The Nets will not make a qualifying offer to Jerome Jordan before June 30, although he could return, according to league sources. The move is essentially a bookkeeping move to give the Nets more flexibility. Jordan would have become a restricted free agent if the Nets had made the offer.
A league source said the team has no immediate plans to fill its currently open 15th and final roster spot in the wake of Davies being released. Like Morris, Jerome Jordan and rookie Cory Jefferson — both of whom had partial guarantees — became fully guaranteed by remaining on the roster.
It is “unlikely” they waive anyone else, a team source told The Brooklyn Game. The Nets have three more non-guaranteed players on their roster — guard Darius Morris, center Jerome Jordan, and rookie forward Cory Jefferson. Jefferson is currently in the D-League with the Maine Red Claws, and Morris & Jordan provide much-needed depth at the point guard and center positions, where the Nets have dealt with injuries throughout the season.
Nets Daily: Brandon Davis, waived today, had no guarantee. Neither does @Darius Morris $75K guaranteed to @CoryJay34 $100K for @jerome_jordan They stay
Nets Daily: In two weeks, #Nets have to decide whether to keep @Darius Morris @jerome_jordan @CoryJay34 and Brandon Davies. Jan 10 is guarantee day

And he has a confident message for them. “I’m ready to play,” Jordan told ESPNNewYork.com. “It was a tough year with the team [in 2011-12]. There was a lot of pressure.
