David Duke Jr., who the Nets brought on after going undrafted in 2021, will likely sign his second two-way contract with Brooklyn, per league sources. Duke had been a restricted free agent after playing as a two-way last season. NetsDaily was first with news. The Nets have wanted Duke to accept a second year as a two-way player, but he wanted a standard deal. Ultimately, he agreed to stay with the Nets. He would be paid $502,000 as a two-way, about a million dollars less than if he had signed a standard deal.
Q: Are the Nets done building their roster now? Brian Lewis: Not close. Not by a long shot. Yes, they let their DeAndre Jordan trade exception expire last week, but the Nets have six open roster spots, tied for the most in the entire NBA — three Exhibit 10s, a two-way and two standard spots. The first domino could be David Duke Jr., who rejected their two-way offer and is holding out for a standard deal. But they still have to fill out the rest of the roster. Nic Claxton — whose starts have gone from zero to one to 19 in his three years in the league — has proclaimed himself ready to seize the center spot. But with DayRon Sharpe the only other 5 on the roster, it wouldn’t be a shock to see them look for a backup/competition for Claxton. And if they wanted to appease Durant, they could bring in Carmelo Anthony, a move he’s wanted them to make.
