Jaylen Hands Rumors
The Nets received Clippers guard Landry Shamet, Pistons guard Bruce Brown and the draft rights to Reggie Perry (Clippers 57th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft). The Pistons acquired the draft rights to Saddiq Bey (Nets 19th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft), Clippers guard Rodney McGruder, Nets forward Dzanan Musa, a second-round draft pick (Toronto 2021), and the draft rights to Jaylen Hands.
When Budden said that he’d hoped Durant would be in New York for the podcast, the Nets star replied that he was in California since “the Nets (are) out here working out, so I had to stay. A few of us, four or five of us, out here.” Durant, Irving and some other Nets – of both the Brooklyn and Long Island variety, like Spencer Dinwiddie, Devin Cannady and Jaylen Hands – have been working out in Los Angeles. Director of player development Adam Harrington, Durant’s longtime shooting coach, was with them, with Blake Griffin and Allonzo Trier joining in training and playing full-court.
Second-round pick Jaylen Hands is playing well lately for G-League Long Island, but he isn’t Brooklyn-bound anytime soon. As an NBA rights player, the Nets would have to cut somebody (David Nwaba is out for the season), and give Hands a 10-day deal. With Caris LeVert having returned to practice, though ruled out against Minnesota, and Pinson looking better Saturday, they’ll stand pat.
