Zipser will not sign a contract with the Nets, Emiliano Carchia of Sportnado reports. Zipser had agreed in principle to sign with Brooklyn following the release of Alan Williams, who was expected to ink a deal in the Chinese Basketball Association. However, amidst complications, Williams decided not to play in China, and the Nets opted to bring him back on a two-way deal. As a result, the roster spot that was open for Zipser to take has been filled. It's unclear if Zipser will continue to pursue an NBA deal this season.
Zipser has agreed in principle to join the Nets on a two-way contract, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports. The Nets are expected to finalize the contract by Jan. 15. Zipser has already left his native Germany for the United States, so it's expected he'll put pen to paper with the Nets in the coming days. A 2016 second-round pick of the Bulls, Zipser appeared in 98 games at the NBA level over the previous two seasons before Chicago released him in July. Zipser hasn't been playing competitively since being cut loose, but he should be a fixture with the G League's Long Island Nets once he's officially under contract. He'll fill the two-way spot that was vacated by Alan Williams, who recently parted ways with the Nets to pursue an opportunity in China.
Zipser was released by the Bulls on Saturday, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports. In order to make room for Jabari Parker's contract -- he's owed $20 million this season -- the Bulls chose to waive Zipser. The forward appeared in 54 games last season, seeing 15.2 minutes per game and averaging 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds while shooting under 40 percent for a second consecutive season.
Zipser underwent foot surgery on Friday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Zipser missed the final nine games of the 2017-18 campaign due to a broken left foot, warranting surgery. A timeline for recovery has not been provided for Zipser, who averaged 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 15.2 minutes in 54 appearances last season.
Zipser (foot) is listed as out for Wednesday's season finale against the Pistons. Zipser will finish the 2017-18 campaign missing the final nine games of the season due to a foot injury. Prior to it, he played in 54 games, posting averages of just 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 15.2 minutes. It was a disappointing season overall for second-year wing, as his playing time took a hit and he wasn't able to stay healthy. He'll have plenty of time prior to training camp to get back to full strength, but as of now, his $1.54 million contract for the 2018-19 campaign is not guaranteed.
