The Nets announced Friday morning that they had signed rookie swingman Kris Joseph for the rest of the season. “It’s great,” Joseph said. “To get the chance to be on a playoff team, to get to experience that, and learn, because I know the intensity and everything goes up in the playoffs, it will be good to be around for that and learn from these guys.” New York Post

The Brooklyn Nets have signed forward Kris Joseph for the remainder of the season, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released. Joseph (6-7/215), who signed a 10-day contract with Brooklyn on April 2, has appeared in three games for the Nets, averaging 3.3 minutes per game. Joseph was Brooklyn's second NBA D-League Call-Up of the season, joining the Nets from the Springfield Armor. NBA.com

Kris Joseph is finishing up his first 10-day contract with the Nets, but his prospects for staying are good. “He’s going to stick around,” said veteran Jerry Stackhouse, nodding toward the former Celtic as he went through a more than rigorous pre-game workout at the Garden last night. “When you see a guy with a shirt that wet, you know he’ll be sticking around.” Boston Herald

Kris Joseph's 10-day contract with the Nets expires at midnight and Joseph tells Tim Bontemps that he hasn't heard yet what the Nets are thinking. But P.J. Carlesimo tells Bontemps he likes what he sees and Mario Elie and Jerry Stackhouse tell Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald that the ex-Celtic's work ethic will rule the day. "I like Kris a lot," Carlesimo said. "I think he’s active. ... I’d like to be able to get him some more time so we could look at him. I think Kris Joseph can be a good player in the league. It’s just hard for us to get him time right now." NetsDaily

If the Nets re-sign Joseph, they have the option of giving him a two-year deal with a team option for next season. That retains his rights over the summer and if he does well next year, gives them his Early Bird rights and the ability to re-sign him to a contract outside the salary cap. He was scoreless last night in three minutes. He has played a total of five minutes over the 10-day without scoring. NetsDaily
