The Brooklyn Nets have declined to extend their non-guarantee tender to Xavier Thames, making him a free agent. Thames was the 59th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft out of San Diego State and was traded by the Toronto Raptors to the Nets on draft night. Thames played last season in Spain and in the D-League before joining the Nets for Summer League.
Raptors GM Masai Ujiri couldn’t find anyone he wanted at the back end of the 2014 NBA Draft, so he sold the pick to the Nets for $300,000. Toronto selected the San Diego State senior Xavier Thames for the Nets, however, he didn't make the Nets roster and will play for Baloncesto Sevilla in Spain.
