Nets Waive Kaiser Gates, Sign Brandon Rachal

The Nets have waived forward Kaiser Gates and signed forward Brandon Rachal, the team announced today.

Brooklyn still has 20 players under contract, including two-way players Alondes Williams and David Duke, plus Exhibit 10 talents Chris Chiozza and RaiQuan Gray.

Gates, 25, was also signed to an Exhibit 10 contract. It’s reasonable to expect he’ll play for the Nets’ G League affiliate in Long Island. He appeared in 12 games with Long Island last season, averaging 9.1 points per contest on 41% shooting from the floor.

Rachal, 6’6″, turned 23 years old on Friday. He also played for Long Island last season, holding per-game averages of 13.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 28 outings. He shot 54% from the floor and 23% from behind-the-arc (31 three-pointers attempted).

Excluding two-way players, the Nets must trim their roster to 15 by 5:00 pm ET on October 17. The team is looking to rebound after a tumultuous offseason and compete for a title in 2023.
