Though he already retired from basketball, the Lakers still had legendary point guard Steve Nash on their active roster. That is no longer the case, as the Lakers have waived the 41 year-old point guard to make room for un-drafted rookie Jabari Brown on the team’s active roster. The Lakers had an official press resale on the transaction involving the move.
The Los Angeles Lakers have waived guard Steve Nash and signed guard Jabari Brown to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak.
The Lakers signed Brown to a couple of ten-day contracts and after his impressive play as of late, the Lakers had to waive someone with Brown being the 16th man. The retired Nash was an easy painless decision.
Brown is averaging 9.1 points, 1.6 assists, and 1.5 rebounds per game in 11 games with the Lakers this season. Brown had a career night on March 30th versus the Lakers in which Brown had 22 points and 3 assists in the Lakers 113-111 win.
