The Brooklyn Nets signed forward Andre Roberson, according to several reports.

Roberson, one of leagues best defenders during his prime, is reunited with Kevin Durant who he played with in Oklahoma City, along with CU teammate Spencer Dinwiddie.

The Colorado legend was with the Thunder from 2013 until 2020, earning NBA Second-Team All-Defense in 2017, and played a key role for OKC in their annual playoff runs.

Roberson has hardly played since rupturing his patellar tendon three years ago. The injury, which incurred numerous setbacks, kept him off the court from January 2018 until August 2020. He saw some time during NBA’s Disney Bubble, but Roberson’s minutes were reduced significantly. The Thunder released him going into the 2020-21 season.

Roberson averaged 4.6 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in six seasons with OKC.

Brooklyn (17-12) beat the Sacramento Kings by a score of 136-125 on Monday night. The Nets are currently third in the Eastern Conference standings and appear to have all that talent clicking together.
