The Long Islands Nets have signed point guard Marcus Zegarowski and power forward RaiQuan Gray, making them the final two players from the 2021 NBA draft to either sign in the NBA, G League or overseas, as relayed by Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors.
Both Zegarowski and Gray were drafted by the Nets in the second round and played for their summer league squad.
Zegarowski, 23, is 6-foot-2 and was selected with the No. 49 overall pick out of Creighton. He entered the draft as a junior after averaging 15.8 points and being named first-team All-Big East.
Gray, 22, is 6-foot-8 and averaged 11.9 points and 6.4 rebounds as a junior last season at Florida State. He was drafted with the No. 59 overall pick.
The ‘draft rights player’ rule allows a G League club to add a player who was drafted by its parent NBA team, assuming that player signs an NBAGL contract,” Adams wrote. “If a player takes that path, his NBA rights are retained by the team that drafted him, as if he were a draft-and-stash prospect.”
