Chris Chiozza proved to be a reliable guard option for the Nets late last season during their playoff push. The 5’11″ guard from Florida averaged 6.4 points, 3.1 assists, and 2.1 rebounds per game in only 15.5 minutes a game with the Nets. That translates to nearly 15 points, seven assists, and five rebounds per 36 minutes.
Chris Chiozza proved to be a fan-favorite during his stint in Brooklyn, so many fans are pleased with this news. The only problem would be: how much would he play? The Nets are currently stacked at the guard position with 11 backcourt players under contract.
Would Chris Chiozza be given a two-way contract? Jeremiah Martin is currently on a two-way deal, meaning the Nets only have one more spot open. Chiozza could be given an Exhibit-10 deal where he is guaranteed a training camp spot, but not an NBA spot.
The Nets were recently rumored to sign another guard in Elie Okobo to a contract, meaning this last two-way contract could become very important. Second-round pick Reggie Perry has yet to sign his contract with the Nets, so he could be another two-way option. Training camp starts today, so the Nets will still have decisions to make in the upcoming weeks.
