Hoops: Luke Schenscher and the Nets

Luke Schenscher worked out for the NJ Nets on Friday, and here's what Net's GM Ed Stefanski said:

Schenscher is a legit 7-footer who needs to work on his strength around the basket."

Schenscher, who averaged 10.1 points and 7.3 rebounds as a senior, hopes to follow the path of fellow Australian Luc Longley to the NBA. Schenscher also has worked out for the Knicks.

Stefanski said the Nets, who sold last year's pick (No. 22 to Portland, Viktor Khryapa), intend to keep their first-rounder.
