Brooklyn Nets v Milwaukee Bucks

The Brooklyn Nets are trading center DeAndre Jordan and four second-round picks to the Detroit Pistons for center Jahlil Okafor and power forward Sekou Doumbouya. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the deal, which includes nearly $6 million headed to the Pistons as well.

Wojnarowski also reports that the Pistons will buy out the two years remaining on Jordan’s deal. He’s scheduled to make $9.9 million this season and $9.8 the season after. Okafor will make $2.1 million this season. Doumboya is still on his rookie contract and is slated to make $3.6 million. The exchange will reportedly save Brooklyn $47 million in salary and tax.

Jordan appeared in 57 games for the Nets last year, starting 43. He scored 7.5 points on 76.3% shooting, adding 7.5 rebounds in 21,9 minutes per game.

Doumbouya, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, played in 56 games for the Pistons, starting 11. He scored 5.1 points on 37.9% shooting with 2.6 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game. Okafor played in 27 games, scoring 5.4 with 2.4 rebounds in 12.9 minutes.

Wojnarowski also reports that the Nets intend to waive forward Alize Johnson to make room on their roster.
