The Brooklyn Nets are signing center Moses Brown to a 10-day contract, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. This attempt by the Nets to find a competent backup center to starting center and DPOY candidate Nic Claxton comes after not signing center Nerlens Noel to a second 10-day contract.
Brown was most recently waived by the New York Knicks on Mar. 12 after signing a two-way contract with them on Mar. 8. Before that, Brown was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on Feb. 17. The fourth-year player out of UCLA played 34 games for the Clippers this season and averaged 4.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while shooting 63.5% from the field.
The 7’2″ 245 LB Brown is known for his ability to finish at the rim and strong rebounding chops. He isn’t much of a defender, but he is a big body that could gives Brooklyn some semblance of rebounding off the bench. It appears that Brooklyn is looking for options outside of incumbent center Day’Ron Sharpe to fill the bench big role.
