EAST RUTHERFORD - The New Jersey Nets, who have kept the core of the team that has reached the NBA Finals the last two years intact, re-signed reserve forward Brian Scalabrine on Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Scalabrine, who was selected in the second round of the 2001 draft, has averaged 2.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 87 games over the last two seasons. The 6-9 Scalabrine, a fan favroite for his enthusiasm and hustle, also has appeared in 13 playoff games the last two years, totaling six points and seven rebounds.

"We are pleased to re-sign Brian," Nets general manager Rod Thorn said. "He has made valuable strides over the past two seasons and we look forward to his continued development in the future."

The Nets re-signed point guard Jason Kidd to a 6-year, $103 million contract last month and earlier this week re-signed guard Lucious Harris. New Jersey also inked former Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning to a 4 year, $22 million pact in July.
