Nets once went entire draft with phone unplugged
The Nets infamously traded Kyle Korver’s draft rights for summer-league expenses and a copier in 2003.
Their 1998 draft was apparently also a doozy.
Former Nets executive Bobby Marks on ESPN:
The John Calipari era in New Jersey really was something.
Yes, this still falls on him, even though he was on vacation. The coach who holds front-office control shouldn’t vacation during the draft.
At least the Nets – who’ve moved to Brooklyn and multiple times turned over owners, executives, coaches and rosters – are no longer awash in ridiculousness. Oh.
