Knicks' Theo Pinson: Claimed off waivers by Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson was claimed off waivers by the Knicks on Friday, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports. In a corresponding move, Allonzo Trier was waived.

Pinson appeared in 33 games for the Nets this season, averaging 3.6 points, 1.7 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 11.1 minutes. He also appeared in nine G League games, averaging 15.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 32.0 minutes. The Knicks are seemingly opting to get a look at him over the offseason and into next year.

Theo Pinson: Waived by Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson was waived by the Nets on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Brooklyn picked up Tyler Johnson on Tuesday, so Pinson will be cut loose to accommodate the veteran on the roster. Pinson appeared in 33 games for the Nets this season, averaging 3.6 points, 1.7 assists and 1.6 rebounds per contest. The North Carolina product shot just 29.0 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from three.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Recalled from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson has been recalled from the G League ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Raptors.

Pinson hasn't seen much NBA run lately, appearing in just seven games since the calendar hit 2020. He's appeared in nine G League contests, averaging 15.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.8 minutes.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Catches fire in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson poured in 32 points (12-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT) to go with nine rebounds, three assists and two steals across 37 minutes Tuesday in the G League Long Island Nets' 117-110 win over the Wisconsin Herd.

Playing time for Pinson at the NBA level has been scarce of late, so Brooklyn elected to assign him to the G League in order for him to pick up minutes. While the second-year wing was able to take advantage of the opportunity and put up a gaudy stat line, the performance is unlikely to earn him meaningful run with the parent club anytime soon.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Re-enters rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson appeared off the bench in both of the Nets' past two games, compiling 14 points (5-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes between the contests.

David Nwaba's season-ending Achilles injury has seemingly opened up a spot for Pinson in the rotation, but the second-year player will be at risk of being bumped from the second unit once Caris LeVert (thumb) is cleared to return to action. LeVert will remain out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, so Pinson should be in line for at least one more outing as a backup to starting wings Garrett Temple and Joe Harris.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Empty stat line in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson managed just two assists, one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes during Sunday's 103-101 victory over New York.

Pinson played 17 minutes off the bench Sunday but offered very little in the way of statistical production. Pinson has moved into a more prominent role with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) on the sidelines but is not someone to target outside of the deepest of leagues.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Logs 16 minutes in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson pitched in eight points (3-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Monday's 115-86 loss to the Pacers.

Pinson has logged double-digit minutes in each of the last two contests with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Caris LeVert (thumb) out. Pinson had appeared in only two tilts this season prior to this recent stretch. Once Irving returns to the lineup, Pinson may not remain part of the rotation, but if the star point guard sits out Wednesday's matchup versus the Hornets, Pinson could see decent burn yet again.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Expected to see more run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson is in line to see more playing time while Kyrie Irving (shoulder) returns to health, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Pinson logged 18 minutes off the bench Saturday against the Bulls, and it looks as though he'll continue to see an increased workload Monday with Irving out. He finished with 10 points, three assists, one rebound and one steal Saturday.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Sees first minute of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson contributed a rebound, an assist and a steal in one minute of play during Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

Pinson was productive in his first action of the season, though it came in an unfortunate defeat to the Pacers. After averaging 4.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 11.7 minutes across 18 games in his rookie year, it appears as if Pinson's been displaced in the Nets' rotation. There's a good chance he could see time in the G-League this year, depending on the Nets' roster needs.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Re-signs with Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson (back) re-signed Monday with the Nets on a two-year contract, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.

