Nets say goodbye to Xavier Thames

BY foxsports • September 10, 2015

The Nets acquired Xavier Thames on draft night back in 2014, but the former 59th overall pick didn't play a game for Brooklyn last season. Now, it appears he won't play for Lionel Hollins' team at all.

From Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports:

The former San Diego State point guard entered the draft after four years at the collegiate level, seeing a major spike in his production as a senior. Still, that wasn't enough to make last year's team, a squad that harbored two second-round picks from Thames' draft, Cory Jefferson and Markel Brown.

Teams have to offer a tender to second-round picks this week. If not, they would lose their rights. Thames spent last season both with Sevilla in Spain and in the D-League.

The Nets now have rights to just one international player, Juan Pablo Vaulet, the 19-year-old Argentinian who went 39th in this year's draft.
