Sean Kilpatrick has impressed since joining the Nets on a 10-day contract and NetsDaily envisions the shooting guard re-signing once his deal expires Tuesday night. The team could opt to sign Kilpatrick to multiyear deal given the 26-year-old’s play during over the last four games, the NetsDaily scribe adds. Kilpatrick is averaging 9.8 points per game while shooting 50% from behind the arc in four games with Brooklyn this season.
Recently hired GM Sean Marks previously expressed his desire to find players for next season via 10-day contracts. The Nets have an open roster spot after agreeing to a buyout with Joe Johnson last week, so signing Kilpatrick would not hinder the team’s ability to add more talent via 10-day deals.
Here’s more from the Atlantic Division:
- Jimmer Fredette has returned to the Westchester Knicks, New York’s D-League affiliate, and he is expected to play in today’s game, Ian Begley of ESPN.com relays on Twitter.
- The Sixers flirted with the idea of adding Dennis Schröder in exchange for Ish Smith, Nik Stauskas and a 2016 first round pick at the deadline and Derek Bodner of Philadelphia magazine believes the team would have benefited from the deal, provided the pick wasn’t the Lakers’ pick or Philadelphia’s own selection. There were rumblings last month that Philly believes Schröder is worthy of a max deal, which is something Bodner doesn’t agree with at the moment.
- The Raptors have recalled Bruno Caboclo, Lucas Nogueira and Delon Wright from their D-League affiliate, the Raptors 905, per the team’s Twitter feed.
