The team also is shopping for a backup small foward, after the guy they were bringing to camp, 6-foot-11 Donte Greene, suffered a foot injury that likely includes a fractured ankle. Greene’s agent, Chris Luchey, maintains he is hopeful and confident Greene will be a Net this season, although his official signing with Brooklyn is on hold.
“I expect him to be a Net,” said Luchey, who indicated Greene, 24, a four-season veteran with Sacramento, was headed for an MRI last night. “I just don’t know when. We don’t know how long the rehab will be after his surgery.”
The Nets could consider possibilities such as Josh Childress, Sam Young and their own free agent, Damion James.
