota pick, was No. 22 on the Nets internal mock draft. Moreover, say the same sources, the Nets mock had Xavier Thames going at the first pick in the second round, at No. 31, and Cory Jefferson, five picks later at No. 36. They, of course, were the final picks in the second round. NetsDaily
