The Brooklyn Nets continue to make moves. This time, they're adding depth to their frontcourt, as center Nazr Mohammed is reportedly set to sign with the team for the veteran's minimum, according to Hoopsworld.com's Alex Kennedy.
Nazr Mohammed is close to signing with the Brooklyn Nets, according to source. He'll likely sign for the veteran's minimum in next 24 hours.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 18, 2012
The 6-foot-10 journeyman, who will turn 35 this fall, played for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, appearing in 63 regular-season games and averaging 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 11 minutes per game. He did not appear in any 2012 NBA finals games for the Thunder.
According to SB Nation's NetsDaily, Mohammed would become the 14th player listed on the Nets roster. The NBA's roster maximum is 15.
A member of seven different NBA teams during his 14-year NBA career, Mohammed would appear to offer some insurance in the middle behind recently re-signed starter Brook Lopez for Brooklyn coach Avery Johnson as the Nets prepare for training camp.
