Nets Sign Ryan Boatright

SEPTEMBER 25TH, 3:35pm: Boatright appears on the team’s official training camp roster, which serves as confirmation from the Nets that Boatright has been signed.

JULY 3RD, 6:50pm: The Nets have reached a contract agreement with Ryan Boatright, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders reports (on Twitter). The pact is for two years, $1.4MM, with $75k guaranteed, Pincus adds. Boatright will earn $525,093 next season and $874,636 for the 2016/17 campaign. Minimum-salary deals for two years or less, such as this one, are some of the few allowed to become official during the July Moratorium.

Boatright went undrafted after four seasons at the University of Connecticut. His career NCAA numbers are 14.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 3.8 assists, with a slash line of .416/.380/.794. The 6’0″ guard will add depth behind Deron Williams if he makes the regular season roster.

The 22-year-old considered turning pro after UConn won the title back in 2014, as he told Hoops Rumors’ Zach Links prior to the 2015 NBA Draft. “Yes, I was going to go pro right after we won,” said Boatright. “I knew my name was hot and I had a great tournament.  However, after I spoke with everyone whose opinion I trusted, I felt like one more year would be good for me.  The last day before the deadline, I decided to go back to school to show everyone that I could run the team and be a true point guard.

      I don’t think he was eligible for the Dleague draft, UCONN alread hit their quota of players in the league!

      • Dyson_fan_10047

        It only cost around 6 million dollars to make a D-league team. I’m sure Uconn has the funds to start there own team. Sorry for the bad username dyson_fan_1-10046 was taken.

          Funny that the username is taken yet he wasn’t choosen. He must be very popular in the d league scene

    Well, I liked the Shane Larkin move for them. Boatright likely went undrafted after Napier had that difficult time adjusting to the NBA last year. He’ll be in the D-league

  2. DurantInDallas2016

    Now a title team with this HUGE MOVE. Is Brookyln in the house?

  3. BoatWrong

    Red Claws are pretty stacked, He wouldn’t be in the rotation. Nets suck so he may play there!

    • Shoot from Half Court

      Only Partial guaranteed so they can cut him and look at other available point guards like aj price or Marcus Williams

    @ Dallas2016-I bet you hope Dallas gets KD as a free agent, you sound like a closet Texas fan!

    If all you loser’s add all the money you will make this year it wouldn’t add up to boat’s firtst year salary.Slink back into your holes.

  6. 3rd string gaurd

    @DannyGirl-your cleaver, did you pick that up in your group home?

  7. DannyBoy

    3rd string guard. Actually being a UCONN fan, I picked it up winning FOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS in 15years.

  8. Andrew V

    Deron is getting no type of playing time with Ryan on the team now unless he goes vintage dwill the whole season

  9. Rudy gay, caron butler, Villanueva, armstong, kemba walker, lamb, andre Drummond, napier are all on nba rosters. I think there is nine last I checked.

  10. On nba rosters. Andre Drummond, Rudy Gay, Caron Butler, Ben Gordon, Hilton Armstrong, Emeka Okafor, Shabazz Napier, Jeremy Lamb Kemba Walker, Charlie Villanueva, Ryan Boatright. Ray Allen isn’t retired yet. I think there is like four d leaguers. The only one that uconn fans ever liked was thabeet because he was a good kid. Everyone at uconn knew he wasn’t a lottery talent. Same with napier. Brimah and Hamilton will be solid first rders next year.
