2012 NBA Draft: Ashton Gibbs Will Participate In Workout For New Jersey Nets

The New Jersey Nets don't have to worry about playing any games this time of year so they can focus all of their energy on trying to get some new guys onto the team for next year. They've been scheduling some group workouts for their team and Pitt's Ashton Gibbs will be taking part in one of them, according to our Pitt blog Cardiac Hill.

The Nets are pretty deep at guard and have lots of younger options, so I don't know that Gibbs fits in there as well as he might with a team like the Lakers in need of a sniper or two. But if he impresses enough at the combine, maybe he'll get called back for an individual workout.

New Jersey has an established point guard in the roster in Deron Williams, but he could be leaving in free agency this Summer which would ruin their depth at the position. If they figure out that Deron Williams intends to go elsewhere, Gibbs could be a good depth pick late in the draft.
