Nets Bring Back Free Agent Point Guard

The Brooklyn Nets are bringing in some depth at the point guard spot for training camp, having signed free agent Chris Chiozza to an Exhibit 10 contract for his second run with the team. 

The Nets have 12 players on guaranteed contracts, and he'll be looking to nab one of the 15 roster spots coming out of camp.

The 5'11" guard returns to Brooklyn, where he played a total of 40 games across the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. In just under 13 minutes per game, he's posted averages of 5.1 points and 3.0 assists, while shooting 33.7% from 3-point range.

Chiozza has played in parts of four seasons in the NBA, and has himself an NBA ring from his time with the Golden State Warriors last season. 

He has 91 NBA games in total under his belt. He's also suited up for the Washington Wizards (2019) and the Houston Rockets (2019). He holds career marks of 3.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 11.4 minutes per game.

He's also had some run in the G League the past few years, and in a lot bigger sample, has played 33 minutes a game in 70 games, with averages of 13.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.0 steals. 

Chiozza, 26, went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft after a 4-year college career at Florida. He left as the Gators’ all-time assists leader (571).
