Nets Waive James Mays, Carleton Scott

SATURDAY, 9:07am: The Nets formally announced both cuts via press release.

FRIDAY, 12:51pm: Nets coach Avery Johnson confirmed today that the team has made two cuts, releasing James Mays and Carleton Scott, according to the team's official Twitter account. Both players are expected to join the Nets' D-League affiliate, the Springfield Armor.

Mays, a Clemson product, spent the last two seasons playing in Turkey. The 6'9" forward played for the Pacers' and Raptors' summer league teams in 2010. Scott, who graduated from Notre Dame in 2011, spent last season playing in Austria before playing for the Nets' summer league team this July.

Having also waived camp invitee Stephen Dennis earlier this week, the Nets have now reduced their roster to 15 players. The team could head into the regular season with its current group, though it's also possible that another cut may be coming, if Brooklyn prefers to keep an open roster spot. Josh Childress, on a non-guaranteed contract, figures to be on the bubble as the Nets' 15th man.
