Josh Gasser Set to Join Nets’ Summer League Team

After two strong additions to the roster on Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets have continued to add to their summer league roster by signing former Wisconsin PG John Gasser.

Gasser is 6’3 and weighs in at around 190 pounds. He averaged 6.6 ppg and 1.8 apg on nearly 40 percent shooting from behind the arc as a Badger. At Wisconsin Gasser lined up with two first round picks in Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker and played in the National Championship game, where the Badgers fell to the Duke Blue Devils.

It is important to note that in October 2012, Gasser suffered a Torn ACL and was pronounced out for the season.

The addition of Gasser is curious, as the Nets’ summer league roster is already stacked with guards. Ryan Boatright who was signed yesterday, along with 2014 draftee Xavier Thames and Markel Brown are all expected to line up at the point for Brooklyn and after looking at Gasser’s lackluster collegiate numbers, the move is questioning.

The Nets seem to be investing heavily in summer league which is good to see. Competing in both the Las Vegas and Orlando leagues, they look to be fielding a competitive roster and will likely challenge for the title.
