A third week of predraft workouts at the PNY Center opened on Tuesday with a double session, as the Nets welcomed a group of wings ... so, so many wings ... and bigs. The morning session featured guards Diante Garret (Iowa State), Andrew Goudelock (College of Charleston), David Lighty (Ohio State) and Marcus Simmons (USC) along with big men Greg Smith (Fresno State) and Trey Thompkins (Georgia); the afternoon, Bojan Bogdanovic (Cibona Zagreb), Jon Diebler (Ohio State), Delroy James (Rhode Island) and Corey Stokes (Villanova) on the perimeter, with Mike Tisdale (Illinois) and Brian Williams (Tennessee) down low.
Several players were making their second trip to East Rutherford, following an earlier appearance at the group workouts May 7-8.
Teammates Diebler and Lighty seemed to be enjoying the draft process, and the comfort of having a friend along for the ride, though both were realistic about the possibility of going undrafted. Goudelock, a much-less heralded AAU teammate of Thompkins, developed into an impressive scorer who might well be available at the Nets' scheduled picks, No. 27 and 36 overall. Thompkins could fall ahead of that range, going mid-to-late first round, wielding the skills – if not the consistent motor – to play post as he fills out his 6-foot-10, 245-pound frame.
