Gerald Green's second 10-day contract is set to expire this weekend, but don't expect Green and the Nets to part ways when the deal ends. Green tells Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News that, although the paperwork isn't official yet, he plans to sign with the Nets for the remainder of the season (Twitter link).
Green, who had been playing for the D-League for most of the season, has been very impressive in his stint with the Nets, averaging 11.0 PPG on 51.3% shooting in nine games. In the last week, the 6'8" forward has been especially productive, averaging 21.0 points in just 26.2 minutes per game over his last three contests.
Nets GM Billy King told New York's WFAN this morning that the team is in talks with Green to keep him for not just this season, but for next year as well (hat tip to Andy Vasquez of the Bergen Record).
