Nets sign Damion James
By Mike Mazzeo
The Brooklyn Nets have signed forward Damion James to a 10-day contract, the team announced Sunday.
James, who played 25 games for the Nets in 2010-11 and seven in 2011-12, averaged 4.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 17.9 minutes at the NBA level.
He had been playing for Bakersfield of the NBDL, where he averaged 15.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 17 games.
James is the Nets' first D-League call-up of the season. He had been plagued by injuries during his tenure with the Nets, missing 107 games due to injuries to his right foot.
The Nets are currently decimated by injuries heading into Sunday night's game against the Indiana Pacers. Gerald Wallace (bruised ribs) is out. Deron Williiams (right thigh contusion) is questionable. Kris Humphries (sore left ankle) is a game-time decision. Mirza Teletovic (illness) and Jerry Stackhouse (sore hamstring) are probable.
