Brooklyn Nets waive Andrea Bargnani
Sunday February 21st, 2016

The Brooklyn Nets have waived forward Andrea Bargnani, the veteran confirmed Saturday. 

Bargnani, 30, averaged a career-low 6.6 points and 2.1 rebounds in 46 games this season. He has also failed to make a start for the first time in his career.

The former No. 1 pick signed a two-year, veteran minimum contract with the Nets last offseason. 

The move is the first roster shakeup for general manager Sean Marks, who was hired to replace Billy King on Thursday.
