Almost everything for the Brooklyn Nets has gone right this offseason, but on Saturday a free-agent target escaped their grasp. Veteran big man Nazr Mohammed inked a deal with the Chicago Bulls, reports the New York Post's Peter Vescey. The Nets are looking for a back-up for starting center Brook Lopez, and Mohammed was suppose to help fill that void.
The Nets currently have four big men under contract -- Lopez, Kris Humphries, Mirza Teletovic and Reggie Evans. But only Lopez is taller than 6-foot-9, leaving the Nets severely undersized if Lopez misses any time, like he did last season.
