Default Nets sign Gerald Green

The Nets will finally take their chance on Green. Multiple sources, including Green's agent, are reporting New Jersey will sign Green Monday, two days after a staggering display of athleticism won him the MVP award at the D-League All-Star Game. The 6'8" small forward, now 26 has played this season with the L.A. Defenders, having previously played for the Celtics, Timberwolves, Rockets, Mavericks and Lakers, as well as teams in Russia, China and the D-League.

Although a great athlete (and winner of the 2007 NBA Slam Dunk Contest), Green has often had problems with his coaches ... and channeling his athletic talents into basketball skills.

Not sure what to think of this signing, hopefully playing with a great passer like D-Will can elevate his game.
