Free-agent forward Luis Scola has agreed to a one-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told The Vertical.

Scola, 36, is the fifth free agent with whom the Nets have reached a commitment in July. Scola gives Brooklyn an experienced presence in the frontcourt, a power forward with a history of shot-making and playmaking.

In nine NBA seasons, including the 2015-16 season in Toronto, Scola has averaged 12.3 points and 6.8 rebounds. Scola averaged 8.7 points for the Raptors last season.

Scola has had a decorated FIBA basketball career, including a 2004 Olympic gold medal for Argentina.
