James Webb III, Telekom Baskets Bonn

Departed Brooklyn: Unrestricted free agent, July 1

The Brooklyn Nets didn’t extend a qualifying offer to James Webb III when his two-way contract expired at the start of the new league year last July and he ended up signing on Aug. 23 with Telekom Baskets Bonn in Germany.

Per RealGM, Webb has played in 35 games, starting 29, for Bonn across the German Basketball Bundesliga, Europe’s Basketball Champions League and the German Cup.

He’s averaged 7.0 points, and 4.7 rebounds in 21.5 minutes per game while shooting 42.6 percent overall and hitting 31.3 percent on 3.7 attempts per game from 3-point range.

The Nets signed Webb from the Delaware 87ers in the NBA G League to a two-way contract on Jan. 15, 2018. He made 10 appearances with Brooklyn, averaging 1.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 12.0 minutes per game, shooting 25.0 percent overall and going 4-for-19 from deep.

Rashad Vaughn, Delaware Blue Coats

Departed Brooklyn: Traded to New Orleans Pelicans, Feb. 8, 2018

Rashad Vaughn’s stint with the Brooklyn Nets is officially the shortest in the franchise’s NBA history, as he appeared in just one game before being traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Dante Cunningham on Feb. 8, 2018.

Vaughn was waived by the Pelicans on Feb. 10, 2018, and caught on with the Orlando Magic for two 10-day contracts beginning on Feb. 20, 2018. The Magic terminated the second deal on March 7, 2018.

He signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Dallas Mavericks on Oct. 8, but was waived just three days later. Vaughn was allocated to the Texas Legends, Dallas’ NBA G League affiliate, and was traded to the Delaware Blue Coats on Dec. 31.

Vaughn has appeared in 36 games combined with Texas and Delaware, averaging 15.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 26.2 minutes per game, while shooting 41.3 percent overall and 39.6 percent on 6.2 attempts per game from 3-point range.

Brooklyn had acquired Vaughn along with a 2018 second-round pick from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Tyler Zeller on Feb. 5, 2018.

Vaughn played four minutes — the shortest “career” in the Nets’ NBA history — in his lone appearance for the Nets, collecting one foul and no other stats.

Jacob Wiley, Adelaide 36ers

Departed Brooklyn: Two-way contract ended, Jan. 15, 2018

The Brooklyn Nets led Jacob Wiley go, ending his two-way contract on Jan. 15, 2018. He finished last season with MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg in Germany before signing for this season with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia’s National Basketball League on Aug. 1.

Per Real GM, Wiley is averaging 12.3 points and 5.0 rebounds in 22.6 minutes per game for Adelaide, shooting 56.5 percent overall and 33.3 percent on 1.1 attempts per game from 3-point range.

The Nets signed Wiley to a two-day deal on Aug. 14, 2017, after he had gone undrafted out of Eastern Washington.

Wiley played in five games with Brooklyn, averaging 0.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 6.6 minutes per game, shooting 1-for-4 overall and 1-for-2 from deep.

Sean Kilpatrick, Panathinaikos

Departed Brooklyn: Waived, Dec. 7, 2017

The Brooklyn Nets waived Sean Kilpatrick on Dec. 7, 2017, and he finished last season bouncing from the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls.

Waived by Chicago on July 12, remained unsigned until he agreed to terms with Panathinaikos in Greece on Jan. 8.

Kilpatrick hit the ground running with his new club. In nine games in Greece’s HEBA A1 league and Greek Cup, as well as Euroleague play, Kilpatrick has started eight times and is averaging 10.6 points and 1.6 steals in 23.0 minutes per game, shooting 43.4 percent overall and 31.6 percent on 4.2 3-point attempts per game.

The Nets brought in Kilpatrick on a 10-day contract on Feb. 28, 2016, and wound up signing him to a prorated three-year deal on March 19, 2016.

In one full season and parts of two others in Brooklyn, he averaged 12.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game across 109 games, including 24 starts. He shot 41.5 percent overall and 33.7 percent on 4.1 3-point tries a game.

Archie Goodwin, Maine Red Claws

Departed Brooklyn: Waived, July 28, 2017

Archie Goodwin has bounced around a great deal since being waived by the Brooklyn Nets on July 28, 2017.

He got a training camp look from the Portland Trail Blazers in the fall of 2017 before being waived and eventually went back to the Greensboro Swarm in the NBA G League in December of that year.

Traded to the Northern Arizona Suns in January 2018, Goodwin was traded to the Maine Red Claws on Oct. 19 before leaving the G League to sign with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls in China on Dec. 12.

His stay in China wasn’t a long one; eight days later left the Golden Bulls, returning to the Red Claws on Jan. 3.

In 15 games this season with Maine, including two starts, Goodwin is averaging 17.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.6 steals in 28.1 minutes per game, shooting 47.6 percent overall and 26.1 percent on 3.1 3-point attempts a game.

Goodwin joined the Nets on a 10-day contract on March 15, 2017, and signed a second, but that deal was terminated on April 2, 2017. Two days later, however, Brooklyn signed Goodwin to a prorated, non-guaranteed two year deal.

In 12 games with the Nets, he averaged 7.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game, shooting 55.7 percent overall and going 4-for-13 from deep.
