Report: Nets sign UNLV swingman Donovan Williams to exhibit 10 deal

·1 min read

As the regular season approaches, the Brooklyn Nets are likely making some of their final roster moves to prepare for training camp.

NBA insider JD Shaw of HoopsRumors reports that the Nets organization has signed the 6-foot-6 wing. Williams averaged over 12 points and picked up three boards per contest in his final year at UNLV. He shot lights out with a remarkable 43% from behind the arc. Williams was an essential part of the Rebels’ 2021 NCAA Tournament bid.

Considering the fact that the Nets have Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons all returning for the upcoming 2022-23 season, they will need shooters to space the floor and a guy like Williams will have an opportunity to earn a spot next to those star players.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, non-guaranteed contract that doesn’t count against the franchise’s salary cap unless he’s moved up to the regular roster. This contract is similar to a two-way contract but doesn’t guarantee him any playing time against NBA opponents.

If he’s waived, Williams will still have the opportunity to play for the Long Island Nets, which would earn him a $50,000 bonus.
