The Nets have signed 6’5” Tennessee shooting guard Jordan Bowden to an Exhibit 10 deal, essentially a camp invite. Bowden, who has some 3-and-D potential, went undrafted in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Bowden spent all four years at Tennessee. The Knoxville native finished his collegiate career with averages of 13.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.7 assists before COVID-19 shut down the SEC. He shot 38.3 percent from the field and 28.7 percent from three, a drop-off from his junior year, when he shot 45.9 overall and 37.8. He’s known for his basketball IQ and quick hands on the defensive end.

The former Volunteer ranks 24th in Tennessee’s all-time scoring list with 1,365 points and is only one of four Volunteers to ever total 1,000+ points, 450+ rebounds, and 250+ assists. His career-high came against Auburn on Feb. 22 when he scored 28 points.

Here’s some highlights...

Exhibit 10 deals are one-year contracts for the league minimum salary. The contract includes an optional bonus up to $50,000 if the player does not make it in training camp but is assigned to the team’s NBA G League affiliate. In this case, the Long Island Nets.

Bowden joins former Kentucky forward Nate Sestina as the Nets Exhibit 10 players.
