ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Shumpert would be joining Brooklyn on Wednesday afternoon.

Shumpert played for Sacramento and Houston in 2018-2019. He averaged 8.9 points in 42 games with the Kings. He played a much smaller role with the Rockets in only 20 games with the Rockets, averaging 4.6 points.
He is, perhaps, most famous for his role on the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers. During that season he came off the bench in all but one game. Playing in 54 total games, he had only 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
The former All-Rookie selection will play a role on the team until Wilson Chandler returns from suspension. He is serving the suspension for PED violations.
The 4-6 Nets continue their season on Thursday against the Nuggets in Denver.
