Nets could target Jameer Nelson after he clears waivers

Nets could target Jameer Nelson after he clears waivers

The Brooklyn Nets are mired in a nightmare to start their 2017-18 season after announcing that their starting point guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season, having sustained a ruptured patella tendon during Wednesdays season-opener against the Indiana Pacers.

To replace him, the team could look at soon-to-be-free-agent point guard Jameer Nelson, who was waived by the Denver Nuggets ahead of their season-opener against the Utah Jazz, scheduled to clear waivers on Friday.

The 13-year veteran has proved to be a reliable floor general and an incredible mentor for young players, a talent the team is in dire need for.

Lin was the second player to suffer a season-ending injury during the first game of the season, joining Boston Celtics star forward Gordon Hayward at the infirmary.

Moving forward, head coach Kenny Atkinson might look to start or give even more minutes at the shooting guard position to offseason addition Allen Crabbe and second-year combo guard Caris LeVert.
