Nets Sign Another Former Pacer

The Brooklyn Nets sign their second former Indiana Pacer of the day, agreeing on a deal with guard Edmond Sumner, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

The 26-year-old missed the entire 2021-22 season due to a ruptured Achilles that he suffered in a workout during the 2021 offseason. Woj adds that Sumner has fully recovered from the injury.

The 6-foot-4 guard has been with the Indiana Pacers his entire four-year career. He had his best season in 2020-21, where he played 53 games and averaged 7.5 points on 52.5 percent shooting in over 16 minutes per game.

The Nets earlier signed TJ Warren to a one-year deal. Like Sumner, Warren missed the entire 2021-22 season due to a stress fracture in his left foot.

Brooklyn is still dealing with the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving trade drama surrounding the team. Despite that, the Nets are still adding pieces that, ideally, could still help them win a championship this season as long as their two stars stick around.
