In a series of moves in the hour after their loss to the 76ers, the Nets released Justin Anderson, signed Timothe Luwawu- Cabarrot to a 10-day deal. then filled TLC’s two-way with shooting guard Jeremiah Martin of the Sioux Falls Skyforce

Mike Scotto started things off by reporting that Justin Anderson, the swingman signed to a 10-day earlier in the month, has been released.

He and Adrian Wojnarowski then reported that the Nets were filling the 10-day spot with Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot who had been on a two-way deal. The Nets subsequently confirmed the move. It permits the Nets to keep him another 20 days without making a commitment to him while still affording them some roster flexibility. Luwawu-Cabarrot’s 45-day limit as a two-way was expiring this week.

Three days ago, Keith Smith of RealGM said he had hearing that the Nets wanted flexibility and that they would give TLC the 10-day,

Finally, Alex Schiffer and Shams Charania reported the Nets added Jeremiah Martin of the Sioux Falls Skyforce, which the Nets also confirmed. Martin is a 23-year-old 6’2” shooting guard who averaged 18.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.5 steals in 29.4 minutes per contest. Martin who was undrafted in June, was in the Heat training camp this summer. Sioux Falls is the Heat’s G League affiliate.

Here’s highlight video of his best game with Sioux Falls, a 31-point effort in November...

So after all that, here’s where things stand. The Nets now have 17 players: 14 roster players; a 10-day, Luwawu-Cabarrot; and two two-ways, Martin and 5’11” point guard Chris Chiozza who was signed last week.

The most significant move, of course, is keeping Luwawu-Cabarrot on the roster. Under the CBA, TLC can be extended another 10 days after the first 10-way expires. That means the Nets can keep the wingman for 20 days, which would take things right up to the trade deadline, February 6.

So, if they needed a roster spot for an unbalanced trade, they could let TLC go and he would return to Long Island (unless another team picked him up). And if they don’t make a deal, they can still sign him to a standard NBA contract at the deadline.
