Spears: Nets sign Donte Greene

Update: Alex Raskin reports that Donte Greene’s contract isn’t guaranteed, just an invite to training camp, per source.

Donte GreeneDonte Greene was drafted by the Kings in 2008 and has spent the last four seasons there, averaging 6.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 16.8 minutes a game. Almost a third of his shots are three-pointers, but he’s only made them at a .304 clip, including a career-low .238 last season. Greene is listed at 6’11 and 226 pounds (per Basketball-Reference), but has never rebounded above the league average percentage of 10%.

Though not reported, the deal is for the league minimum, as the Nets can’t afford anything else.

What the Nets are getting, though, is a player unlike any in the NBA: a player with psychic abilities. Watch him accidentally tip his psychic hand at :13, as he celebrates Tyreke Evans’ buzzer-beating, no-way-it-goes-in half-court shot well before it swishes:

Any team could use a medium, and to get one at the veteran’s minimum is a bargain. Good on you, Billy King. Welcome Greene to the Brooklyn Nets at his twitter account, @dontegreeneCOS:
