CDR Happy to be with Nets

Alas, the Money, and the Draft position were NOT there for a former Tiger who's Initials are known as much as his full name..

But, don't think that will stop Chris Douglas Roberts from having a successful NBA Career.

CDR is introduced Monday in New Jersey as part of the Nets Draft Day Haul including Forward Joe Alexander of West Virginia, and Stanford 7-footer Brook Lopez.

After a series of unspectacular Pre-Draft Workouts, including one here with the Grizzlies, Roberts fell to the 10th pick in the second round or 40th overall.

But, as a First Team All-American, Roberts says he's taking it all in stride.

 CDR says he never paid attention to Mock Drafts.. but says he was a bit disappointed in falling to #40.

  Still, he says he has a good opportunity to make the New Jersey Roster, and already knows fellow draftees Brook Lopez and Joe Alexander.

Roberts joins a Nets squad that has only Trenton Hassell as a backup shooting guard to Vince Carter.

Look for CDR to give Hassle a Hassle for that spot.
