THURSDAY, 6:43pm: The Nets will entertain Mohammed this weekend and are likely to sign him soon after, tweets David Aldridge of TNT.
WEDNESDAY, 6:46pm: The Nets are close to signing free agent center Nazr Mohammed, a source tells Alex Kennedy of Hoops World (via Twitter). The big man will likely sign for the veteran's minimum in the next 24 hours.
Mohammed, 34, logged just 11.0 minutes per contest in 2011/12, his lowest in a healthy season since 1999/00. For his career, the veteran has averaged 6.6 PPG and 5.2 RPG across his 13-year career. Last night, David Aldridge of TNT suggested that the Nets' next move could be to sign a backup center like Mohammed or Ryan Hollins.
