Nets to sign Outlaw to $35 million deal

The New Jersey Nets have reached agreement on a five-year, $35 million contract with forward Travis Outlaw(notes), Outlaw’s agent told Yahoo! Sports.

The contract is fully guaranteed and doesn’t contain a fourth-year opt-out. Outlaw is expected to sign next week.

Outlaw’s agent Bill Duffy confirmed the deal.

Outlaw, 25, split last season between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers. He appeared in only 34 games total after breaking his left foot early in the season.

During his six-plus seasons with the Blazers, Outlaw became one of the team’s best fourth-quarter scorers. He averaged 12.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 81 games for Portland during the 2008-09 season.
