Several former Brooklyn Nets still not signed

William Hauser-USA TODAY Sports

With Andrea Bargnani signing in Spain Wednesday, more than half of last year's Nets are re-signed, have jobs in places from Florida to China. But that means that less than half are still unsigned.

Here's an update where they are ... and who's still out there.

-- Andrea Bargnani, waived in February, return to Europe, signed a two-year deal with Saski Baskonia of Spain’s ACB,  the second-best professional basketball league in the world. No financial details were released but despite his claims he had NBA offers, it appears Bargnani's career on this side of the Atlantic is done.

--Donald Sloan, not re-signed, will play in China with Guangdong Southern Tigers, where he will team up with former Net Yi Jianlian.  Sloan will be paid $2.7 million, more than twice what he got from the Nets.

--Sergey Karasev, not re-signed, now with Zenit St. Petersburg, where his father coaches.

--Jarrett Jack, waived and bought out, will play for the Atlanta Hawks,signing a one-year deal at the vets minimum, about one-fifth of his salary in Brooklyn. Jack, who suffered severe injuries to his knee in January, is still rehabbing and may not be ready for opening night in Atlanta.

--Willie Reed, not re-signed, will play for the Heat, signing a two-year, $2.1 million deal, also at the vets minimum . The second year is a player option.

--Wayne Ellington, opted out of player option. signed a $12 million, two-year contract with the Heat, with the second year a team option.

That leaves Thomas Robinson, Shane Larkin, Markel Brown and Henry Sims.  Sims played on the Nets Summer League team and could get a camp invite.
