The Brooklyn Nets have officially signed Mason Plumlee to a rookie contract, the team announced today. Mike Mazzeo of ESPN tweets out that the contract is worth $6.5 million:

But at the 22nd pick, the maximum Plumlee can make over a four-year contract is approximately $6.4 million, per the 2013-14 rookie salary scale + the customary bonuses (teams are permitted to sign rookies to up to 120% of the rookie scale with an added bonus in the fourth year, and it’s standard practice to do so).
Either way, pennies to Prokhorov. The Nets welcomed Plumlee to their roster today in the first day of Summer League practice. Here’s a tweet from Billy King:
