Nets get contracts on opening day of free agency

Posted: Updated:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — On the opening day of free agency, the New Jersey Nets say they got a couple of signed contracts.

No! Not LeBron.

The Nets announced on Thursday that they signed free agents Ben Uzoh and Brian Zoubek, two college players who were not picked in last week's NBA draft.

The 7-foot-1 Zoubek helped Duke win the national championship, averaging 5.6 points and 7.7 rebounds. The New Jersey native averaged 4.2 points and 4.5 rebounds in 133 games.

Uzoh averaged 13.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 141 career games at Tulsa. The guard was named First Team All-Conference USA as a senior and Second Team All-Conference USA as a junior and sophomore.
