Nets Ink Greivis Vasquez to One-Year Deal

by July 11, 2016

Veteran guard Greivis Vasquez is off the free agent board, having agreed to a reported one-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

The 29-year-old’s season with the Milwaukee Bucks was derailed by a right ankle injury.

Per Yahoo:

The Nets lost out on Portland’s Allen Crabbe and Miami’s Tyler Johnson when those players had offer sheets matched on Sunday.

 

Vasquez will join free agent guard Jeremy Lin as two additions to coach Kenny Atkinson’s backcourt. The Nets drafted Seton Hall guard Isaiah Whitehead in the second round.

 

In six NBA seasons – with Memphis, New Orleans, Sacramento, Toronto and Milwaukee – Vasquez has averaged nine points and 4.8 assists per game.
