Interesting story from Yahoo! Sports that says UK's DeMarcus Cousins and Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors, widely regarded as the two top big men in this year's NBA Draft, will battle one-on-one June 21 in front of the New Jersey Nets.
The Nets own the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft and reportedly have their eyes on a big man to fill a need in the low post. Favors has been projected as the player most likely to be taken by the Nets in most mock drafts, but a one-on-one battle is clearly an opportunity for Cousins to jump up draft boards. It's a win-win situation.
