Player Profile: Greivis Vásquez – The Journeyman

After their offers sheets for Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe were matched by their original teams, the Nets needed a plan B. They executed it by signing Greivis Vásquez to a $5 million, one-year deal. Vásquez is a combo guard whose value has plummeted after suffering an ankle injury that saw him play only 23 games with the Milwaukee Bucks last season. From the Nets’ standpoint, this makes sense – they’re biding time until the 2017 free agency class comes along. As for Vásquez, he’s probably itching to prove he can still be a valuable contributor in the NBA.
