Following injuries to Shelden Williams and Jordan Williams in last night's win over the Pacers, the Nets are planning to sign Dennis Horner, reports Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside. According to Schroeder, New Jersey will likely sign Horner to a 10-day contract, making it official before tomorrow's game to take full advantage of the ten days.
Horner, 24, made the Nets' roster to start the season, but only appeared in five games before being waived in January. Since then, the 6'9" forward has been playing for the D-League's Springfield Armor, averaging 17.0 PPG and 8.5 RPG in 25 contests with the team.
The Nets won't need to waive anyone to add Horner, since Jerry Smith's 10-day contract expired earlier this week, opening up a roster spot.
