Former Nets draftee and forward Damion James will join the team's summer league roster for his third stint with the team, NetsDaily reports. James was drafted by the team 24th overall in 2010 (they moved up three spots to acquire him), playing 32 games before getting waived after two seasons. The Nets then brought him back on a ten-day contract, which wasn't renewed.

Also joining James on the summer league roster is David Lighty, former Ohio State guard and recent Finals MVP... in a French league. Lighty played four years at Ohio State, and left the country to play basketball in Europe after going undrafted in 2011.

Tyshawn Taylor, Tornike Shengelia, and Mason Plumlee will also join the team.

David Lighty, Damion James highlight Summer League roster

 

Damion James has not been extended a second ten-day contract by the Brooklyn Nets and will return to the D-League Bakersfield Jam, per a NetsDaily D-League source.

James barely saw the floor in his time with Brooklyn, playing less than 30 seconds over two games, most notably the final six seconds against the New York Knicks Monday night, when he contested J.R. Smith's final desperation heave that could have tied the game as time expired.

With James heading back to the D-League, the Nets again have one open roster spot.
