Nets Sign Sundiata Gaines to 10-Day; Backed Up D-Will Last Year in Utah

With Jordan Farmar out 7-10 days, the Nets have signed Sundiata Gaines, a 6'1" point guard who backed up Deron Williams last year, to a 10-day deal.  Gaines, 24, played this year for both the Raptors and Timberwolves. He put up 5.8 ppg in Toronto and 2.6 in Minny. He's a Queens native.

Gaines became famous on January 14, 2010, when in just his fifth NBA game, and after just one practice with the Jazz, he hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Jazz a dramatic 97-96 win over the Cavaliers It was the first 3-pointer of his NBA career.

Farmar could be back by Saturday, Avery Johnson said, meaning he will travel with the team to London Tuesday. Quinton Ross, who hurt his back in warm-ups Saturday, will not travel.
