The Nets announced Tuesday afternoon that they have signed guard Derrick Zimmerman and center John Thomas for the final two games of the season. Zimmerman was in training camp with the team and was the D-League Defensive Player of the Year. Thomas has played in 11 games with the Grizzlies and Hawks this season. With Jeff McInnis and Antoine Wright injured, Lawrence Frank needed a couple of more bodies in order to rest his starters. Just two weeks ago, Ed Stefanski praised Zimmerman's defense, but questioned his offense.
