Nets Hosting More Pre-Draft Workouts

The New Jersey Nets are hosting private workouts for a half-dozen 2011 NBA Draft prospects Monday and Tuesday at PNY Center in East Rutherford, N.J. Here is a look at the participants each day.

Monday, June 6

Chaison Allen, SG, Northeastern
Jereme Richmond, SG, Illinois
Travis Leslie, SG, Georgia
Lacedarius Dunn, SG, Baylor
LaVoy Allen, PF, Temple
Jamel McLean, PF, Xavier

Tuesday, June 7

Xavier Silas, PG, Northern Illinois
Iman Shumpert, SG, Georgia Tech
DeAndre Liggins, SG, Kentucky
Corey Fisher, SG, Villanova
Antonio Pena, PF, Villanova
Alex Tyus, PF, Florida

The Nets have the 27th pick in the first round of the draft. If these workout names are any indication the Nets are looking seriously at trying to find some outside shooting to complement point guard Deron Williams and center Brook Lopez. Seven of these 12 players are shooting guard. That would make sense as a knock-down shooter is something the Nets really do not have.
