25. Brooklyn Nets – Chris Duarte, G, Oregon

The Brooklyn Nets have one of the league’s most top-heavy rosters and are extremely talented with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden at the top. They will need to find value, assuming they keep this pick. Chris Duarte, a seasoned 6-foot-6 guard out of Oregon, would be a potential fit.

Duarte would give the Nets some depth to the backcourt, especially if they aren’t able to re-sign Spencer Dinwiddie, and a potentially good shooter – he shot 44 percent from 3-point range during his senior season at Oregon.

At the very least, Duarte will give the Nets a player that they can play situationally. If he becomes a better player than many project him to be, it’d be a blessing in disguise for the Nets.
