Creek, Adel waived from respective NBA teams

It looks like Mitch Creek and Deng Adel will be making their way to the G League this season.

As announced in a press release (source), the Brooklyn Nets waived Mitch Creek, and signed forward Drew Gordon, who had previously played at BC Zenit Saint Petersburg, Russia.

This is not a surprising development, given Creek was already out of the running for the Nets' two-way contracts.

Creek, who was on an Exhibit 10 contract, had made an impression with his aggressive, energetic plays during the recent Summer League with the Dallas Mavericks, and looked like a potential candidate for the Brooklyn Nets' two-way contracts. The Nets however, chose to go with Theo Pinson and Alan Williams as their designated two-way players.

Brooklyn's G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets will likely be Creek's next destination, barring a late roster pickup from another NBA team.

Fellow Australian Deng Adel, who was on a training camp invite with the Toronto Raptors, has also been waived (source) along with other camp invitees. Canadian big man Chris Boucher was signed to a 2-way deal. Blake Murphy of The Athletic Toronto however, believes that there is a chance Adel might get signed to the G League.

Patience will once again be the theme for Adel. Following his recent stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors, the swingman will likely make his way to the Raptors' G League affiliate, the Raptors 905, unless another NBA team picks him up.

Deng had suited up in preseason for the Raptors, playing a combined 24 minutes over 2 games. He had made an excellent impact against Melbourne United, scoring 13 points in 16 minutes, making all 5 of his field goals, along with 2/3 free throws (source).
