Tested by the Nets, the French Isaia Cordinier has not convinced the coaching staff to offer him a contract this season.
Invited to come to train in Brooklyn at the beginning of September, Isaia Cordinier wanted to sign a piece of contract across the Atlantic. With a bloated workforce in each position, a two-way contract (deal that allows you to yo-yo between the NBA and the G-League) seemed more appropriate for the Nets. Unfortunately, the test was not transformed by the Frenchie, reports insider Adrian Wojnarowski , this Sunday. Selected at the 44th position by the Hawks in the 2016 draft, the Nets had inherited their rights in the transfer of Jeremy Lin to Atlanta. A Draft-and-Stash profile which has proven itself in the French championship in Antibes and then in Nanterre. In France, Cordinier marked the spirits in 2020, where he turned at 14.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists with Nanterre. This year, it was in the Eurocup that he particularly shone with 15.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists with a selection in the best 5 of the competition at the end.
If the way is blocked to him in Brooklyn, Isaïa Cordinier still has the possibility of bouncing back in another franchise, free from now on to sign wherever he sees fit. Without a contract on European soil, there are still spots available in some rosters via two-way contracts . A chance seized by the other French drafted in 2016, Petr Cornelie. Selected at the 53rd position by the Nuggets, the interior will join Denver next season. He will alternate between the NBA and the Grand Rapid Gold in the G-League, the team affiliated with the Nuggets and coached by former player Jason Terry.
