The Nets are set to sign D-Leaguer Andre Emmett within the next few days, Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside reports. Emmett, a second-round pick by the Sonics in 2004, is averaging 23.7 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 3.4 APG for the Reno Bighorns. The 29-year-old's only NBA experience is eight games with the Grizzlies in 2004/05.
The Nets currently have the maximum 15 players on their roster, so someone would have to be released in order for Emmett to join the team. The move would run counter to a report three days ago that the Nets were not looking to sign anyone else despite a rash of injuries, including season-ending surgery for recent signee Keith Bogans. Shelden Williams, Sundiata Gaines and Bogans are all minimum-salary players whose contracts are up at the end of the year, making them the most likely candidates to go.
