9:00am: The Nets officially signed Luwawu-Cabarrot to his second 10-day contract, the team announced in a press release. The deal will run through February 3, at which time Brooklyn will either have to re-sign TLC to a standard deal or let him return to the free agent market.
8:37am: The Nets will sign forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to a second 10-day contract, tweets Bleacher Report’s Michael Scotto. Brooklyn inked the swingman to a 10-day deal on Jan. 15 as his 45-day window as a two-way player was set to expire. That first 10-day deal expired on Friday night.
Since signing the first 10-day pact, Luwawu-Cabarrot appeared in four games with Brooklyn, averaging 6.0 PPG. In 21 total games this season, the France native is averaging 5.0 PPG and 2.3 RPG.
“He’s still a very young player, and I think that was the thought process when we brought him in,” Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson recently said of Luwawu-Cabarrot (via NetsDaily). “He’s a guy that has played minutes in the NBA, played a decent sample size of minutes, but he’s still young, hasn’t found his mark yet in the league. But he’s still young. Let’s take a shot at him.”
The 2016 first-round pick (24th overall) has played for the Sixers, Thunder, Bulls and Nets.
