The Nets do have options with Perry but he’d have to agree to them. He could return to the G League as a two-way player where he’d get a salary of about a half million dollars. The Nets sent him to Long Island last year and he played well, averaging 18.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists with 52/32/77 shooting splits in the “bubble.” He could also be signed directly to the Long Island roster, but at a much reduced number. The Nets already have 15 players signed to standard NBA deals, one of whom, Alize Johnson, will be non-guaranteed till September 4, while another, DeAndre’ Bembry, is partially guaranteed through December 15. They do have two two-ways available, but competition for those spots could be tough as well. Both the No. 44 pick, Kessler Edwards, and undrafted camp invite David Duke Jr. have looked good in Las Vegas with Duke starting all three Summer League contests. And who knows what else the front office is working on?
“He earned it. We’re here in summer league, and he brings it every day,” Ott said. “You saw it in the game. That’s what he’s done every day in practice. His defensive mentality we loved. We thought it fit with that first unit, the style of play we wanted to play here in summer league and for our big club: Toughness, aggressiveness. “We’re out here trying to find guys that want to get after it defensively, and he displayed it every day in practice. He displayed it again [Monday]. He was unbelievable on the point of attack, the ball pressure. … So, we were really happy with the way he played [Monday] and throughout the week before.”
