Nets Sign Nicolas Claxton

Second-round pick Nicolas Claxton has signed a multi-year deal with the Nets, the team announced in a press release.

A power forward/center out of Georgia, Claxton was taken with the 31st pick in last month’s draft and should provide front-court depth behind Jarrett Allen and newly signed DeAndre Jordan.

A sophomore, Claxton was a second team All-SEC selection, leading the Bulldogs in scoring, rebounding and steals. He also blocked 2.5 shots per game, ranking him 10th in the nation.

    I wonder if it’s a 2 year contract or if they used cap space and signed him for up to 3 or 4.

      Based on the order of operations for their moves today, I’d guess cap space.

    He didn’t want to be a low-pick stashed project and wanted to go back to UGA if he was and develop skills there. Supposedly he was assured that he would not be tossed aside. If the Nets made him a promise to keep him in the draft they should follow up on it. So be patient with him fans… PT because of a promise may not be pretty.
