Josh Magette is a journeyman point guard, who went undrafted out of Alabama-Huntsville in 2012. He’s a hard worker, who’s a true point guard in every sense. He’s a coach on the floor, always directing his teammates, controlling the tempo and making the right pass.
Magette displayed good court vision and a high basketball IQ, always knowing who and where to make the next pass. He can run an offense to a T. However, Magette doesn’t possess enough skill, talent, or defensive ability to really be an NBA player.
There were times where Magette was too unselfish. It’s in his DNA to make the extra pass and look for the best shot possible, but there were plenty of times where he needed to be confident in his own ability and take open shots for himself. He had to be more assertive to make a real impact and show enough to earn a training camp invite.

Egidijus Mockevicius was one of two non-roster players to get a partially guaranteed contract from Brooklyn after the draft. As a result, it was a bit surprising to see the lack of playing time Mockevicius received this summer.
However, when on the floor, Mockevicius was pretty impressive. He shows good drive on the boards, as well as soft touch around the rim. He has solid size for a center at 6’10, and was a good college player for the University of Evansville.
Mockevicius has the reputation as a fantastic rebounder, as he averaged 14 rebounds per game last season. With the Nets’ Summer League team lacking size and good rebounding beyond starter Henry Sims, it’s puzzling to see Mockevicius receive such little playing time.
Regardless, with a partially guaranteed deal, there’s still a pretty good chance Mockevicius ends up in training camp with the Nets, or at least with the Long Island Nets.
