From the NY Post:
There has been a lot of discussion about the Nets trading their No. 11 pick. Team pres Rod Thorn in the past labeled it "highly unlikely." And while admitting nothing is etched in stone, GM Kiki Vandeweghe said today he doesn't see a trade happening, either.
"Anything's possible," Vandeweghe offered. "But I think we'll get a real good player at 11. I've seen enough now and we've got more good players coming in. There'll be a very, very good player there at 11 so right now we're not looking to trade this pick."
The 11th pick is funny. I don't know who they'll pick there. And I don't think there's any established player to trade for. Maybe Amare Stoudemire, but it may not be worth it.
New Jersey has looked at a lot of guys. Guards and Forwards alike. Earl Clark and James Johnson had a joint workout yesterday, but not much surfaced from that except that they got winded.
Right now, there's a lot of info coming out saying that New Jersey likes the point guards, namely Jonny Flynn and Ty Lawson. I get that they need another point, but it makes no sense to spend a lottery pick on someone you know is going to be a backup behind Devin Harris and Keyon Dooling.
There's always a problem when a team drafts based on best-available.
