The Nets officially signed Ed Davis, the veteran 6’10” power forward, on Monday, giving him the $4.4 million room exception for one year, then re-signed Joe Harris, their shooting guard, on Tuesday to a previously disclosed $16 million contract over two years. They’re (presumably) the next to last moves of their month-long remake of the roster.
Still on the agenda, officially signing Treveon Graham, the 6’5” Charlotte forward. The Nets delayed all three deals until they could manipulate the cap a little and make other moves. The Nets can also sign two two-way contracts between now and the opening of camp on September 25.
Assuming this is it, the Nets will have added seven new players to their roster, keeping eight (including Harris) from last year.
The new players,with contract details are:
—Dzanan Musa, 6’9” swingman from Bosnia, taken in the Draft at No. 29. Already signed to a standard four-year, $7 million rookie deal with first two years guaranteed.
—Rodions Kurucs, 6’9” swingman from Latvia, taken in the Draft at No. 40. Already signed to a four-year, $6.6 million deal with the first three years guaranteed, according to his agent.
—Ed Davis, 6’10” forward center from the Trail Blazers. Already signed to the one-year, $4.4 million room exception.
—Joe Harris, 6’5” shooting guard. Already signed to a two-year, $16 million deal. Not yet signed.
—Kenneth Faried, 6’8” Nuggets power forward who was acquired in a trade for Isaiah Whitehead. He’s on an expiring $13.7 million contract.
—Shabazz Napier, 6’1” point guard from the Trail Blazers. Already signed to a one year, $1.9 million contract with a team option in year two.
—Treveon Graham, a 6’5” forward from the Hornets who’s agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million contract with a team option in year two.
—Jared Dudley, a 6’7” Suns stretch 4 who was acquired in a trade for Darrell Arthur, himself acquired in the Faried for Whitehead deal. He’s on an expiring $9.5 million contract.
The Nets also acquired, in the Jeremy Lin trade with Atlanta the draft right to Isaia Cordinier, 6’5” French point guard who plays for the Antibes Sharks in the French league.
The Nets have reportedly given training camp invites to Theo Pinson, the 6’7” UNC swingman, and Tyler Davis, the 6’10” Texas A&M center. Both played for the Nets team in Summer League.
In signing Davis, the Nets noted that 29-year-old led the NBA in rebounds off the bench last season, grabbing 575. The acquisition of Davis and Faried should go a long way toward curing two of the team’s biggest deficits last season, rebounding and defense up front.
