The Brooklyn Nets officially added Norvel Pelle, as the team announced Thursday. The details of the deal were not disclosed, per team policy.
Pelle will add a bit more depth and rim-protection in the Nets’ front court. He averaged 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 9.7 minutes per game with the Philadelphia 76ers last season.
He also appeared in one playoff game for the Sixers in their first round playoff series against Boston. Pelle played overseas before his NBA career.
In particular, he spent one season in Taiwan, Lebanon and Italy respectively, while he played in the G League with the Delaware Blue Coats in four occasions.
He was a member of the NBA G League All-Defensive in the 2018/19 campaign. Pelle averaged 8.7 points , 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 18.1 minutes per contest in his G League career.
