The Brooklyn Nets have signed Milton Doyle of the Long Island Nets to a two-way contract, Adrian Wojnarowski has reported. It came just moments after they waived Yakuba Ouattara.

The French guard has been injured. Doyle, a 24-year-old 6’4” combo guard from Chicago, is averaging 21.3 points per game for Long Island along with 5.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists.

Undrafted out of Chicago Loyola, where he played four years, Doyle impressed Nets scouts at the Portsmouth Invitational, a tournament for college seniors. He.

averaged 10.2 points in the NBA Summer League, playing so well that he beat out four-year veteran Archie Goodwin. He was among the last players cut in training camp and was signed by Long Island.
