Henry Sims Signed By Nets for Remainder of Season


The Brooklyn Nets have signed Henry Sims through the remainder of the 2015-2016 season, the team announced today. Sims will be with the team for the final five games of the season after playing through two ten-day contracts, the first of which began on March 17.

Unlike Sean Kilpatrick, who signed a multi-year deal with a guarantee for the 2016-17 season, Sims was only signed through the end of the year, without even a partial or non-guaranteed contract for next season, as Earl Clark got last year before the team released him to play overseas.

The Nets are Sims’s fourth NBA team after going undrafted in 2012 following four years at Georgetown. He also played briefly in the Philippines.

Sims has played in nine games with the Nets, averaging 6.0 points and 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 17.2 minutes per game. He has started twice in lieu of Brook Lopez; with Lopez shut down for the year, should continue to share minutes at center with backup Willie Reed.
