Nets sign Edmond Sumner

After closing the hiring of TJ Warren through a one-year deal, the Brooklyn Nets have also completed this Tuesday the incorporation of another former Indiana Pacers player who missed the entire 2021-22 season due to injury.

According to information from the journalist ESPN, Adrian Wojnarowski, the New York franchise and Edmond Sumner have reached an agreement for one year. The guard26, suffered a torn left Achilles tendon in September 2021 and has not played an official match since then.

Interestingly, the Nets themselves acquired Sumner a month after his injury from Indiana, but it was a move in response to the need to free up salary, so he was released a few days later. Before his injury, Detroit had completed a solid season with the Pacers jersey as a rotation man. In 53 games, 24 of them as a starter, he averaged 7.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 16.2 minutes.

Thus, the movements in Brooklyn continue waiting for what finally happens with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The latest information suggests the Nets are in no rush to close a deal for either of them, willing to keep both well into the preseason.
