Nets sign small forward Adel to Exhibit 10 contract

Small forward Deng Adel went undrafted out of Louisville and eventually signed with the Cavaliers.

The Brooklyn Nets have officially signed free agent small forward Deng Adel, the team announced in a news release.

The contract is an Exhibit 10 training camp deal, as relayed by Michael Scotto of The Athletic.

Adel, 22, went undrafted out of Louisville in 2018, but latched on with the Cleveland Cavaliers in January of last season. He appeared in 19 games and averaged 1.7 points.

As a rookie, he spent most of his time in the G League, first with Raptors 905, then with the Canton Charge. Overall, Adel appeared in 37 G-League games and averaged 12.7 points and 5.6 rebounds.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum salary deal. It includes an Exhibit 10 attachment, which allows teams to convert it to a two-way deal as they see fit.
