DURHAM—Mason Plumlee formally began his NBA career Tuesday, as the Nets opened training camp Tuesday at Duke. We'll hear from Billy King later today about why, exactly, he decided to bring his team down there. Plumlee, for one, thought the facility, with two full-length courts, was ideal.
Here's a story from Plumlee's first day of camp. . He talks in said story about what he's planning on bringing to the Nets. Head coach Jason Kidd was asked about that as well.
"He’s 7 feet, so anything by the basket, he’s ready," Kidd said. "What he’s also done is develop a jump shot. He’s a guy that can shoot the 15-to-17-foot jump shot and be comfortable out there. He’s also NBA ready because he wants to get better. He’s not satisfied. You don’t find that a lot in this league, but we have a great one in him, in that sense."
