Michael Snaer says via text that he has been invited to a veterans' camp by the Brooklyn Nets.— Bob Ferrante (@BobFerrante) July 25, 2013
A league source confirmed the invitation. He is the first known camp invitation. The Nets normally invite three or four players to camp, which begins October 1. The Nets have one open roster spot. The Nets' D-League affiliate in Springfield will have exclusive D-League rights to the last three players cut by the Nets.
Snaer, 23, didn't play well at the Nets group workout in May, but the team scouts liked what they had seen of him while at Florida State. Snaer is the all-time NCAA leader with 6 career buzzer-beating, game-winning shots. He averaged 14.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.0 spg, 0.5 bpg, 2.8 TO/pg in his senior season with the Seminoles helping lead Florida State to the 2013 NIT tournament.

Has an explosive first step and brings his good lateral quickness and length to the table when guarding on the perimeter, a fearless defender. Shot selection is poor, will force a lot of bad shots in the lane often times, instead of moving the ball .
