The Nets – even after finally gaining control of their own first-round pick – aren’t tanking.
This won’t help, though.
Brian Lewis of the New York Post:
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has progressed nicely throughout his three-year career, but he still has plenty of rough edges in his game – primarily shooting and ball-handling. Brooklyn has made him a small-ball power forward, which means developing skills that weren’t necessarily his focus.
The 23-year-old missing even a portion of offseason training could be significant.
