Don’t expect the Nets to slow down. There is surely some kind of market for the team’s other veterans, including Cam Johnson.

Don’t expect the Nets to slow down. There is surely some kind of market for the team’s other veterans, including Cam Johnson. It also seems even less likely the team will be interested in re-signing big man Nic Claxton, who has been an alleged target of Detroit in the waning days of the Troy Weaver era.

The Rockets might also not be done dealing. They have the No. 3 pick in tonight’s draft, and it is apparently very much available. A team with an eye on big man Donovan Clingan could be looking to jump up to No. 3 to get their guy. That’s bad news for Detroit who could not only want to draft Clingan themselves, but if he falls past three, he will likely be there at No. 5 and Detroit could deal the pick to the highest bidder, trade down for a wing they covet, and gather extra assets — including maybe a pick in the loaded 2025 draft.

Of course, if the Rockets do trade three and the Spurs grab Stephon Castle as many project, could that mean Reed Sheppard is available at 5? He doesn’t scream a Trajan Langdon-style player — he’s smallish, with a minimal wing span, and will never be mistaken for an impact defender. But the man can shoot and score and spread the floor, and that is the one major priority Langdon highlighted in his introductory press conference.
