Top 5 Players Brooklyn Nets Should Be Targeting in the 2013 NBA Draft

The Brooklyn Nets own the 22nd pick in the 2013 NBA draft, which is set to take place at the Barclays Center on June 27.

The Nets’ first-round pick will be their only pick, because they owe their 2013 second-rounder to the Minnesota Timberwolves from a 2011 draft-night trade for Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic.

Brooklyn has a few holes to fill this offseason, a fact that was affirmed following a first-round playoff exit at the hands of a depleted Chicago Bulls team back in early May. The draft will provide an opportunity for general manager Billy King to target a talented young player who will hopefully make an immediate impact.

The Nets could stand to upgrade at small forward and power forward, but as Tim Bontemps of the New York Post reported, many, including draft guru Chad Ford of ESPN, believe King will use the 22nd pick to bolster the team’s depth at center.

This year’s draft doesn’t feature a lot of clear-cut stars, but there should be a few quality players around when the Nets are on the clock.
