Nets' Group Workouts To Be Headlined By Promising NBA D-League Prospects

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets' expected group workouts will put a slew of NBA D-League alumni to the test next week.

Starting new week, the Brooklyn Nets will host up to 32 players in organized group workouts. Such a gathering of promising prospects will undoubtedly result in some tough competition, all the while providing Brooklyn with interesting options to explore in the weeks ahead with NBA Summer League coming up, and training camp to follow not long after.

As fate would have it, the group is headlined by a handful of some of the more talented players the NBA D-League has had to offer in recent seasons.

One of the "bigger" names set to hit the hardwood include NBADL Defensive Player of the Year DeAndre Liggins, who spent time with the Miami Heat this season. Also included are D-League champion Trey McKinney Jones, former Utah Jazz swingman Kevin Murphy, Austin Toros first rounder Kyle Hunt, and local Queens, New York product Scott Machado. All spent time in the minor league this past year.

D.J. Kennedy is also set to take part in the group workouts. After emerging as an NBADL all-star in 2012-13, the St. John's University alumni ventured overseas this year to cash in on his minor league success for a more lucrative contract.

His involvement with the Nets next month only proves that such players actually do stay on the minds of NBA executives, should the talent still be present. It'll be interesting to see if Kennedy will end up back in the D-League (should he not make an NBA roster) in the months to come, now that he's been able to cash in a bit.
