Brooklyn Nets waive Cory Jefferson

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, the Nets waived second year power forward Cory Jefferson on Monday. The Nets would have had to pay Jefferson, 25, $150,000 on Wednesday, part of his partially guaranteed deal signed last summer.

Tim Bontemps broke the news...

Jefferson, a 6'9" power forward, played 50 games for the Nets, starting one.  He averaged 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.

The Nets have in the last two weeks signed Thomas Robinson and Willie Reed and have agreed to a deal with Andrea Bargnani, all power forwards.  When Jefferson clears waivers, the Nets will have 17 players under contract, 13 fully guaranteed.
