Brooklyn Nets sign Sean Kilpatrick to multi-year contract

Published 2 Comments

The Brooklyn Nets have signed Sean Kilpatrick to a multi-year contract. The team is yet to release the details of the new deal.

Kilpatrick took advantage of the two 10-day contracts the Nets handed to him, appearing in nine games, averaging 11.9 points while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 47.1 percent from three-point range in 19.1 minutes per game. He has scored double figures six times, including each of the last four games.

The guard is now happy he has signed a contract with the team that was a few miles away from where he grew up.

He said according to the Nets' website: "It’s not every day that you get a New York kid playing for a New York team like this. Growing up, this is a kid’s dream coming out of New York to come here and play for basically their hometown. There are a lot of guys I know in the NBA from New York that would die for a position like this.”

Before joining the Nets,  Kilpatrick had travelled across the USA to try and find a new team, and he is glad his family never gave up on him during that time.

“My family never gave up on me. My mom especially, she was with me throughout – every night, day in day out, my dad as well. I really commend those people on supporting me through everything I’ve done.

"My family and friends, they’ve done the same thing, my little brother just constantly kept up, telling me keep pushing, keep striving and everything will work out on its own.”
