The Brooklyn Nets only currently have one pick in this year’s draft, the 22nd pick of the first round. The team has a couple of needs it is looking to address with that pick. They need a backup big man (power forward or center). They also will be looking for a backup point guard, but it is more likely they will get one in free agency than through the draft.
Lastly, they need guys who are good 3-point shooters. Mock drafts have been all over the place with who the Nets will take with their pick. My best guess is Gorgui Dieng out of Louisville.
