The Brooklyn Nets have signed free agent center Justin Hamilton to a 2-year deal worth $6 million.

This might not be a big deal to most casual basketball fans but the 26 year old 7 footer put up impressive numbers in 17 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2014-15 season. In 25 minutes a game, Hamilton averaged 9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.1 steals.

He played for Valencia Basket of the Liga ACB in Europe.last year.

Hamilton will serve as Brook Lopez backup and depending on the minutes he sees, he could have some fantasy value in deep leagues.
