Nets announce the signing of second round pick Cory Jefferson to a multi-year contract. 

Jefferson looked good in Summer League play, but he has a ways to go before the Nets envision him as anything more that just a reserve player who may or may not kick in a few minutes late in the games. Still he does have enough potential to make owners in deep dynasty leagues pay attention to him.

Nets announce the signing of second round pick Markel Brown to a multi-year contract. 

The Nets envision Brown being an outstanding asset off the bench this year as someone who can handle guarding both guard positions and possibly be a strong three-point shooter when they need. He still has some aspects of his game that need some refining, but he's a project the team is anxious to take on.

The Nets will sign both Markel Brown and Cory Jefferson.

Both Jefferson and Brown are not likely to see significant minutes off the bench this up-coming season, but are considered to be a part of the future of the team. Look for the two players to have an impact down the road once some of the veteran's in their way start to decline.

Cory Jefferson has signed a contract with the Nets.

The details of the contract have yet to be released, but it will be close to the league minimum. Jefferson played four seasons at Baylor and will be a rookie this upcoming season. He has no fantasy value this season.

Brooklyn's deal with Bojan Bogdanovic will be three years, $10.1M.

The versatile small forward has spent last season playing in Europe and will make the jump to the NBA this season. He is known for his shooting prowess and has a good shot to get quality playing time now that Paul Pierce is no longer with the Nets. He is nothing more than waiver wire fodder until he can prove otherwise during the regular season.

Alan Anderson has re-signed with the Nets for two years.

The amount of money he signed for is unclear at the moment. He played well in his first year with Brooklyn by averaging 7.2 points and just over one three pointer made per game. His fantasy value could take a jump if he starts at the small forward position, since Paul Pierce left to sign with the Wizards.

Kevin Garnett wants to return to Brooklyn and the Nets feelings are mutual.

Garnett still has a year left on his contract so it's nice to see that he will honor it and not force a trade. The team can now move forward and take care of the rest of their offfseason business.

Sources expect Nets to sign Bojan Bogdanovic sometime this week. 

The Nets claimed the rights to Bogdanovic back in 2011 but he's been playing in Europe in the Turkish League this whole time. How he'll adjust to the NBA is obviously going to be a major question moving forward.

Nets still expect Kevin Garnett to return for the final year of his contract despite the departure of Paul Pierce to the Washington Wizards Saturday.

What's the saying wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills first? If Garnett does not force a trade he may just decide to throw his hands up in the air and say screw it, retirement here I come. If for whatever reason he plays another year, regardless of what team he plays on, he will have as much fantasy value as Chris Webber had when he played with the Pistons or Rasheed Wallace while with the Knicks. In essence, Garnett will either light up a retirement cigar or become the new victory cigar.

Nets Brook Lopez (foot) has advanced to basketball related activities, league source says. No contact yet but "moving really well" on court.

Lopez is an incredible offensive presence in the paint, and possibly the best offensive center int he NBA when healthy. He had foot surgery in January and then further surgery on his ankle in March, so he has some serious rehab to go through before we can count on him being fully back in 2014-15.
