Stephen Graham Rumors

All NBA Players

He scored 15 points in the Bucks’ preseason opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers and has played shooting guard through power forward due to recent injuries to Ersan Ilyasova and Ekpe Udoh. “I’ve been playing pretty decent overall,” Graham said. “I’ve been out of position at the four because we’ve been having some injuries, but right now I’m in a spot where I’m just trying to get in. “It’s been up and down my first time out of the league. I’m just trying to get it back together and find another home, another team.”

If he can make it to Christmas, he’ll be fine. But Stephen Graham knows that’s hardly a lock. “I’ll know Saturday,” Graham said after the Nets lost to the Knicks, 88-82, tonight in Madison Square Garden. “It’s nerve-wracking, but it’s part of the business. It comes with the territory. You just never know in this league, though, you know? You’ve got guarantees, ups and downs, ins and outs, but the only thing you can do is stay positive, stay in prayer and let it handle itself.”

The Nets announced this morning they have waived 6-6 swingman Stephen Graham, whose $1.1 million contract would have become fully guaranteed had he been on the team’s roster on Christmas Day, when the NBA season opens. Graham, who signed with the Nets as a free agent prior to last season, averaged 3.4 points and 2.1 rebounds in 59 games (28 starts) last season. The six-year veteran has averaged 4.0 points and 1.8 rebounds in 239 NBA games.

Johnson said whenever Anthony Morrow returns from his hamstring injury, it does not necessarily mean Stephen Graham will be the one who is bounced from the starting lineup. Johnson likes the job Graham has done on defense, guarding opponents’ top perimeter players. “In his mind, I would be trying to do whatever I can to convince the coach to keep me in the lineup,’’ Johnson said of Graham. “Because teams that really have one guy at the two or three they can stick on another team’s best perimeter player. That’s what the really good teams have.’’

The Nets added yet another able-bodied, defensive-minded practice player today, signing Stephen Graham to a partially-guaranteed, one-year deal that includes a team option for a second season. Graham will be listed somewhere behind Anthony Morrow, Terrence Williams, Travis Outlaw and Damion James on the depth chart for wings, but the broad-shouldered, 6-foot-6 vet has a way of surprising people: Last season in Charlotte, Larry Brown grew so enamored of his toughness and competitiveness that Graham kept top draft pick Gerald Henderson chained to the bench for most of the season.
