With the 14th pick in the draft, the New Jersey Nets select ...
Wesley Person, shooting guard from Auburn University
"Wesley stood out to us on our draft board at this point in the round. While will struggle to bring his game to the pros in some ways, we think he has the potential to be a strong guard in this league, at least in a role coming off of the bench. He will need to work on his defensive game, but he has a well-rounded offensive game, can handle the ball, and see the court. On top of that, his teammates love what he does both on and off the court, and that's the kind of guy we need in Newark."
