The Nets have signed Chris McCullough to a multiyear deal, the team announced. The forward out of Syracuse was selected by Brooklyn with the No. 29 overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft. There is a chance that the 20-year-old will miss the entire 2015/16 campaign as he recovers from surgery to repair a torn ACL.
The details of the contact were not released, but unless Brooklyn is paying McCullough less than the standard 120% of scale he can expect to earn $1,140,240 the first year, $1,191,480 in year two, $1,242,840 the third year, and $2,243,326 during the final season.
McCullough appeared in just 16 contests for the Orangemen last season, averaging 9.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 28.1 minutes per game. His slash line was .478/1.000/.563.
