Nets Make Roster Cuts

The Nets have waived Milton Doyle, Jeremy Senglin and Akil Mitchell, according to a team press release. The team’s roster now sits at 17 players.

Doyle and Senglin each signed partially guaranteed deals with Brooklyn back in August and neither player was expected to make the opening night roster. The duo is expected to head to the Long Island Nets, as the affiliate owns each player’s G-League rights.

Mitchell came to the Nets late last month to round out their training camp roster. The Virginia product may also be heading to the franchise’s G-League affiliate, a team he played for last season.

Atlantic Notes: James, Celtics, Pre-Draft Workouts

Rumors are swirling that LeBron James will look to leave Cleveland for a second time after next season and potentially head out west. If he is not on the Cavaliers after 2017/18, James’ departure would have a domino effect across the league. A. Sherrod Blakely joined Mike Felger and Gary Tanguay at CSN New England to discuss Celtics general manager Danny Ainge‘s potential moves if James heads out West and weakens the Eastern Conference.

Blakely believes that no matter James’ future, Ainge should not focus on what’s going around the league, focusing instead on his own team. The Celtics have the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft and are coming off a year where they were the first seed in the East. The Celtics have their own issues to address, including the impending free agency of Isaiah Thomas, Marcus Smart, and others.

In any case, the Celtics are in the best position of any Eastern Conference team to unseat the Cavaliers as the class of division and a James departure after next season only strengthens that.
