Default Nets sign Deshawn Stevenson to 1 year deal.

The Nets announced Friday afternoon that they have signed guard DeShawn Stevenson. The deal is reportedly for one year and the team's $2.5 million "room" exception, putting the team over the salary cap.

"DeShawn is a veteran NBA player who brings a championship pedigree to our roster," Billy King said in the Nets' statement announcing the deal. "He is a tough defender who can stretch the floor, and will bolster our backcourt rotation."

Stevenson is 30 years old and entering his 12th NBA season. Including the playoffs, he started 72 games for the Mavs last year.

The addition puts the Nets' roster at 16. They will need to waive one player (Dennis Horner or Ime Udoka) by Saturday evening.

This guy is one crazy dude but he can defend and hit some three pointers. He started for the Champion Dallas Mavericks.

I like, another good job from Billy.
He provides toughness and defense. Remember we would always have trouble against guys like Melo and Bron? He can at times guard them. Not saying he can shut them down, but he can bring that defense that we have been missing.
