Nets Release Marcus Zegarowski

For the second time in less than two weeks, the Nets have waived guard Marcus Zegarowski, per Brian Lewis of The New York Post (Twitter link).

The No. 49 overall pick of the 2021 draft, Zegarowski was a standout performer during three college seasons at Creighton, averaging 14.1 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 4.2 APG and 1.1 SPG on .471/.423/.772 shooting in 92 games (32.2 MPG).

Zegarowski signed a G League deal last offseason and spent his first professional season playing for the Long Island Nets, Brooklyn’s G League affiliate. He averaged 11.6 PPG, 3.0 RPG, and 2.4 APG with an underwhelming .351/.331/.650 shooting line in 21 total NBAGL appearances between the regular season and the Showcase Cup.

The Nets gave up Zegarowski’s NBA draft rights by previously signing and waiving him, but he still might be headed back to Long Island after this second set of transactions, since the organization still has his G League rights.
