Nets Beat Out Kings To Sign Andrea Bargnani

Jul 12, 2015 11:23 PM

The Brooklyn Nets have signed Andrea Bargnani.

Bargnani was close to a deal with the Sacramento Kings, who were offering more money than the Nets. The Kings, sources say, believed a deal was imminent Sunday, after ESPN reported on Saturday that Sacramento and Bargnani were in advanced negotiations and closing in on a deal.

Bargnani instead accepted the Nets offer of a two-year deal for the veteran's minimum that includes a player option.

The New York Knicks acquired Bargnani during the 2013 offseason from the Toronto Raptors.

Deron Williams Discusses Buyout With Nets, Wants To Play For Mavs

Jul 10, 2015 10:47 AM

Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets are in talks about a potential buyout this offseason that would create an opportunity for him to sign with the Dallas Mavericks.

Williams grew up in the Dallas area.

Williams has two seasons and $43.3 million remaining on his contract with the Nets.

The Nets have been adamant since the end of the season that they do not want to simply release Williams via the stretch provision, even though it would allow them to pay out his remaining salary over the next five seasons and reduce their luxury-tax bill, as long as such a measure is executed before the Aug. 31 deadline.


The Nets have been unable to gain traction in trading Williams.

Williams chose the Nets over the Mavericks in the summer of 2012.

The Utah Jazz have also been mentioned as a landing spot for Williams, but he prefers Dallas to play in his hometown and reunite with Wesley Matthews.

"It's 60 to 70 percent that [Williams] winds up in Dallas," one source said.

Willie Reed Reaches One-Year Deal With Nets

Jul 9, 2015 3:28 PM

Free agent center Willie Reed has reached agreement with the Brooklyn Nets on a one-year contract, league sources told RealGM.

Reed, who has starred on the Miami Heat’s summer league entry in Orlando, will sign a mostly guaranteed deal, sources said.

When reached to confirm, Reed’s agent, Joel Bell, declined comment.

In four summer league games for the Heat, Reed has averaged 13.5 points, 7.8 rebounds, nearly two blocks and 60 percent field-goal shooting. He has emerged as a legitimate NBA rotation prospect, a frontcourt player agile enough to finish inside and recover on defense.

Out of Saint Louis in 2011, Reed has signed NBA contracts with the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies and Nets over the past three years. The 6-foot-10 big man went to training camp with the Nets last October.

Reed split last season with Iowa and Grand Rapids in the NBA D-League, averaging 16.4 points, 12.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game.
