Donald Sloan posted an Instagram this morning to thank fans and express his wishes to stay with the Nets beyond this season. Sloan signed a 1-year deal with Brooklyn in early August for a little over a million dollars and will an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The text reads:

Thank you Brooklyn for giving me a home this year although it was a crazy year and we didn’t accomplish what we wanted it was a year of learning, a year of growing and I’m excited to see the direction this organization is going in hopefully I will find myself back fighting night in and night out in a @brooklynnets uniform next year….. Thank you #brooklyn #barclayscenter #represent #nets #dallas #texasaggies #IMUP

Sloan played in 66 games and started in 31 of them, most notably after Jarrett Jack tore his ACL in January. In 21.6 minutes per game, he averaged 7.0 points and 4.4 assists — nearly all career highs.
