The Nets turned down Garrett Temple’s option for the upcoming season, making the senior guard a free agent.
The move was long overdue before Brooklyn struck a three-way NBA Draft Night deal for Detroit defensive-minded Bruce Braun or Landed Shooter Laundry Schmidt. This was previously reported by ESPN and confirmed by the post.
With great reverence in the Brooklyn locker room, Nates nicknamed the temple “President.” The 34-year-old was an NBPA vice president, and a constant force for a team that was in constant flow.
Temple had expressed a desire to return to Brooklyn, but the Knights eventually decided not to use their 5 5 million team option.
“It’s a great organization, a very big organization, first class in every respect – that’s exactly what I heard, what I thought when I was signing here. And I really hope to come here next year when we have a full class of our boys so we can have a good push, ”Temple said after losing the first round playoff to Toronto. “It’s going to be interesting. I’m excited for the challenge. ”
Temple scored a career-best 10.3 points last season, including 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. He was also forced to play some point guard. He shot 37.8 percent overall and 32.9 percent deep, but he expects significant interest from several teams. The traps could easily bring the temple back on the bargain, but it seems impossible.
The Cerebral Guard has long been interested in law, the Post reported, adding that he was considering going to law school after retirement. He used the epidemic to start studying his LSATs; But with the coming of this last career year, he is likely to close law school for a while.
