Nets Accept Fate: Sign Travis Outlaw
Outlaw spent last season with the Clippers and the Trailblazers. Before being traded to L.A. after only 11 games last season he spent eight years of his career in Portland.
Coming straight out of high school in 2003 Outlaw has spent his entire career as a role player and is expected to take on a starting role for the Nets, whom are in the beginning of a very obvious rebuilding phase.
Most of the mid-level free agents will sign after LeBron makes is major announcement tonight and the Nets wanted to get to the top of the heap in signing Outlaw.
Despite a league worst 12-70 the Nets do have a strong core of young players they want to build around. The core of Brook Lopez, Devin Harris and Courtney Lee will join third overall selection Derek Favours as New Jerseys main starters.
Outlaw has averaged 9.1 ppg and 3.6 reb for his career and is a 44% percent shooter.
