It ain't the NCAA Final Four, but considering the Nets' luck with Krstic and Stefanski's European scouting trips, here are some videos of some of Europe's best young players, some of whom have been slated for the Nets on mock drafts.

These are not highlight reels, but full game videos from last summer's European U18 championships in Zaragoza, Spain. Among the players featured are 7'0" C-PF Johan Petro of France who is less raw than I thought; 6'11" PF-SF Nemanja Aleksandrov of Serbia, who is more raw than I thought; two great young point guards, 6'5" Sergio Rodriguez of Spain, the tournament MVP, and 6'6" Uros Tripkovic of Serbia, a former Krstic teammate; and two very good shooting guards, 6'6" Marco Belinelli of Italy, the tournament's high scorer, and 6'5" Rudy Fernandez of Spain.

All but Belinelli have been projected as first round picks either this year or next year.

Johan Petro is No. 10 for France, Marco Belinelli is No. 9 for Italy

Full game videos? SWEET!

I'm gonna take a look tonight, thanks.

I for one am not against bringing in another 'Euro', they just are able to compete sooner, if you draft an older 'Euro', or so it seems.

Same with most teenagers. It's a rare teenager that can adapt that fast. Maturity is the big issue. Dwight Howard has it. Kwame Brown STILL doesn't.
And remember, Krstic was the youngest player drafted in 2002. They could do it again.
