Nets Re-Sign Gerald Green

The Nets have officially re-signed Gerald Green to a second 10-day contract, tweets Colin Stephenson of the Star-Ledger.

Fresh off an MVP performance in the D-League's All-Star Game, Green signed with the Nets last Monday. In his brief stint with New Jersey, the 26-year-old has averaged 18.6 minutes per contest, with double-digit scoring in his first two games with the team.

Given all the injury problems New Jersey has faced over the course of the season, Green should continue to provide valuable depth and minutes in place of sidelined players like Damion James, Shawne Williams, and Keith Bogans. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Nets sign the former first-round pick for the rest of the season when his second 10-day contract expires.

GM Billy King first told Andy Vazquez of the Bergen Record on Tuesday that the Nets would re-sign Green (Twitter link).
