Brooklyn Nets use team options on Russell, Hollis-Jefferson and LeVert
The Brooklyn Nets have waived three players with training camp invites. Milton Doyle, Jeremy Senglin and Akil Mitchell have been cut by the team. The roster is now down to 17.
This was a formality. The Brooklyn Nets have cut training camp invites Milton Doyle, Jeremy Senglin and Akil Mitchell on Thursdasy.
The roster now stands at 17. That includes two-way contracts given to Yakuba Outtarra and Jacob Wiley.
More from Nothin’ But Nets
The Brooklyn Nets have 15 guaranteed deals. It was always unlikely for either of these three camp invites to upend any of the Nets guaranteed players.
All three figure to land with the Brooklyn Nets’ G-League affiliate Long Island Nets. With the team officially moving to their new home in Uniondale, the three will likely have a larger audience than those who played with the L.I. Nets during its one season stay at the Barclays Center.
That’s a plus.
All three figure to have opportunities to impress and ultimately attempt to make the roster. Guys like Trahson Burrell and Prince Ibeh weren’t given training camp invites. That bodes well for Doyle, Senglin and Mitchell, who got to play with the starters and rotation players with Kenny Atkinson at the helm.
Brooklyn’s calling card has been the teasm’s culture. That culture includes continuity from last year. Guys like Spencer Dinwiddie and Quincy Acy were integral parts of the team’s success down the stretch last season. In sticking with them, and even Joe Harris, who missed much of the year with injuries, Sean Marks has proven that he is to be believed when he preaches that the team is like a family.
That’s what the culture is about.
