Isaïa Cordinier has just had big news from the Nets, who held their rights in the NBA. And spoiler: it’s not what he hoped for …
Drafted in 2016 by Atlanta, Isaïa Cordinier saw his rights transferred to Brooklyn in 2018, even if he did not play a single minute in the NBA. Instead, the 24-year-old Frenchman continued his journey in France, first in Antibes and then in Nanterre, where he revealed himself to the point of being selected in Vincent Collet’s pre-list for the Olympic Games.
But while many observers expected Cordinier to have his chance with the Nets this season, the Habs paid the price of the nuclear arms race of his franchise to build a super-roster for the title. NBA. It is Adrian Wojnarowski who brought the bad news this Sunday evening:
Brooklyn declined to submit a tender offer to French G Isaïa Cordinier — 44th pick in 2016 Draft — and allowed him to become a free agent, sources tell ESPN. With established vet additions leaving no opportunity to make roster, Nets let All-EuroCup guard free to sign elsewhere.

Brookyln has declined the opportunity to submit an offer to French defender Isaïa Cordinier, the 44th pick in the 2016 draft, and allows him to become a free agent, sources told ESPN. With the addition of established veterans who no longer leave opportunities to join the roster for the Frenchman, the Nets leave him free to sign elsewhere.
Author of 16 points on average in Betclic Elite last year at 45% at 3 points, Cordinier therefore sees the Brooklyn parenthesis close. What next? No one knows it right now, but those who don’t know can find out below:
Collateral victim of an armored roster, Isaïa Cordinier was ousted from the Nets. Bad for good, let’s hope for this talented young Frenchman!
