Dennis Horner

International Rumors: Jordan, Ubiles, Horner

Tracy McGrady's recent signing with China's Qingdao Double Star Eagles is the most notable international transaction of late, but there are still plenty of players with NBA experience coming from and going to teams overseas. Here's the latest on a few of them:

  • In addition to drawing interest from Qingdao, Jerome Jordan has also received interest from the Zhejiang Chouzhou Golden Bulls of the CBA, according to a 361 Sport report (translation via HoopsHype).
  • French team Cholet has announced that Edwin Ubiles is no longer a part of the team and is now a free agent (hat tip to Sportando). Ubiles, a Siena product, appeared in four games last season for the Wizards.
  • Germany's Artland Dragons have signed Dennis Horner, according to the team's official website (hat tip to Sportando). Horner appeared in eight games for the Nets and 25 games for the D-League's Springfield Armor in the 2011/12 season.

Nets Sign Dennis Horner To 10-Day Contract

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.

Nets Expected To Sign Dennis Horner

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.
