If you thought Nate Sestina was heading overseas to start his professional basketball career, think again.
Though he signed a contract in Russia earlier this fall, the former UK grad transfer will get a chance to earn a spot in the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets signed Sestina to an Exhibit-10 contract, per Jon Chepkevich.
Exhibit 10 deals are one-year contracts for the league minimum salary. They come with an optional bonus of up to $50K if the player doesn’t make it in camp but hangs around the organization’s G-League affiliate. These deals are fairly new to the NBA system and this one gives Sestina a chance to team up with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and maybe James Harden on an East contender.
Good luck to Nate in camp in Brooklyn.
