Nets Acquire 42nd Pick, Draft Isaiah Whitehead

The Nets have acquired another draft pick, as the Jazz agreed to trade the 42nd choice to Brooklyn in exchange for pick No. 55 and cash, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. The Nets used that pick to take Seton Hall shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead.

The 6’5″ freshman turned into a dangerous 3-point weapon for the Pirates, connecting on 37% from long distance while averaging 18.2 points and 5.1 assists per game. He led Seton Hall to an upset of national champion Villanova in the Big East title game.

Whitehead was ranked as the 52nd best prospect in this year’s draft by ESPN’s Chad Ford and 57th by Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.

If they sign ish smith, parsons and scrap heap someone like al jefferson on 1-2 yr deals, they can already bang with the celtics. They have a decent squad but are sitting as a 4-5 at best

33-36 is a bit generous considering they won 21 games last year. That 33-36 game area is hovering on that “in playoff contention late in the season” area and the Nets are no where near that spot unless they bring in one or two good free agents.
