    Roberson, Shumpert, Vonleh Waived by Nets; Signed Tyler Cook

    Andre Roberson, Iman Shumpert, Noah Vonleh Waived by Nets; Signing Tyler Cook
    by, BLAKE SCHUSTER

    The Brooklyn Nets waived Andre Roberson, Iman Shumpert and Noah Vonleh on Tuesday ahead of the deadline to guarantee their contracts, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Additionally, the Nets signed forward Tyler Cook to a 10-day contract.

    The moves give Brooklyn the ability to make another acquisition at the trade deadline as it prepares for a postseason run anchored by the Big Three of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden.

    Roberson and Shumpert both played in Brooklyn's 127-118 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. Roberson missed all three of his field-goal attempts but notched four rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes. Shumpert added two points and one rebound in six minutes.

    Heading into Tuesday, their averages left plenty to be desired.

    Roberson: 0.0 points, 1.0 rebound, 0.0 assists
    Vonleh: 0.0 points, 0.3 rebounds, 0.3 assists
    Shumpert: N/A
    Cook, 23, split time with the Denver Nuggets and Cleveland Cavaliers in 2019-20, averaging 1.8 points and 1.1 rebounds in 4.2 minutes per night across 13 appearances. He'll provide the Nets with a bit more frontcourt depth as they look to solidify their roster before the trade deadline.

    ---

    In other words, they won't be missed.

    It does suggest that they are preparing another move. Might it be the long rumored Drummond deal?
