Ben Uzoh Signs with Italian Team ...But Without an NBA "Out"

Ben Uzoh has become the fourth Net point guard ...and the sixth Net... from last year's roster to sign overseas, easily the most of any NBA team. The rookie signed with Fabi Shoes Montegranaro of the Italian League. 

Of the 15 players on the Nets roster at season's end, Uzoh, Deron Williams, Mario West, Sasha Vujacic, Jordan Farmar and Sundiata Gaines have now committed to play overseas. All but Vujacic and now Uzoh have NBA "out"s.

Uzoh replaces Edgar Sosa, who broke his leg playing for the Dominican Republic in FIBA Americas earlier this month. Uzoh, who went undrafted in 2010, is a free agent after averaging 3.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 42 games for the Nets.
