Ridiculous Upside's Scott Schroeder reports Monday night that the Nets will sign D-League wing Andre Emmett this week. Emmett is 6-5 and 29 years old. He was drafted in the second round out of Texas Tech by the Sonics in 2004 and has eight games of NBA experience, in early 2005 with the Grizzlies.
This season, Emmett has averaged 23.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.8 steals in 24 games with the Reno Bighorns, shooting 53 percent from the field and 34-for-74 (46 percent) from 3-point range. Over the years, he's also played for two other D-League teams as well as for clubs in Lithuania, Belgium, France, Venezuela, China (twice) and Puerto Rico.
To sign Emmett, the Nets would need to waive either Keith Bogans or Damion James, who are both out for the season. Bogans is the more likely candidate.
