Bargnani Out vs. Knicks
Friday, Feb. 19
In the midst of a disappointing season after signing a two-year, $2.9 million deal with the Nets in the summer, per Spotrac, Bargnani is averaging just 6.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from three-point range.
Although he possesses a player option for next season, Bargnani's days in Brooklyn may be numbered. Prior to Thursday's NBA trade deadline, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Bargnani is part of a group of players who will "almost assuredly" have their contracts bought out.
If Bargnani manages to stick around, his playing time figures to hover below 15 minutes per game, as it has all season long. And with youngsters in need of developmental playing time taking priority with the playoffs firmly out of reach, the 30-year-old doesn't figure to be a primary component of the team's rotation moving forward.
