The Brooklyn Nets started in December and had their best month in franchise history, going 11-1. Kevin Durant and the Nets were on a 12-game winning streak before losing to Chicago on Wednesday night. Not only have Brooklyn’s superstars played out the lights, their role players are also making a serious impact. That’s why it was announced today that the Nets have guaranteed contracts for three key role players for the remainder of the season.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving do a lot of the heavy lifting for the Nets, but roleplaying is always what takes teams to the next level. That’s true for Brooklyn this season as they have a nice rotation of players available off the bench.

The Nets gave fully guaranteed contracts to Yuta Watanabe, Edmond Sumner and Markieff Morris. All three are worthy of those contracts and have all played big roles for Brooklyn so far. New York sports betting sites have the nets at (+675) to win the finals this season.

The Brooklyn Nets will guarantee the contracts of Yuta Watanabe, Edmond Sumner and Markieff Morris, league sources said @hoopshype. Watanabe has grown into one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA. Sumner has played solid backup point guard minutes. Morris shoots 48.7% on 3s.

Three Brooklyn Nets role players received fully guaranteed contracts today

Yuta Watanabe has been one of Brooklyn’s biggest surprises this season. He said his initial goal at camp was just to get into the team and he would go from there. Watanabe has worked extremely hard this season and is one of the top three-pointers in the league this season. His (51.4) three-point percentage currently leads the NBA.

The 28-year-old has found a home with the Brooklyn Nets and is known for his fourth-quarter heroics. Watanabe always seems open to threes in the crucial points of the game and he always delivers. His length on defense and his long-range accuracy have been very effective for the Nets this season.

Edmond Sumner, 26, missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon and has been signed by the Nets to a partially guaranteed contract. Today he received a fully guaranteed contract for the remainder of the season. His 6-foot-4 frame is a length the Nets like to have off their bench, and Sumner plays at a different pace than most.

Sumner will pull a rebound on the defensive end and take it coast-to-coast without hesitation, finishing at 100 mph on the edge. He doesn’t play every single game for the Nets, but he makes the most of his playing time when he sees the pitch.

The last fully guaranteed contract Brooklyn awarded today was 12-year NBA veteran Markieff Morris. He’s only played in 19 of the Nets’ 38 games this season and Brooklyn loves the veteran presence he brings to the locker room. Brooklyn owner Joe Tsai personally interviewed Morris to join the team.
