Nets Acquire K.J. McDaniels

6:33pm: The Rockets will receive cash considerations, not a draft pick, from the Nets in exchange for McDaniels, tweets Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders. The deal is now official.

3:57pm: The Nets will send a future draft choice – presumably a protected second-round pick – to the Rockets as part of the deal, according to a report from The Associated Press.

1:32pm: The Rockets have traded K.J. McDaniels to the Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter links). The deal will save the Rockets roughly $3.3MM, which the team plans on using once the buyout market establishes itself.

Teams cannot take on a player/draft picks from another team without receiving some sort of compensation in return, per NBA rules. It’s likely that Houston will receive either a heavily protected second-round pick or the rights to a player currently playing abroad in the trade.

Brooklyn was about $13.5 under the salary cap after the Andrew Nicholson trade and it had an open roster spot after waiving Marcus Thornton on Wednesday. With McDaniels aboard, the Nets have 15 players under contract, as the team’s depth chart at Roster Resource indicates.

McDaniels shined during his rookie season with the Sixers, but he hasn’t gotten consistent playing time since Philly traded him to Houston at the 2015 trade deadline. The Clemson University product saw 1352 minutes of action during his first half season in the league with the Sixers, but he only received a total of 447 minutes in the two years since.

  1. Love this for the Nets, they’ve had good deadline so far.

      They have no picks, their only hope is trading for guys who with some playing time or opportunity can possibly breakout, I think McDaniels has serious potential.

      • While it’s true they don’t have literary picks, they have late first rounders in a deep first round and their second round pick. McDaniels does have serious potential and I never understood why Houston never tried to develop him. He played amazing in Philly is rookie year. If he gets a jumper he could be a starter in this league. Andrew Nicholson was another good pickup who I like because his ability to stretch the floor. Levert, Whitehead, RHJ, 3 picks from 17, McDaniels. They’re doing a good job.

    McDaniels still has potential to be a rotation guard if he gets the playing time, Atkinson will def throw him out there because the Nets offense is atrocious beyong Lopez and Jeremy Lin is good off the bench, he is no starter.

      They need the help defensively. But ya, after dealing Bojan, they’ll likely lose some offense

        McDaniels will def help them on defense, the Nets will figure out the offense.

      If Lin shows he is healthy, he will not come off the bench. They are paying him way too much for that and frankly the team needs excitement in any form desperately. He can bring a little of that to the starting lineup

    Wonder what the rockets get back? Like a draft stash or can they just send cash considerations back?
