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.
