Horner played in three games in the D-League with Springfield. The 6-foot-9 former NC State star averaged 15 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Springfield had four players attend NBA training camps this past week. Center Jeff Foote was invited to Portland, while guards JamesOn Curry and Jerry Smith joined Horner in New Jersey. Foote, Curry, and Smith are all back with the Armor (6-4).

Horner is the second Armor player in history to be called up to the NBA, and the first under the hybrid Nets-Armor affiliation.
