Nets Waive RaiQuan Gray

The Nets have officially waived forward RaiQuan Gray, the team announced today (Twitter link). Gray had been on a two-way contract with the team.

The 59th overall pick in the 2021 draft out of Florida State, Gray spent his first professional season in the G League with the Long Island Nets. He signed a training camp contract with Brooklyn in the fall of 2022 but didn’t make the regular season roster and was cut before opening night, ultimately spending a second season in Long Island before being promoted to a two-way deal during the final week of the 2022/23 season in April.

After an underwhelming rookie season at the G League level, Gray emerged as a full-time starter this past year, averaging 15.4 PPG, 7.6 RPG, and 2.6 APG with a .578/.382/.629 shooting line in 18 games (30.6 MPG).

Because the two-way deal he signed in the spring included a second year, Gray remained under contract with the Nets when the ’22/23 league year ended and the ’23/24 league year began. However, it seems he wasn’t in the team’s plans for the coming season after all.

With Gray on waivers, Brooklyn now has Jalen Wilson and Armoni Brooks, who signed with the team today, on two-way contracts.
