Report: Nets Likely to Sign Gerald Green for Rest of Season

by March 17, 2012

Green, who has been on fire for a week now, is finishing up his second 10-day contract with the Nets. And it sounds like the next contract Green will earn is of the rest-of-season variety. From the Star-Ledger: “Nets general manager Billy King said in an interview on WFAN that he is talking to Gerald Green’s agent about signing Green — whose second 10-day contract with the team expires after Saturday night’s game — to a contract not only for the rest of this season, but next season as well. ‘This organization, man, has really blessed me,’ Green said. ‘I’m just happy to even be a part of it. Obviously, I have to still talk to my agent, still talk with Billy.… Nothing has been signed yet, but just to hear that from my agent, saying that the team wants me here, it’s just — it’s almost mind-blowing, for all I’ve been through. I’m just very excited, but I’ve still got to keep going, keep fighting, keep fighting to try to be better, to try to help better this team.'”
