As of Saturday, Tyler Cook’s 10-day deal had expired and by Sunday, those of Andre Roberson and Iman Shumpert will likely expire as well. It’s not likely any of them will be immediately extended to a second 10-day deal, as permitted under league rules. A league source said there’s no urgency in extending any of the three, if indeed that’s what the Nets want, since play doesn’t resume until Thursday. That’s when the Nets take on the Celtics at Barclays Center.

Michael Scotto: Andre Roberson’s deal with the Brooklyn Nets is a one-year, non-guaranteed deal, a league source told @hoopshype . He played six seasons with the OKC Thunder, was a teammate of Kevin Durant, and made an NBA All-Defensive Team.
Before signing Iman Shumpert, the Brooklyn Nets considered a deal with veteran forward Andre Roberson, sources said. The Nets looked into Roberson as a wing signing who can provide defense and experience. Roberson showed to the Nets that he is healthy and moving well. In seven NBA seasons, Roberson has averaged. 4.5 points and four rebounds per game, making the All-Defensive second team in 2017.

Brandon Rahbar: Presti on Andre Roberson returning to the Thunder: He says the roster is pretty full right now, but he still has to more work to do. (I don't think Dre is coming back. Here's hoping he lands somewhere and continues his comeback.)

David Aldridge: OKC considered options, but chose to be loyal to Roberson (@Adrian Wojnarowski first), who’ll return to his elite defensive role w/@Paul George in town.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Roberson preferred the three year deal over four, sources said. He's developed into an excellent role player with Thunder.
Royce Young: One ripple effect from the George acquisition I'm gathering: The Thunder are much more likely to retain Andre Roberson now.
Fred Katz: Possible this makes re-signing Roberson even more likely. OKC opened up money & Thunder always preferred his fit as a SG next to a big SF
Andre Roberson last week expressed his interest in returning to Oklahoma City, and on Monday, Thunder general manager Sam Presti said he's “excited about the fact that (Roberson) is a part of the team.”
“Every indication we've had from Dre and from his people, his agent, is that he loves playing here,” Presti said. “And I've always said this to everybody before: When the player shows an interest in being here, it really exponentially helps your opportunity to get a contract done, if you would like to.”
The Thunder have only one clear unknown about the existing roster: Roberson, a restricted free agent this summer. After the team inked extensions with Adams and Oladipo last October, Roberson and the Thunder couldn't find common ground. Roberson has his limitations, but he is one of the elite defenders in the league, and with some development and better understanding of his role as the season went along -- the Thunder preached less shooting, more cutting and driving -- the Thunder are intent on keeping him.
KC Johnson: Bulls pushed hard for Andre Roberson, source said. But Thunder wants to re-sign him.
