After 13 games in Brooklyn, Iman Shumpert’s stint with the Nets is over.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Brooklyn’s decision to release Shumpert, which the team later confirmed.
The move to part ways with Shumpert is also due to the fact Wilson Chandler’s 25-game suspension for violating the NBA’s Anti-Drug Program is set to end soon.
Shumpert averaged 4.2 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game with the Nets in a reserve role. Star guard Kyrie Irving has missed Brooklyn’s last 13 games with a right shoulder injury, while guard Caris LeVert has been out since mid-November following thumb surgery.
Shump went on IG to say his goodbyes.
