Florida State shooting guard Michael Snaer has rejected an offer by the Brooklyn Nets to come to training camp and has instead signed with the Italian League team, Enel Brindisi, according to Enea Trapani of Sportando.

Snaer, 23, is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who played all four years of his college career with the Florida State Seminoles where he averaged 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 134 games while shooting 42.5 percent.

It’s not much of a surprise to hear that he rejected the offer as he will definitely get more playing time in Italy and will make more money there than he would have playing in the NBA D-League. That’s where he have gotten the bulk of his playing time had he stuck with the Nets as they already have a full roster and will struggle to find Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor playing time let alone Snaer.

The Nets could still invite a few players to training camp, mostly as insurance, and assign them to the D-League once the season starts. With no playing time to give out though, any players with other options will likely use those options.
