SUNDAY, 1:54pm: The Nets have officially signed Kilpatrick to a 10-day contract, the team announced via press release.
FRIDAY, 3:36pm: The Nets are expected to sign former Timberwolves and Nuggets shooting guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN (Twitter link). Brooklyn opened two roster spots in buyout deals with Joe Johnson and Andrea Bargnani this week, so the team doesn’t need to make a corresponding move. It’s unclear whether the signing would be a 10-day arrangement or cover the rest of the season.
The 26-year-old Kilpatrick has been putting up impressive numbers for the D-League affiliate of the Sixers this year. He’s averaging 26.4 points in 38.4 minutes per game with 42.6% 3-point shooting in 28 appearances.
Kilpatrick has seen extremely limited action in the NBA thus far in his career, having made a total of 12 appearances over parts of two seasons. His NBA numbers are 4.1 points, 1.0 rebounds and 0.6 assists to accompany a slash line of .366/.267/.917.
