The Nets have waived point guard Marko Jaric, the team announced tonight. Brooklyn added the seven-year NBA veteran on September 30, though he was always considered a long shot to make a roster that already included 15 players on guaranteed deals. Jaric appeared in two preseason games for Brooklyn, totaling three points and seven assists.
The former first-round pick last appeared in the NBA in 2008/09 as a member of the Grizzlies. Before that, he spent three years with the Clippers and three years with the Timberwolves, accumulating career averages of 7.1 PPG and 3.6 APG. The move puts the Nets roster at 18 players.
