The Brooklyn Nets today announced that they have signed center Henry Sims to a 10-day contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Sims (6’10”, 248) has appeared in 121 games (57 starts) in parts of three seasons with New Orleans, Cleveland and Philadelphia, recording averages of 7.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 18.8 minutes per game.

Shams Charania: The Brooklyn Nets are planning to sign forward Henry Sims of Grand Rapids to a 10-day contract, league sources tell The Vertical.
The Suns have at least three players for each of the guard and forward spots. With only Tyson Chandler and Alex Len in the middle, the Suns may look for another center. That center may be Henry Sims. Sims already has been in Phoenix for a week, participating in the voluntary workouts that started in earnest two weeks early with 10 contract players at US Airways Center daily. “This is an opportunity for me to show what I can do for a team that can make the playoffs,” Sims said. “I want to show the NBA I can do what I was doing there (in Philadelphia) on any team and do more. It gives me an extra boost of energy to be here for a potential playoff team.”
