Shamet has averaged just 3.9 points per game over his last seven contests.
Shamet posted a 14-point performance against the Hawks on Dec. 30, but he's been unable to produce much since then, topping the five-point mark just twice and shooting 32.1 percent from the field during his last seven contests. The veteran guard has a golden opportunity to make his presence felt while Kyrie Irving (personal) remains out, but he's at risk of falling out of the rotation entirely if he doesn't turn things around soon.
Shamet finished with 14 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one steal across 17 minutes Wednesday in the Nets' 145-141 win over the Hawks.
The bench unit had a major hand in the Nets rolling to their biggest point total of the season, with Shamet's sharpshooting playing no small part. The perfect shooting night was a welcome sign for the third-year guard, who had converted only 19 percent of his field goals through the Nets' first four games. Shamet's rotation spot appears to be secure, but since he'll likely struggle to reach the 20-minute mark in most games and doesn't offer much help outside of the scoring and three-pointers categories, he can be left on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues.
Shamet went scoreless (0-9 FG, 0-8 3PT) in 13 minutes Sunday against the Hornets.
It's been a rough start to the year for the offseason addition, who came over from the Clippers via trade in November. Through three games, Shamet has totaled just 11 points while hitting only two of his 15 three-point attempts. To make matters worse, Shamet has only one assist and one steal in 52 total minutes.
Shamet was traded Wednesday from the Clippers to the Nets Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Clippers received Luke Kennard and the Pistons received the No. 19 pick in the 2020 Draft.
Shamet will provide a three-point presence on the wing for the Nets. That will be especially important if marksman Joe Harris leaves in free agency. If Harris heads elsewhere, Shamet should see a similar workload to what he earned with the Clippers in 2019-20. Last season, he averaged 9.3 points, 2.1 threes, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 27.4 minutes.

Shamet suffered an apparent ankle injury during the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Nuggets and went to the locker room, per the ESPN broadcast.
Shamet limped up and down the court for a couple of possessions before being taken out of the game and going to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return.
Shamet finished with 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, a steal and a block in 27 minutes during Friday's 130-122 victory over the Mavericks.
Shamet shifted into the starting lineup Friday and gave the Clippers another solid offensive option. On a night when Paul George shot 19 percent from the floor, Shamet's outburst was very well-timed. Given this success, Shamet could be in for another start should Patrick Beverley (calf) miss Sunday's Game 4.
Shamet will get the start at point guard for Friday's Game 3 matchup with the Mavericks, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Shamet will replace Patrick Beverley (calf) in the starting lineup. The Clippers went with Reggie Jackson in Game 2, but they'll switch things up and go with Shamet this time. He's averaged 1.0 points, 0.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 13.1 minutes in the first two games of the series.
Shamet (foot) will play in Monday's Game 1 against Dallas, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Shamet missed the last two regular-season matchups due to a left foot sprain, but he'll be back for the start of the playoffs. The sophomore guard averaged 6.3 points and 2.0 assists in his six appearances during seeding play.
Shamet (foot) is considered questionable for Game 1 against the Mavericks on Monday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Shamet's sprained left foot kept him out of the team's final two seeding games, and he'll wait until Monday to make a decision on his status for Game 1. Shamet started three of the six seeding games in which he appeared, averaging 31.0 minutes per contest in those three starts.
Shamet (foot) will not play in Friday's game against OKC, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN reports.
Shamet will miss the Clippers' last two games of seeding play with a sprained left foot, so consider him day-to-day as the start of the postseason approaches. The Clippers will play Game 1 against Dallas on either Monday or Tuesday.
Shamet (foot) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Nuggets due to a sprained left foot, Andrew Greif of the LA Times reports.
This is the first we've heard of the issue, but if Shamet suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Nets, it could partially explain why he had just one point in 32 minutes. Consider Shamet day-to-day and questionable for Friday's seeding-game finale against OKC.
Shamet recorded 19 points (6-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 win over the Trail Blazers.
Shamet saw his biggest workload of the bubble Saturday. He responded with 19 points, which is his third-highest total of the season and a feat he's achieved four times. The performance was also his seventh of the season with at least three rebounds and three assists.
Shamet will start at point guard Thursday against the Mavericks.
With Patrick Beverley (calf) sidelined, Shamet will draw the start at point guard, as it appears coach Doc Rivers wants Reggie Jackson to help drive offense on the second unit. In his first three bubble appearances, Shamet has averaged 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.7 minutes.
Shamet managed just two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 117-115 loss to Phoenix.
Shamet was barely visible Tuesday, continuing to struggle on the offensive end. He is a player with very limited fantasy upside, and the value he does have typically comes from his ability to score the basketball. That in itself makes him a tough sell, and at this stage, you can probably do better.
Shamet (illness) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's opener against the Lakers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
With Lou Williams (quarantine) out and Patrick Beverley (quarantine) questionable, Shamet could see a significant role in the backcourt provided coach Doc Rivers is comfortable giving him 30 minutes out of the gate, which is far from a guarantee. During Shamet's final 10 appearances before the hiatus, he averaged 7.0 points on 5.9 shots, 1.7 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 23.0 minutes.
Shamet (illness) is likely to be available for Thursday's seeding game against the Lakers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Shamet was a late arrival to the NBA bubble, but he got to Orlando over the weekend, and coach Doc Rivers said Monday that he believes the guard is on track to be available. The second-year man out of Wichita State was averaging 27.5 minutes per game prior to the shutdown.
Shamet (illness) is on his way to Orlando, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Shamet has been cleared from coronavirus and will be in Orlando shortly. Once there, he'll have to quarantine in his room and pass two more coronavirus tests. After that, he can join his teammates for practice and, eventually, games.
Shamet has tested positive for coronavirus and is unlikely to travel with the Clippers to Orlando this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Shamet will need to self-quarantine and test negative twice before entering the bubble. It seems likely he'll be able to achieve that before the Clippers start their regular season again July 30 against the Lakers.
