Nets Release Theo Pinson

Theo Pinson of the Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have announced that they’ve formally waived Theo Pinson. The shooting guard out of North Carolina spent two years with the franchise, primarily as a two-way player.

Pinson’s deal was converted into a conventional two-year pact in April but he’ll now hit waivers after playing in 51 games with the big league squad. He averaged 3.9 points and 11. 3 minutes in those contests.

The 24-year-old guard went undrafted in 2018. The 2020-21 year on his contract came with a team option so the Nets won’t be on the hook for any salary next season.

The move gives Brooklyn a roster spot, with which they’re expected to sign free agent Tyler Johnson.
