Former Nets guard Isaiah Whitehead is leaving German club Ludwigsburg and presumably returning to NBA free agency, per Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.
Whitehead, 27, is 6-foot-4 and was originally drafted by the Jazz in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft (No. 42 overall). He was traded to the Nets the next day and spent two seasons there, including some time in the G League.
Known for his steady defense, Whitehead is currently tied with Darwin Cook for franchise blocks in a season by a guard. Each has 36, with Whitehead accomplishing the feat in 2017-18 and Cook in 1980-81.
Whitehead carries NBA career averages of 7.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in 89 games with Brooklyn.
He was traded by the Nets to the Nuggets in July 2018 season and promptly waived. He then signed a two-way contract with the Pistons in January 2019 but has yet to play in another NBA game.
