The Brooklyn Nets and Sean Kilpatrick are on the verge of completing a multi-year deal, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Kilpatrick, who earned a second 10-day contract after his D-League call-up in late February, will have a guarantee for the 2016-2017 season. The sharpshooter had short stays with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets in the past, but hasn’t had any guaranteed deals up until this point.
For the Nets, his 15-31 mark (48%) from behind the arc has been a bright spot, filling a major role in the rotation already. In fact, the Nets have been closing games with Kilpatrick as of late, so both general manager Sean Marks and interim head coach Tony Brown must be impressed. He’s scored 19 points for Brooklyn in 3 of his 8 games and will look to keep it rolling tonight against the Chicago Bulls.
Kilpatrick went undrafted in 2014 and has bounced around since then — so to finally gain some security and guarantee must be huge for the 26 year-old.
