The Brooklyn Nets have filled out one of their vacant spots that was opened up in the James Harden trade — which led to Caris LeVert joining the Indiana Pacers, Rodions Kurucs the Houston Rockets and both Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Nets announced on Thursday the franchise inked a deal with free agent big man Norvel Pelle.

Pelle will not be able to suit up for the Nets until Sunday’s game against the Washington Wizards, per Brian Lewis of the New York Post. Pelle has not played in an NBA game this season, having been waived by Cleveland just before the start of the season in December.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound big man made his NBA debut with the Philadelphia 76ers last season after spending multiple years in the G League and playing overseas. In his 24 games with Philly, averaged three rebounds and 1.3 blocks a night on only 9.7 minutes per game.
