The Brooklyn Nets have invited shooting guard Michael Snaer from Florida State University, who was not drafted, to training camp in October, according to FSU beat writer Bob Ferrante.

Snaer, 23, played all four years of his college career with the Seminoles where he shot 42.5 percent and averaged 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game in 134 games. While in school, he led the Seminoles to their first ACC Tournament championship, earning MVP honors, in 2011-12. He’s known as a strong perimeter shooter who plays on both ends of the court.

Despite going undrafted, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard participated in seven summer league games for both the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers. He shot 33.3 percent while averaging 5.5 points per game in 11.5 minutes in two games for the Thunder. For the Lakers, he shot 34.4 percent and averaged 6.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 18.6 minutes in five games.

The Nets have one open spot on their roster and normally invite three or four players like this to try to fill that final spot. If he doesn’t make the Nets roster, the final three cuts in training camp are assigned to their D-League affiliate the Springfield Armor.
