The Brooklyn Nets made their big move at the deadline as they brought in Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond to help the team chase down a title, and now, they need to make moves around the margins in order to get the team closer to that championship expectation.
They made a nice move in the buyout market as they brought in Goran Dragic who was bought out by the San Antonio Spurs after he was acquired by the Toronto Raptors. Dragic is a 13-year veteran with tons of experience and he will bring ball-handling and depth to the Nets.
In order to make room for Dragic, Brooklyn will waive guard Jevon Carter. The 4-year guard played in 36 games for the Nets averaging 3.6 points and 1.5 rebounds while shooting 34% from deep and he provided some toughness, but with the addition of Dragic, there is not much need for Carter at the moment.
The Nets are waiving guard Jevon Carter to clear a roster spot for Goran Dragic, sources tell ESPN. Dragic’s agent Bill Duffy tells ESPN that Dragic’s deal will be for the rest of the season.

Carter will likely be picked up by somebody in the buyout market, but for Brooklyn, the addition of Dragic adds a proven guard who can bring that experience and swagger to Brooklyn as they continue their chase for a title.
