Nets host pre-draft workouts this week

The Brooklyn Nets, who pick 22nd in the June 27 NBA draft, will host workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday at their practice facility in East Rutherford, N.J.

A look at the prospects participating:

Tuesday

Vincent Council, PG, Providence

Ray McCallum, PG, Detroit

Dami Sapara, SG, College of the Ozarks

Allen Crabbe, SG, California

Reggie Johnson, C, Miami

Jeff Withey, C, Kansas

Wednesday

Chris Flores, PG, NJIT

Tyler Brown, SG, Illinois State

Archie Goodwin, SG, Kentucky

A.J. Davis, SF, James Madison

Tony Snell, SF, New Mexico

Reggie Bullock, SF, North Carolina

ESPN's Chad Ford, in his latest mock draft published June 4, has the Nets taking Louisville center Gorgui Dieng.

Writes Ford:

The Nets got a great season out of Brook Lopez, but they don't really have a credible backup for him. Dieng's play in the NCAA title game gave him a big boost in his draft stock. Not only can he block shots, but he's also a surprisingly good passer and is developing a nice face-the-basket game. Maybe more important to the Nets, he should be able to play right away.
