Former Indiana Pacers guard Edmond Sumner worked for the Brooklyn Nets and will return to their roster.
It looks like the guard has been working really hard on his game this season.
Nets insider Brian Lewis of The New York Post reports that Sumner has been working hard on his skills this off-season, even the day before his wedding.
Sumner’s trainer Mike Robertson discussed his work ethic this summer.
“Ed is simply the most pro you’ll meet, in the sense that he doesn’t miss any days. This man is literally training; this man was training the thursday before his wedding. He got married on a Friday, came in on Sunday before honeymooning,” Robertson told the Post. “He just doesn’t miss days. He doesn’t skip workouts. That’s proof of who he is and the kind of man you get there. He’s just a great person. He’s going to beat the clock. He will continue to work hard not only for himself, but also for the others around him. And he’s just a world-class human being. [Nets fans] will love him.”
Nets fans can expect a big leap in development for the Sumner.
Edmond Sumner was originally drafted 52nd overall by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2017 NBA draft.
He finally made his Pacers debut on April 10, 2018, averaging 5.7 points, 1.1 assists, and 1.5 rebounds per game.
