Nets Set To Call Up Larry Owens, Send Down Dennis Horner

Marc Stein reports that the Nets will sign small forward Larry Owens of the Tulsa 66ers to a non-guaranteed contract Wednesday. To make room for Owens, they are expected to waive Dennis Horner from their current roster and return him to the Springfield Armor

Owens, 6'7" and 28 years old, played in 12 games for the Spurs and Wizards last season, hitting six of his 13 3-point attempts. He was cut by the Wizards in training camp this season. Owens was averaging 13.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in 10 games at Tulsa. He was a D-League All-Star and Second-Team All-D-League last season. He's also played overseas in Turkey, Belgium and France.

A Eurobasket profile of him describes Owens this way: "A forward with great leaping ability and quickness, who gives his best at the defensive side and in fast breaks. Needs to improve his technical skills and outside shooting, even a better FT accuracy would help..." Since that was written, Owens has improved his free throw shooting, hitting 94.4% this season, up from 44.4% in the NBA last season.
