The Nets have reached an agreement with free-agent swingman Stephen Graham, 28, ona two-year contract with the second year at New Jersey’s option, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, via Twitter.
The 6-foot-6 Graham has played for six teams in his five NBA seasons, and most recently appeared in a career-best 70 games for the Charlotte Bobcats last season. He owns per-game averages of 4.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 10.9 minutes per game. He figures to spend time backing up Travis Outlaw, Terrence Williams, and Damion James, filling the role Trenton Hassell and Jarvis Hayes played for last year’s 12-70 squad.
Graham’s twin brother, Joey, signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this summer.
