The Nets hosted Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins in simultaneous workouts Monday at the team's practice facility.

New Jersey has the third overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

"The workout gave us an opportunity to see the full menu of what both guys could do, what they did when they were fresh, what they did when they were a little bit exhausted, so not only seeing what they can do from a skills standpoint but also mentally, when they got a little bit worn down, how both guys responded," said Gregg Polinsky, the Nets' scouting director.

The Nets already have Brook Lopez at center, so they are expected to look for a power forward that will make for a good pairing.

The consensus has been that Favors is the more athletic player, while Cousins has the better perimeter shot.

"You got a chance to see Cousins step out and shoot the ball, because during the year -- like he should have been -- he was mostly on the block," Polinsky said. "He shoots it comfortably I think to 20 feet. I don't think that's a struggle for him whatsoever, and he'll probably be able to stretch that as he does it more and gets more repetition. Favors is a guy who's still a work in progress in terms of shooting the ball with that type of range, but probably 15-16 feet he looks pretty comfortable."
