Nets sign ex-Knick Jerome Jordan

The Brooklyn Nets have signed former New York Knicks center Jerome Jordan, the team announced Thursday.

Jordan, 27, appeared in 21 games for the Knicks in 2011-12, averaging two points in 5.1 minutes. The 7-footer spent last season in the Italian League.

Jordan could have a chance to compete for a spot at the end of the roster during training camp.

The Nets have 13 fully guaranteed contracts -- Cory Jefferson and Jorge Gutierrez not among them.
