The Nets‘ preseason roster is back to the 20-players maximum, with the team announcing today in a press release that it has signed undrafted rookie guards Devin Cannady and C.J. Massinburg. Brooklyn opened up a pair of spots on its roster on Monday when the team waived Deng Adel and John Egbunu.
Cannady played college ball at Princeton for four years, averaging 18.2 PPG and 5.8 RPG with a .416/.360/.869 shooting line in 16 games (36.8 MPG) as a senior in 2018/19. He joined the Thunder’s Summer League roster in Las Vegas in July.
Massinburg also finished up his four-year college career this spring, capping off his time at the University of Buffalo by recording 18.2 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 3.0 APG, and a .399 3PT% in 35 games in his senior season. He played for the Nets’ Summer League team.
Neither Cannady nor Massinburg appears likely to make the Nets’ regular season roster, given the lack of available spots. But the duo could suit up for the Long Island Nets, Brooklyn’s G League squad. Today’s deals will give Brooklyn the opportunity to designate both Cannady and Massinburg as affiliate players.
