Okobo (undisclosed) was waived by the Nets on Saturday, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports. Okobo signed a deal with the Nets in late November but ended up never joining the team for undisclosed reasons.
Okobo isn't with the Nets yet and is out for Friday's game against the Celtics, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. For undisclosed reasons, Okobo hasn't been with the Nets. It's unclear when he'll be available, and there's a fair chance he's out for Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Warriors.
Okobo signed a contract with the Nets on Monday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. Okobo appeared in 55 games for the Suns last season but was waived by the team last week. The 2018 second-round pick will land in Brooklyn, where he'll compete for a roster spot in what's already a relatively deep backcourt.
The Suns waived Okobo on Monday. Okobo's dismissal doesn't come as a major surprise with the Suns having already added four guards (Chris Paul, E'Twaun Moore, Langston Galloway and Ty-Shon Alexander) through trades and free agency this offseason, while moving on from only three others (Ricky Rubio, Ty Jerome and Jalen Lecque). The first pick in the second round of the 2018 NBA Draft, Okobo struggled with the jump in competition from France over his first two seasons in North America. He appeared in 108 career games (19 starts) for the Suns, averaging 4.8 points and 2.2 assists in 15.5 minutes while shooting 39.5 percent from the field.
Okobo (ankle) is out for Thursday's matchup against the Mavericks, Gerald Bourguet of FanSided reports. Okobo isn't yet ready to take the court, as he hasn't progressed passed three-on-three and four-on-four work in practice. If the Suns lose Thursday, he'll need to wait until next season to play again.
