The Brooklyn Nets will decline the option on the contract of swingman K.J. McDaniels, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
McDaniels will become a free agent, eligible to sign with any team in July.
The Nets are believed to be conserving as much cap space as possible for free agency moves, including possible offer sheets to restricted free agents, just as they did last season. The Nets tendered offer sheets to Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe in July and Donatas Motiejunas in December. All of which were matched.
McDaniels, 24, has also spent time with the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers, and carries career averages of 5.3 points and 2.2 rebounds in 148 games over four seasons.
As NetsDaily also noted: “The Nets will soon have to decide their other five team options: on Sean Kilpatrick, Quincy Acy, Archie Goodwin, Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris. All five, unlike McDaniels, have minimum contracts.”
