Last August, Donte Greene accepted an invitation from the Nets to try out for the team in training camp. Days later, he suffered a devastating injury in a pick-up game in a Charlotte gym. The injury was much like the one that ended Keith Bogans season, with damage to both soft tissue and bone. The Nets withdrew the invitation and eventually signed Josh Childress.
Now, with Marc J. Spears tweeting that Greene's going to work out for NBA teams at Eastern Michigan University Sunday, the Nets are not among those interested in signing him for the rest of the season or even offering him a 10-day contract. According to a league source, "the Nets right now are not interested." The Nets have an open roster spot.
Greene has not played since leaving the Kings at the end of the 2011-12 season. If he doesn't get an NBA offer, the 6'11" small forward could wind up in the D-League and seek an invitation to an NBA training camp. Greene has been lobbying for a Nets offer via Twitter.
