Late second round to undrafted.

“He surprised me because he can really shoot the ball. I didn’t know he could shoot the ball quite that well. Again, he’s a strong kid who’s tough and competed, he had a very good day today.”
—Nets General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe

“Antoine did a good job today. In the workout he shot the ball well and competed well against Ramel Bradley. He plays very hard. I wouldn’t call either Antoine or Ramel true points, but they both have true point guard skills. He did a good job of defending the dribble.”
—Nets Director of Scouting Gregg Polinsky

“Laziness drives him to take 500 extra shots a day. Laziness made him work to develop from a catch-and-shoot guy into a diversified player who entered the weekend tied for the NCAA lead in scoring (27.0 points) and on the verge of breaking Hofstra’s 43-year-old career points record.” – Mike Ogle, New York TImes