Brooklyn pulled Pinson's qualifying offer over the weekend, allowing him to become a free agent. The North Carolina product didn't wait long to find work, however, as Brooklyn quickly re-signed him once the team had more salary-cap flexibility. Pinson had also been nursing a back injury that sidelined him for Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League matchup with the Hornets, but that's no longer a concern, either. He suited up in Monday's 88-85 win over the Wizards, finishing with nine points.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Dealing with tight back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson won't be available Sunday for the Nets' Las Vegas Summer League matchup with the Croatian national team due to lower-back tightness, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Pinson appeared in 22 games for the Nets in 2018-19 as an undrafted rookie out of North Carolina, averaging 4.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 11.7 minutes per game. The Nets elected to pull his qualifying offer earlier in the weekend, so he's now an unrestricted free agent even though he'll continue to participate with Brooklyn's summer-league squad. Pinson finished with 14 points, six rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes in his first appearance in Las Vegas and apparently injured his back along the way.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Becomes restricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson was extended a qualifying offer by the Nets on Friday, making him a restricted free agent, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.

Pinson saw limited run with the Nets last season, playing 211 minutes as a rookie. While he struggled offensively, Brooklyn still appears to be interested in his services.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Gets standard deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nets signed Pinson to a standard contract for the rest of the season Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Pinson had been playing on a two-way deal with the Nets throughout his rookie season, making 17 appearances at the NBA level while averaging 4.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 11.3 minutes per game. The transaction brings the Nets' roster to the maximum 15 players and will allow him to participate in postseason contests, though he's unlikely to be a regular member of coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation.

Theo Pinson: Hits game-winning three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson connected on a game-winning three pointer in Tuesday's G League Conference Finals victory over Lakeland. He finished the contest with 18 points (8-22 FG, 2-10 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and a block.

Pinson struggled mightily from deep but managed to make the important shots count, knocking down a triple as time expired to send Long Island to the G League Finals. The two-way forward averaged 20.7 points, 6.1 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 0.9 steals in 34 games with Long Island this seaosn.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson is listed as active for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Although Pinson has seen minimal run recently, he could see some minutes against the Hawks due to Shabazz Napier (personal) being ruled out. In 12 appearances this year, the rookie guard's averaging 4.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 14.1 minutes.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Drops 28 on Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson finished with 28 points (10-18 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and a steal in 35 minutes Sunday against the Hustle.

Pinson's team-high 28 points led the Nets to a 137-132 victory. He evidently was feeling it from beyond the arc, as he successfully converted on seven of 12 attempts on the day. The North Carolina product has been playing at a high level throughout this season in the G League, posting averages of 20.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 28 starts. If Pinson keeps it up, there's little doubt he'll get a shot with an NBA team at some point.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Handles large role off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson played 26 minutes and finished with 10 points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds and two assists Monday in the Nets' 113-94 loss to the Bucks.

For the third time in the Nets' past six games, Pinson cracked 20 minutes and flirted with a double-double off the bench. Pinson's recent surge in production has given him some short-term value in very deep formats, but he'll likely be out of the rotation and back in the G League once the Nets reclaim some health on the wing. Joe Harris (hip) is day and day and could be back in action Wednesday against the Nuggets, while both Allen Crabbe (knee) and Caris LeVert (foot) could return from long-term absences to play at some point before the All-Star break.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Sent to G League on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson will be sent to the G League for Friday's game and then be recalled ahead of Brooklyn's contest against the Magic on Saturday, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Pinson has gotten some spot run for the Nets, and has totaled 41 points, 19 rebounds, 15 assists and three steals in 124 total minutes across nine appearances. Still, he'll presumably continue spending most of his time in the G League.

Nets' Theo Pinson: Career night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson totaled 19 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals across 26 minutes in the Nets' win over the Knicks on Friday.

Pinson led the Nets to a win with career highs in scoring and rebounding in just his eighth NBA game, receiving extra playing time with Allen Crabbe (knee) and Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb) out. The strong performance and front court injuries may lead to more NBA action for Pinson, but it's unlikely he becomes a consistent contributor this season.

Theo Pinson: Registers 43 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pinson tallied 43 points (17-29 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists, four rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot in the win Thursday over the Red Claws.

It was easily a career-high for Pinson, but Long Island needed the points in the worst way given they only had eight active players available. Pinson has seen his minutes trend upperwards as of late, averaging 35.2 across 19 games. In those contests, he's putting together some well-rounded numbers, averaging 19.9 points, 6.6 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks.
