The Nets made one move prior to Thursday afternoon's NBA trade deadline, acquiring Greg Monroe and a 2021 second-round pick from the Raptors, according to multiple reports.
But Monroe apparently won't be a Net for long. According to The Athletic, Monroe will waived by Brooklyn, which will reportedly send Toronto cash considerations. Monroe signed a one-year deal with the Raptors last summer worth more than $2.1 million.
The Brooklyn Nets eventually plan to waive Greg Monroe, a league source told @TheAthleticNBA. The Nets will get Toronto's 2021 second-round pick in the deal, @TheAthleticNYC has learned. https://t.co/95VdMv1m7h- Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) February 7, 2019
The move frees up a roster spot for the Raptors, who reportedly acquired Marc Gasol from Memphis earlier Thursday, while the Nets get a draft pick for helping out Toronto.
Meanwhile, Caris LeVert is set to return to Brooklyn's lineup Friday against the Bulls, nearly three months after a gruesome-looking foot injury which many initially believed would be season-ending. LeVert averaged 18.4 points per game in his first 14 appearances.
