Nets Waive McLaughlin, Omot; Pinson To Get Two-Way Deal

The Nets are making a series of roster moves, announcing in a press release that they’ve waived guard Jordan McLaughlin and forward Nuni Omot. Additionally, Brooklyn is converting Theo Pinson‘s Exhibit 10 contract into a two-way deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

The news on Pinson comes as no surprise, since general manager Sean Marks all but confirmed last month that the Nets would eventually make the former UNC guard their second two-way player. Alan Williams currently fills Brooklyn’s other two-way contract slot.

As for McLaughlin and Omot, the two camp invitees were always considered likely to be waived at some point before the regular season begun. They’re both candidates to end up on Brooklyn’s G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, and will be eligible for bonuses worth up to $50K if they play for the Nets’ NBAGL team for at least two months.

The Nets now have 18 players under contract, so they’ll have to make one more roster move to reach the regular season limit even after converting Pinson. Mitch Creek, the only other player on a non-guaranteed contract, is the most likely casualty of the roster crunch.
