Edwards, 24, went undrafted out of Houston in 2022 and spent his rookie season playing for the Motor City Cruise, the Pistons’ G League affiliate. In 41 regular season and Showcase Cup appearances for the Cruise, the 6’4″ shooting guard averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 25.6 minutes per contest, posting a shooting line of .397/.335/.738.
Hall and Sykes had been on Exhibit 10 contracts and Edwards’ new contract will almost certainly be an Exhibit 10 deal as well. The terms of those deals make them eligible to earn bonuses worth up to $75K if they spend at least 60 days this season with the Long Island Nets, Brooklyn’s NBAGL team.
Long Island has acquired the returning rights to all three players, so Edwards – like Hall and Sykes – figures to be waived before the regular season begins and will likely start the year in the G League.
Brooklyn has 19 players under contract following its latest roster moves, including 13 on guaranteed salaries and a pair on two-way deals.
