Sources — Brooklyn Nets expected to bring back Iman Shumpert and Andre Roberson, add Tyler Cook

The Brooklyn Nets are waiving three players — Noah Vonleh, Iman Shumpert and Andre Roberson — ahead of the deadline to guarantee deals for the season, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Brooklyn then plans to re-sign guards Shumpert and Roberson to 10-day contracts, as well as add forward Tyler Cook on a 10-day deal, sources told ESPN.

Wednesday is the league’s deadline to guarantee nonguaranteed contracts for the rest of the season.

Vonleh, Shumpert and Roberson would clear waivers on Friday at 5 p.m. ET. If they are claimed during the waiver process, their contracts would become guaranteed.

The moves give the Nets roster flexibility to take on players in trades or the buyout/free agent market.

Vonleh had a cap hit of $263,995, Shumpert $447,155 and Roberson $163,818.

Cook has averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds and 4.6 assists in the G-League Bubble for Iowa in seven games.

The Nets can continue to use 10-day contracts up until the March 25 trade deadline to retain roster flexibility.

Information from ESPN’s Bobby Marks was used in this report.
