Nets sign veteran F Green to contract

The Brooklyn Nets signed free-agent forward Jeff Green to a contract, the team announced Monday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Nets, however ESPN reported that Green was expected to sign a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum.

The move reunites Green with former NBA MVP Kevin Durant. The two played with the then-Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 before the Oklahoma City Thunder traded Green to the Boston Celtics during the 2010-11 season.

Green, 34, averaged 9.4 points and 2.8 rebounds in 48 games (two starts) last season with the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz.

He has averaged 13.0 points and 4.4 rebounds over 908 career games (545 starts) with Seattle/Oklahoma City, Boston, Memphis, Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando, Cleveland, Washington, Houston and Utah.
