The Nets have signed undrafted Kentucky stretch 4 Nate Sestina to an Exhibit 10 contract following going undrafted in Wednesday’s NBA Draft. An Exhibit 10 is essentially a training camp invite. Sestina, who stands at 6’9” with a 230+ pound frame, played four years at Bucknell University and one year as a graduate student at Kentucky.
Nate Sestina Rumors
Sestina — a Bucknell graduate, who played as a graduate transfer at Kentucky last year — has been living and working out in Plymouth, California, since April. “I’ve mostly been working by myself because I’m far away,” Sestina said. “My agent is in Oakland. One of his clients — who I played against when we played St. Mary’s — comes with his trainer to work out once or twice a week.” Sestina is staying at a winery owned by the boss of former Bucknell teammate Matt O’Reilly. The winery has a full-court gym and a pool.
Sestina said right now his focus was on playing in the NBA. “I’m really waiting it out,” Sestina said. “I’ve had a couple of good offers to play overseas, but the opportunity to get my foot in the door with an NBA team — or on a two-way contract with a G-League team — is more appealing to me. If you get even a two-way contract, you’re right there on the fringes of the NBA.” Sestina said he had a “bunch of good interviews” with NBA teams virtually in May.
