The Nets continued to add veterans to the roster, agreeing to deals with guard Randy Foye and power forward Anthony Bennett.
The Vertical first reported the Foye deal, and the Nets announced the signing of Bennett. The Vertical reported that Foye will get a one-year deal. The Nets did not release the terms of the Bennett deal, but The Vertical reported that it is a two-year minimum deal.
The 32-year-old Foye has played for six teams in his NBA career. He started out this past season with the Nuggets but was traded to the Thunder, averaging 5.6 points in 27 games. Foye, who played at Villanvoa, has averaged 10.8 points per game over his career.
Bennett, 23, was the No. 1 overall pick by the Cavaliers in the 2013 draft out of UNLV but has yet to live up to expectations. He played in only 19 games for the Raptors this past season, averaging 1.5 points. Bennett is also a member of Canada’s national team. He will now get a chance to play under new Nets coach Kenny Atkinson.
“We have been excited to watch Anthony’s progress this summer with his national team, and look forward to the opportunity of having Kenny and his staff work with him to continue his development,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement.
The Nets have also added veterans Jeremy Lin, Trevor Booker, Luis Scola and Greivis Vasquez.
