Brooklyn Nets have signed center Moses Brown to a second 10-day contract

The Brooklyn Nets have signed center Moses Brown to a second 10-day contract, according to a statement made by the team on Tuesday. Brown’s initial 10-day contract expired on Monday after being signed to the deal on Mar. 17. Brown came to the Nets after being waived by the New York Knicks on Mar. 12.

Brown, in his fourth season out of UCLA, has played only one game for the Nets since being on the team. That game came in Sunday’s 119-106 loss to the Orlando Magic. Brown came into the game during garbage time (came into the game with 3:53 left in the fourth quarter with the Magic leading 115-122) and picked up one steal and one turnover in 4 minutes of playing time.

While not officially confirmed by anyone within the Nets’ organization, it appears that Brown was signed to apply pressure to second-year center Day’Ron Sharpe. Sharpe has responded to the challenge well by averaging averaging 9.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game while shooting 57.5% from the field in the six games that he’s played in since Nerlens Noel was signed as Brooklyn’s initial attempt to find a backup center.

Since Brown has been out of the rotation since he was signed, it’s possible that this is just to keep the motivation on Sharpe. However, it’s also possible that Brooklyn has plans for Brown down the line with the postseason fast approaching.
