Nets Sign, Waive Jordan Bowden, Brandon Rachal

OCTOBER 15: The Nets confirmed today that they’ve waived Bowden and Rachal, as expected.

OCTOBER 12: The Nets have signed a pair of shooting guards, Jordan Bowden and Brandon Rachal, to non-guaranteed training camp contracts, according to RealGM’s transactions log.

Bowden, who went undrafted out of Tennessee in 2020, played for the Long Island Nets as a rookie, averaging 7.8 PPG and 2.9 RPG on .436/.362/.500 shooting in 14 games (20.6 MPG) for Brooklyn’s G League affiliate.

Rachal began his college career at LSU before making the move to Tulsa. He went undrafted earlier this year after recording 15.0 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 2.2 APG, and 1.6 SPG in 23 games (31.6 MPG) as a senior.

The signings give Brooklyn a full 20-man preseason roster, but both Bowden and Rachal figure to be waived soon, since they’re likely ticketed for Long Island. The Nets have Bowden’s returning G League rights and can make Rachal an affiliate player. They can also give both guards Exhibit 10 bonuses worth up to $50K if they spend at least 60 days in the G League.
