Keith Bogans, who the Nets picked up mid season and then suffered a horrific injury not long after, will return to the team next season. Frank Isola of the Daily News reported the news. The swingman brings to 11 the number of players either committed or signed. The team is talking with Kris Humphries and looking for a back-up center.
Bogans had started every game for the Bulls in 2010-11, preseason through the Eastern Conference Finals but then wasn't re-signed by Chicago after the lockout. The Nets picked him up in February but he suffered a complete tear of his deltoid ligament and a fractured ankle in his fifth game. He's known as a defensive specialist who can hit the three. Bogans is 32.
