A source close to the situation tells 44Sports former University of Evansville men’s basketball standout Egidijus Mockevicius has officially signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Brooklyn Nets. He will attend the team’s training camp, where he will have a chance to make the team. The terms of the deal have not been released.
Mockevicius’ agent, Pedro Power with You First Sports in Miami, Florida, told 44Sports last month the 6-10 center worked out with at least 10 NBA teams during the pre-draft.
In addition to setting Evansville’s all-time rebounding record with 1,260 career boards, Mockevicius also finished the year with 27 double-doubles over 34 games, tying with Pascal Siakam of New Mexico State for the most in the country.
