The Brooklyn Nets waived veteran forward James Johnson on Thursday.

Johnson, who joined the team as a free agent on Aug. 6, averaged 5.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 62 games (10 starts) this season. He was inactive for the past two games.

Johnson, 35, owns career averages of 13.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 1.3 steals in 747 games (242 starts) with nine NBA franchises.

He entered the league as a first-round pick (16th overall) by the Chicago Bulls in 2009.

This waiver clears the way for the Nets to convert forward Kessler Edwards to a standard NBA contract for the playoffs, sources tell ESPN.

The Nets (42-38) rallied to beat the Knicks last night to remain in the No. 8 spot in Eastern Conference. They are competing for the No. 7 seed to ensure a better position for the Play-in tournament.
