Fresh on the heels of the news that Jordan Farmar will likely miss the trip to London, the Nets reported today that they have officially signed journeyman Sundiata Gaines to a ten-day contract. Gaines has played on three teams in the last two years, including as a backup for Deron Williams on the Utah Jazz for 32 games. He was very effective in his short stint, averaging 17.3 points per game and 6.5 assists per 36 minutes, but failed to catch on and had unimpressive tenures in Minnesota and Toronto this year. He is expected to be active tonight.
Oh, he also did this in NBA debut:
That’s pretty cool.
I don’t think he’ll be around for the season – when Farmar comes back, that would be four point guards for the Nets. But he definitely provides some needed depth, as Farmar has dealt with injuries earlier this season, too.
