Billy King continues to fill out the Brooklyn Nets' inaugural roster.

The Nets today announced they re-signed guard Keith Bogans, bringing him back into the fold after he only managed to play in five games with them in 2011-12 due to a season-ending ankle injury.

Bogans, a 6-5, 215-pounder and nine-year veteran, went down against the Pistons on Feb. 8.

Before coming to the Nets, Bogans started in all 82 games for the Bulls in 2010-11, and averaged 4.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.8 minutes per contest. 

Bogans, 32, might not be the only former Kentucky Wildcat to call Brooklyn home next season. The Nets are reportedly set to host center Nazr Mohammed, 34, this weekend and are poised to sign him as well, according to NBA.com.

Avery Johnson said at Brook Lopez's press conference in Brooklyn on Wednesday that finding a backup center remained a top priority for the Nets.
