Brooklyn Nets

Andrea Bargnani, former No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft, is now a member of the Brooklyn Nets after agreeing to a two-year deal.

Why? Well, we’re exactly still not sure.

The Brooklyn Nets have officially signed big-man Andrea Bargnani to a two-year contract for the veterans minimum, via ESPN.1NETS2

Barngnani is of course the international bust that was the No. 1 overall draft pick of the Toronto Raptors during the 2006 NBA Draft. For the last two-seasons he played with the New York Knicks.

Actually, played is a word that should be thought of lightly. He only participated in 71-games of a possible 164.

Billy King and the Nets narrowly beat out the Sacramento Kings (who actually offered more money) to obtain the services of the seven-footer. Bargnani reportedly has decided to join the Nets due to a better fit.


The oft-injured big man will now take his brittle ways to Brooklyn.
