Nets Reach Agreement with Johan Petro

The Nets have reportedly reached an agreement with back-up center Johan Petro on a three-year contract worth $10 million. Petro is a five-year veteran, but is just 24 years old. He played in just 36 games for the Nuggets last season, averaging 3.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 12.0 minutes per game. The athletic seven-footer averaged 4.8 points and 5.6 rebounds in 16 games as a starter late last season when Kenyon Martin went down.

With the signings of Petro, Travis Outlaw and Anthony Morrow, the Nets are roughly $18 million under the salary cap and still about $3 million short of the league-mandated minimum payroll of $43.5 million.

Petro had his career best game against the Nets in January 2008, scoring 22 points on 10 of 15 shooting, grabbing nine rebounds and blocking three shots, in a Nets double digit victory over the Sonics.
