Nets Expected To Sign Paul Zipser To Two-Way Contract

Former Bulls forward Paul Zipser appears to have lined up a deal with the Nets, according to reports from German outlet Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung and Emiliano Carchia of Sportando (Twitter link).

The RNZ story indicates that Zipser has an agreement in place with Brooklyn, while Carchia hears that it’s for a two-way contract. According to Brian Lewis of The New York Post (Twitter link), the Nets have yet to confirm or deny that they’re adding the 24-year-old.

Zipser, a second-round pick in the 2016 draft, had a decent rookie year, but averaged just 4.0 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 54 games (15.3 MPG) for the Bulls last season. He was waived by Chicago in July in order to create the cap room necessary to finalize the signing of Jabari Parker.

The Nets are currently one of a handful of teams around the NBA with an open two-way contract slot. The club released one of its two-way players, Alan Williams, last week in order to allow him to pursue an opportunity in China.

Teams have until January 15 to sign players to two-way contracts for the 2018/19 season, so Zipser has a week to finalize his reported deal with Brooklyn.
