The Nets made two roster moves Thursday, waiving David Nwaba, out with a season-ending Achilles injury and signing Justin Anderson, a 6’6” swingman, out the G League, to a 10-day contract. Teams can officially sign 10-days on Sunday.

Shams Charania broke both stories...

Nwaba will be paid for the rest of the season. By waiving Nwaba, the Nets also lose their rights to a team option for Nwaba next July.

Anderson, 26, played college basketball for Virginia before being selected with the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft by the Mavericks. After one and a half seasons with the Mavericks, Anderson was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in February 2017. In July 2018, he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks where he played last season.

This year, Anderson played for the Raptors 905 in the G League and was dominant. He averaged 21.2 points and 6.8 rebounds while shooting 48.4 percentage overall and 34.6 percent from three, attempting 8.2 per game.

Here’s some highlights from last month...

The move, as John Hollinger points out, the moves permit Sean Marks more flexibility.

indeed, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has become a member of the Nets rotation and a Kenny Atkinson favorite. He’s expected to start Thursday vs. Dallas.

Bobby Marks offered a quick summary of the moves...

Expect other moves this weekend, including Caris LeVert return to active status.
