The Brooklyn Nets have re-signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a second ten-day contract, the team announced today. Kilpatrick’s first ten-day contract was set to expire today.
Kilpatrick, 26, was the leading scorer in the D-League prior to the Nets calling him up. He signed his first 10-day on February 28th and since played in all five Nets games, averaging 9.4 points in 16.6 minutes per game (20.4 per 36), hitting 41 percent of his shots and 50 percent from beyond the arc. After playing only 29 seconds in his first game with the team, he hit multiple three-pointers in each of the four games after, including a career-high 19 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves on March 5th.
Earlier this week, Nets interim head coach Tony Brown praised Kilpatrick coming off the bench, saying he was impressed with his bench wing tandem of Kilpatrick and Markel Brown.
Kilpatrick is now under contract with the Nets until March 19th. If the Nets want to keep him beyond that date, they’ll have to sign him for the rest of the season. Last year, they did something similar with Earl Clark, re-signing him with a team option for the next season after two ten-day contracts.
