Brooklyn Nets sign Mason Plumlee to rookie deal

Mike Stobe

A half-hour before summer league practice began Wednesday, Mason Plumlee became the Nets first signing of the off-season, inking his rookie contract, which will pay him a little more than $1 million this season. The contract is guaranteed a minimum of two years.

Teams have until the October 31 preceding the player's second regular season to exercise their option for the player's third season. Likewise, they have until the October 31 preceding the player's third regular season to exercise their option for the player's fourth season. Teams customarily add a 20 percent bonus to the NBA rookie scale. The 22nd pick receives a minimum of $1,082,200 plus the bonus.

Plumlee, at 7'0.5", was the "Big Man of the Year" in the NCAA, averaging 17 and 10 for Duke. In the course of his four years in Durham, teams he played on were 124-23 and he was part of the 2010 national championship team, the only Net to have won an NCAA championship.

Although Andray Blatche has agreed to a two year deal and Keith Bogans has agreed to a sign-and-trade deal to be included in the Celtics trade, neither can officially sign until July 10. Plumlee's signature is on a piece of paper (or an iPad)
