The Brooklyn Nets have made a decision with rookie Kessler Edwards. The former Wave was offered a two-way deal with the team and he has already agreed with the terms and conditions. In Las Vegas, Edwards has averaged 9 PPG to go with 9.7 RPG. Although he struggled in the recent contest versus the San Antonio Spurs, scoring only one point on 0-of-3 shooting in 13 minutes, the organization is convinced that he still has a future with the franchise.

In his time with the Long Island Nets and the first team, Edwards must work on his jumpshot. Yes, it does drop at times, but it can be better especially as he continues to elevate at the next level. There’s still more work that needs to be done there. His perimeter defense has also been questionable because the forward tends to get beaten off closeouts.

Still, Edwards does show great potential with his overall defensive game. Standing at 6’8” with a 6’11” wingspan, this gives the rookie the ability to guard multiple positions. His instincts on that end also serve him well. Once he taps into his true potential on the defensive end, he will be a problem. It’s almost inevitable that he will become a better catch and shooter offensively too.
