The Nets are now looking at European and other international players as a way to compensate for a lack of picks and a lack of flexibility after their (European) owner decided last year that the future is now.
“(Fran Frischilla) I would say they’re as serious about developing international talent as many in the NBA have become,” he told (Alex) Raskin, explaining: “[The Nets] have recognized the value of finding another source of talent.”
