Ime Udoka Signs With New Jersey Nets

Well, it isn’t Dwight Howard — or even Nene — but the New Jersey Nets did announce the addition of a front-court player on Thursday. The team has signed journeyman Ime Udoka, according to an announcement from general manager Bill King.

Udoka, 6-foot-6, 215 pounds, is a seven-year veteran who has played for five teams, holds career averages of 5.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 316 games.

The undrafted Portland State product began his career with the Lakers in 2003-04, appearing in four contests. He then appeared in eight games with the Knicks during the 2005-06 campaign. In 2006-07 he played in 75 games with the Trail Blazers. After a full season in Portland, Udoka signed with the Spurs where he spent two seasons, 2007-08 and 2008-09. For the 2009-10 campaign he signed with Sacramento and appeared in 69 games. Last season, Udoka played in 20 games with the Spurs, totaling 14 points and 19 rebounds in 130 minutes.
