Egidijus Mockevicius, the NCAA's leading rebounder last season, has signed a one year, partially guaranteed contract with the Nets, according to RealGM.  Eric Pincus reports the guarantee is $100,000, the same as Yogi Ferrell received.

Mockevicius, 23, played four years at Evansville, averaging 15.7 points, 14 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.  He led the NCAA Division I in rebounding.  In the NBA summer league, the 6'10" Mockevicius averaged 5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game for the Nets.

Although there's no detail yet on how much Mockevicius will receive as a guarantee, reports last month said that his agreement with the Nets included a small guarantee.

With the signings of Mockevicius, Yogi Ferrell and Beau Beech this week, the Nets now have 18 players under contract, 15 fully guaranteed.  Ferrell and Mockevicius have $100,000 guarantees; Beech $45.000.
