Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets had the fall back option of free agent guard Greivis Vasquez. The two sides agreed to a one-year deal on Sunday.

The Brooklyn Nets missed out on both of their coveted restricted free agents Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson so they moved on to their fall back option. Veteran guard Greivis Vasquez.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Nets and Vasquez agreed to a one-year deal.


Vasquez played in just 23 games last season after undergoing ankle surgery so those numbers aren’t an accurate indicator of his career tendencies.

He is a versatile option in the backcourt, able to play point guard or off the ball next to the newly acquired Jeremy Lin.

Vasquez is being brought in to score. More accurately to score from three-point range, were the Nets needed help as they were 26th in three-point attempts made last season.

Vasquez is a career .349 from beyond the arc, and that’s including last season’s awful .247 performance.
