The Nets have officially signed Dennis Horner to a 10-day contract, the team announced today (Twitter link). Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside first reported that the Nets were expected to add Horner on a 10-day deal.
Horner, who will take Jerry Smith's spot on the roster after Smith's 10-day contract expired, spent time with the Nets earlier this season. Horner saw very limited action with the club, however, playing just 16 minutes over the course of five games. Since he was waived by the Nets, the 24-year-old has been playing for the D-League's Springfield Armor, averaging 17.0 PPG and 8.5 RPG in 25 contests.
Horner will add frontcourt depth to a Nets squad that saw Shelden Williams and Jordan Williams suffer injuries earlier this week. As our 10-day tracker shows, Horner is the fourth player to earn a 10-day deal from the Nets this year. Of the four, only Gerald Green has turned the brief audition into a rest-of-season contract.
