The Pacers front office was playing as hard as the team on the court Tuesday night, reportedly agreeing to a deal with the Brooklyn Nets to trade Edmond Sumner and a future second round pick for well, we don’t know yet, but it is most likely a $2.3 million trade exception.
The Nets will waive Sumner, who is out for the season with a knee injury, source tells ESPN. https://t.co/ChehEAGqVQ— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) October 6, 2021
The injury riddled Sumner who showed so much progress and promise last season, is out again this year after recent surgery on his left Achilles tendon. According to Woj, the Nets expect to release Sumner after they also dealt Sekou Doumbouya in what appears to be an effort to at least clear some room on the roster.
As for the Pacers, Woj also reported they have signed Brad Wanamaker to a training camp deal. Wanamaker is a journeyman point guard who could fill the Pacers need as a third point guard on the roster, but with a camp deal he will still have to earn it over the next couple of weeks.
