Roberson signed a 10-day contract with the Nets on Friday. Roberson was waived by Brooklyn on Tuesday, but he'll return to the team on a 10-day pact after clearing waivers. He played just four minutes off the bench during his first stint with the team and is unlikely to see significant run for the Nets going forward.
Roberson was waived by the Nets after Tuesday's win over Sacramento, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The 29-year-old signed with the team last week but is being let go ahead of the deadline to guarantee contracts for the rest of the season. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Roberson is expected to re-sign with the Nets on a 10-day contract if he clears waivers Friday.
Roberson is available to play in Tuesday's game against Phoenix, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. Roberson agreed to one-year deal with the team on Tuesday and is already available to play. The 29-year-old wing likely won't take on much of a role, if any, with this Brooklyn team considering he has only appeared in seven NBA games since January 2018 while recovering from knee surgery. Roberson has yet to appear in any games so far this season.
Roberson agreed to a one-year, nonguaranteed contract Tuesday with the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Brooklyn intends to waive Norvel Pelle to make room for Roberson, who will reunite with former Thunder teammate Kevin Durant (hamstring). Though he frequently started alongside Durant on the wing in Oklahoma City from 2013-14 through 2015-16, Roberson won't be in store for nearly as sizable of a role in Brooklyn. The 29-year-old has been sidelined for most of the past three years while recovering from January 2018 knee surgery, making only seven regular-season appearances since that procedure. Though Roberson is healthy again, he likely won't be asked to play more than a handful of minutes off the bench in situations where head coach Steve Nash wants a more defensive-minded wing in the lineup. Since his signing hasn't officially been announced, Roberson presumably won't be available for Tuesday's game in Phoenix, but he could join the Nets in Los Angeles when the team closes out its road trip with games Thursday versus the Lakers and Sunday versus the Clippers.
Roberson tallied just two points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 107-103 loss to the Clippers. Roberson was ordinary on the offensive end, as usual, but his defensive prowess should ensure that he sees meaningful minutes in the playoffs. He may be tasked with defending James Harden at times, so he could could prove to be a key factor in the final outcome. That said, he offers basically no fantasy value.
