Nets Draft 2012: Brooklyn Inks 2nd-Round Pick Tornike Shengelia

The Brooklyn Nets offseason checklist got a bit shorter Tuesday, as the franchise agreed into terms with its second-round NBA Draft pick Tornike Shengelia. According to the SB Nation blog NetsDaily, the contract is expected to be near the league minimum, about $500,000.

The signing, says NetsDaily, brings the total number of player under contract for the Nets to 13. Shengelia, who's for the country of Georgia, has impressed coaches so far in Summer League, as he's averaged 10.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.

Shengelia impressed with his hard nose play, particularly on defense. Only 20 years old, he will be the youngest player on the team by two years and be one of three rookies, along with Tyshawn Taylor, 22, who was also taken with a pick purchased on Draft Night, and Mirza Teletovic, 26.
