The Nets have opened contract extension talks with Gerald Wallace, general manager Billy King confirmed.

"We've had conversations with his representatives because actually we can talk about the potential of [an] extension if he opts in,” King said. “We'll leave that there."

The Nets are hosting a draft combine this weekend at their practice facility.

"The one thing I learned from Donnie Walsh when I was an assistant coach in Indiana, he said, 'If this is where you're making your evaluation, you're too far behind,'” King said. “We've seen these guys play 5-on-5 in college, so this is just another part of the process. What we base our decision on is really what they've done with their college program. This is more just to get their real measurements, see if they pick up the NBA pick-and-roll and the coaching."
