Theo Pinson: 2 years, $3.1 million (Brooklyn Nets)
Just two days after renouncing his rights to make him an unrestricted free agent, the Brooklyn Nets were able to reach a new agreement with shooting guard Theo Pinson, keeping him on board for the next two years as a low-cost depth play.
Pinson is a name some Nets fans aren’t even familiar with, but he worked his way onto the roster after spending most of the 2018-19 NBA season on a two-way contract.
He only made 18 appearances with the team, averaging 4.5 points in 11.7 minutes per game over that stretch, but he was fairly productive despite his limited minutes and paltry .342/.261/.864 shooting splits. Pinson hasn’t proven much in the NBA yet, but there’s something to be said for continuity and familiarity when it comes to player development, which is what the Nets are going for here.
