Under the theory that you can never have too many Plumlees, the Long Island Nets have traded for Marshall Plumlee, the 7-footer and younger brother of former Net Mason Plumlee.
The Nets acquired Plumlee from the Agua Caliente Clippers. In return, the Nets traded the 33rd overall pick in the 2018 NBA G League Draft which takes place Saturday. Prior to the trade, Long Island had six picks in the first two rounds, seven overall. The 33rd pick is a mid second rounder. The Nets retain the 14th and the 22nd picks in the first round as well as the 29th, 31st and 41st picks in the second round and the 67th pick in the third round.
Plumlee, 26, appeared in eight games for the Milwaukee Bucks as a two-way player last season, as well as 27 games (25 starts) for Agua Caliente and 13 games (four starts) for the Wisconsin Herd in the NBA G League.
The Duke alumnus has played in 29 career NBA games over two seasons with New York and Milwaukee, recording career averages of 1.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 7.7 minutes per contest. In 55 career NBA G League games with Westchester, Agua Caliente and Wisconsin, Plumlee holds averages of 10.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 blocks in 27.9 minutes per game.
