NBA Free Agency 2012: Nets Looking At Bringing Back Damion James?

The Brooklyn Nets probably aren't going to make anymore blockbuster trades, but there's still some work to do with the roster, especially when it comes to the small forward position. The answer, reports the New York Post's Tim Bontemps, could come via free agency and a familiar name -- Damion James.

A source said the Nets have spoken to James since free agency began about the possibility of bringing back the 6-foot-7, 225-pound forward, after declining the option on his contract during the year and making him a free agent.

If the Nets sign James, he will be expected to back up newly acquired small forward Gerald Wallace, writes Bontemps. James is coming off an injury-plagued 2011-12 season, which featured him having surgery to repair a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

James was drafted by the Nets in '10 and last season averaged just 4.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
