Since January Chiozza has been playing for the Nets’ G-League team, the Long Island Nets after getting waived by the Washington Wizards’ G-League team, Capital City G0-Go, in December. He’s been in and out of the lineup, but has played in five straight games for the Brooklyn Nets, which ties the most consistent amount of games he’s played in for them.

In this recent stint he’s averaged 10.0 PPG, 2.6 APG and 3.2 RPG.
