The New Jersey Nets added a familiar face to their training camp roster Friday. Linwood resident Dennis Horner signed a free-agent deal and the NBA team added him to its training-camp roster. Training camp started on Friday for New Jersey.
Horner, a Holy Spirit High School graduate, signed as a free agent with the Nets after playing with the Springfield Armor, the Nets' Developmental League team.
He was drafted by the Armor in the third round on Nov. 3.
In three games, the 6-foot-9 forward averaged 15 points and 7.7 rebounds a game.
After graduating from N.C. State, Horner played in Belgium and Cyprus. However, Horner didn't want to go back to Europe and wanted to attempt a career in the NBA.
If Horner makes the team, the Nets open the season against the New York Knicks on Dec. 17.
