    Default Nets Looking To Trade Down

    NEW YORK – New Jersey Nets general manager Rod Thorn remains uncertain whether he wants to hold onto the third pick to draft Derrick Favors and is aggressively entertaining trade bids, league sources said.

    “Rod doesn’t love that spot right now,” a source with knowledge of the Nets’ thinking said. “He’s willing to get out of there and go down.”

    The Detroit Pistons would love to get to No. 3 and draft Kentucky center DeMarcus Cousins, sources said, but the two teams haven’t been able to get anywhere on a possible package. The Pistons engaged Sacramento on the fifth spot, but Kings GM Geoff Petrie wants to take Cousins and keep him.

    Detroit is no longer making calls to move up and is planning to use its pick at No. 7, league sources said. Georgetown’s Greg Monroe tops Ed Davis on the Pistons’ board.

    Thorn plans to draft Favors, the Georgia Tech freshman, should he keep the pick. Nevertheless, Favors is still seen as a young prospect who will likely have to wait two years to develop into a productive player. For the right package, sources said Thorn would be willing to drop down and take Monroe or Baylor’s Epke Udoh.

    If I was BC I would be doing w/e I could to get that pick and I would take Wes Johnson with it I really like his game and would take him over Cousins and Favors.

    Third certainly isn't as good as 1st or 2nd, but I personally think there's a big drop off after three. I think trading down would be a bad move for the Nets. I don't see at all how Colangelo would move up there (maybe trading Bargnani?) but I'm hoping he's trying his best. If the Raptors could end up with Favors, I'd be ecstatic.

    That has the Pacers going after it pretty hard.

    Definitely Favors. Favors has a legit chance to be an all-star a couple years down the road. Johnson is probably more ready but I don't think his peak is as high. Which is why NJ's bluff was kind of stupid and failed for obvious reasons. That's assuming Kahn is right in the head though, of course.
