The Brooklyn Nets have signed power forward Henry Ellenson to a two-way contract. Ellenson's first three NBA seasons -- split between the Pistons and Knicks -- have largely been disappointments, and he finished last season with an average of six points and 3.5 rebounds per game in just 19 appearances. A two-way deal will limit how much time Ellenson is able to spend on an NBA roster, which means most of his season will be spent with Brooklyn's G-League affiliate in Long Island. Any value Ellenson may have had if he'd signed an actual NBA contract has evaporated with this move.
Free agent forward DeMarre Carroll has agreed to a two-year deal with the San Antonio Spurs, leaving the Brooklyn Nets after two seasons. Carroll only started eight of his 67 games last year, but he provided the Nets with a solid wing option off the bench, scoring 11.1 points per game and adding 5.2 rebounds per contest. He shot 34.2 percent from three, but hes shown the ability to shoot in the upper 30s at times in his career and the Spurs will be hoping he can be a solid three-and-d wing off their bench for the next two years. Carroll has likely hit the point in his career where his contributions wont have a significant fantasy impact, though he should put up solid numbers over the course of the year. His game-to-game consistency, though, could be an issue depending on how the Spurs rotation shakes out.
Free agent power forward/center Ed Davis has agreed to a two-year contract with the Utah Jazz. Davis was a do-it-all bench piece for the Nets last season, averaging 5.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Hes likely heading for the same role in Utah, but playing behind Rudy Gobert, who should stay on the floor a little more than Brooklyns Jarrett Allen did. Davis will likely see a little run at power forward, but dont expect him to top the 20 minute per game mark, and hell continue to be much more effective and useful as a rebounder than as anything else. Fantasy owners looking for a cheap source of rebounding late in fantasy drafts might have some interest in Davis, but his other numbers are unlikely to be good enough to justify him being in most fantasy lineups.
The Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors have reportedly agreed upon a blockbuster deal that would send All-Star point/shooting guard D'Angelo Russell to the Golden State Warriors, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Russell will sign a four-year, $117 million max contract extension, and then be flipped to Golden State in a deal, which Shams Charania of The Athletic reports, will include Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham. The move comes in the wake of Golden State losing Kevin Durant to Brooklyn in free agency earlier in the day. Russell should figure to slot into the Warriors' starting backcourt alongside Stephen Curry, with the 23-year-old Russell coming off his first All-Star appearance and career high averages of 21.1 points and 7.0 assists per game, along with 36.9 percent shooting from deep in 2018-19.
Brooklyn Nets center Ed Davis (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 versus the Philadelphia 76ers. This is the second game in a row that Davis has been forced to miss due to a right ankle injury. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will see extra playing time with Davis sidelined.
