With the Brooklyn Nets transferring Reggie Perry to their G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, on Thursday, Friday could mark the Nets debut of Norvel Pelle. However, don’t expect Pelle to play much if he does at all — Steve Nash indicated Brooklyn is still working to get the big man in shape during his Zoom call with reporters on Thursday.

Like Pelle, Iman Shumpert will be available to suit up for the Nets again. Shumpert has not played in an NBA game since December 11, 2019 — shortly after which he was waived by the Nets.

Pelle’s last appearance in an NBA game came in the first round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs in the Disney bubble. He logged just over six minutes of action for the Philadelphia 76ers in their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics.

The Nets host the Toronto Raptors on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
