Nets Sign Deng Adel To Exhibit 10 Deal

JULY 30: The Nets have officially signed Adel, the team announced today in a press release.

JULY 25: The Nets have reached an agreement to sign free agent small forward Deng Adel to an Exhibit 10 contract, league sources tell Michael Scotto of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Adel, 22, went undrafted out of Louisville in 2018. He spent training camp and the preseason last fall with the Raptors, but didn’t make their regular season roster and ultimately landed with the Raptors 905 in the G League.

After appearing in 25 games for Toronto’s G League affiliate, Adel was snatched up by the Cavaliers, who inked him to a two-way contract in January. He saw limited minutes in 19 games for Cleveland in the second half of the season while also playing in 12 more NBAGL contests for the Canton Charge. He became an unrestricted free agent at season’s end.

Once Adel’s deal with Brooklyn becomes official, he’ll occupy one of the 20 spots on the club’s offseason roster.
