Former Princeton men’s basketball star Devin Cannady signed a contract with the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, the team announced on its website Tuesday night.

Cannady is one of the most prolific scorers and three-point shooters in the history of Princeton basketball. Prior to leaving the team during the 2018–19 season for personal reasons, he climbed to fifth on Princeton’s all-time scoring list with 1,515 career points and was third on Princeton’s all-time three-pointers made list with 268.


In his four years at Princeton, Cannady played in 104 games and was a key part of the 2016–17 team, which went undefeated in Ivy League play, won the inaugural Ivy League basketball tournament, and participated in the NCAA tournament. He was also a second-team All-Ivy League selection as a junior in 2018, after leading Princeton in scoring with 16.7 points per game.

Last season, Cannady served a three-game suspension after he was arrested for allegedly attempting to punch a Department of Public Safety officer in Wawa.

Cannady played for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2019 NBA Summer League. The Nets have yet to release the terms of his deal, but the vast majority of undrafted free agents begin their careers in the G League, the NBA’s minor league.
