For the second time this offseason, the Brooklyn Nets waived a played the day after he inked a deal with the team. Forward Paul Eboua was waived on Saturday, along with guard Elie Okobo. But, their departures came before Nets fans had a chance to get to know either player — unlike Chris Chiozza’s. The point guard was also waived Saturday after spending the majority of 2019-20 with the Nets, playing quite a bit for the team in the bubble and receiving a qualifying offer from Brooklyn before this season’s training camp.
As the Nets widdled their roster down to 17 players, Brooklyn elected to turn rookie Reggie Perry’s contract into a two-way deal. The 57th overall pick in the 2020 NBA draft has received praise from the like of DeAndre Jordan and Jeff Green, along with head coach Steve Nash after he appeared in the Nets’ preseason wins over the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics.
