Default Welcome Marshon Brooks, Bojan Bogdanović, and Jordan Williams to the Nets!

Thank you BK for making a great trade. Hes a great high volume scorer. So morrow comes off the bench now?

I'm going to edit this a bit:
In a draft that surprised both in terms of picks and trades, the Nets traded for Providence's MarShon Brooks, the second leading scorer in the NCAA this past season, in a trade with the Celtics then bought the rights to Croatia's Bojan Bogdanovic from the Heat and finally drafted Jordan Williams out of Maryland.

The Nets sent draft rights for JaJuan Johnson, taken at #27, along with a 2014 second rounder, to Boston for Brooks, who the Celtics had taken at #25. Shortly after completing that trade, the Nets purchased Bogdanovic's rights from the Timberwolves. He's a 6'7" swingman. To complete the deal, the Nets sent Minny a 2013 second rounder. Bogdanovic, a Croatian, was second highest scorer in the Euroleague.

Finally, the Nets used their own #36 pick to take Williams a 6'10" power forward, who averaged 17.2 ppg and 11.5 rpg (third in the NCAA) last season but has long battled weight and conditioning issues.

Word of the Brooks deal first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski as the Celtics picked Brooks. Nets insiders thought early in the draft process that Brooks has as much upside as anyone in the draft, but he never worked out for them, having hurt his ankle just before a scheduled trip to New Jersey. The Nets had also thought early on that Bogdanovic, 21, had first round talent.

So in the end, the Nets end up with Marshon Brooks, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Jordan Williams.
