Brooklyn Nets Sign Donte Greene

by August 24, 2012

Free agent Donte Greene has agreed to a contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Until now, Greene spent his entire four-year NBA career with the Sacramento Kings. In 53 games last year, the rangy small forward averaged 5.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game. More details, via the New York Post: “The 6-foot-11 forward tweeted, ‘HELLO BROOKLYN’ along with a picture of the Nets logo inside the team’s facility in Brooklyn yesterday. That came shortly after Yahoo! Sports reported the Nets had agreed in principle with Greene. A league source said the deal will be non-guaranteed. Greene’s agent, Chris Luchey, told The Post it was premature to say a deal had been signed, but that all signs point to Greene officially joining the Nets in the near future. Greene will be the eighth new player — out of 14 currently on the roster — to join the team since last season ended. When the move is completed, Greene will give the Nets a young, viable small forward to play behind Gerald Wallace. Backup small forward was one of two remaining areas of need on the roster, along with backup center.”
