The Nets have hosted numerous prospects heading into the NBA draft, including top guards Jawun Evans and Terrance Ferguson, per NY Post's Brian Lewis.
An Oklahoma State product, Evans stands at just 6-foot-1, and though the NBA doesn't normally translate well with short guards, he uses inspiration from players like Chris Paul and Isaiah Thomas boost his confidence.
"It just means great things to me, how great those guys [are]: Chris Paul, Isaiah Thomas, just seeing the big roles they play for their teams," Evans said. "So I feel like I can come in, develop that and hopefully one day I'll be as good as them."
Evans averaged 19.2 points, 6.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and shot 38 percent from three in his sophomore season. He believes his shot can develop more in his professional career.
"I feel like I'm developing well as a shooter," Evans said. "I've been in here working on my shot, finding little things just to make my shot better, just help me tremendously. Extending my range out has helped me a lot with the spacing, too. So I just feel like it's helped me a lot."
According to muliple outlets like Sports Illustrated, Evans is projected to be picked by the Nets with their No. 22 pick. He worked out for the team Monday along with Dillon Brooks, Amile Jefferson, Jimmy Hall, Erik McCree, and Derrick White
Ferguson, on the other hand, doesn't have an issue with height, playing shooting guard at 6-foot-7. The 19-year-old won MVP at the McDonald's All-America game last year, and though he tried to enroll into Arizona in the fall, eligibility issues forced him to travel to Australia.
Playing for the Adelaide 36ers, he didn't get much playing time (15.1 minutes per game) and totaled only 4.6 points per game. However, many view Ferguson has an elite athlete that has the body to fit in the NBA.
Ferguson is schedule to workout for the Nets Sunday. DraftExpress.com has the Nets passing over him with the Raptors taking him at No. 23 overall.
