Nets to wear Green for the duration
By Mike Mazzeo
The Nets have re-signed Gerald Green for the rest of the season on Sunday, the team announced.
Green's second 10-day contract expired Sunday so the Nets had to either sign him for the rest of the season or let him go.
Green has averaged 11.7 points in 11 games since signing his first 10-day deal on Feb. 27. He has scored double figures in his last five games.
The 26-year-old had been in the D-League prior to signing, and he has helped provide stability at the small forward position for New Jersey ever since.
