Nets sign former first round pick Krstic

East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) – The New Jersey Nets signed 2002 first
round draft choice Nenad Krstic of Serbia-Montenegro, the team announced
Tuesday.

Krstic, a 7-foot center/forward, was selected by New Jersey with the 24th
overall pick two years ago and has been developing his game overseas in Europe
since.

“We are very pleased to add Nenad to our roster,” said Nets CEO Rod Thorn. “He
is a developing talent who should add depth to our frontcourt rotation.”

Krstic averaged 16.9 points and 6.6 rebounds in 14 games in the YUBA League
and 13.4 points and 2.9 boards in nine Euro League Games.
