The Brooklyn Nets are finalizing a deal to land Los Angeles Clippers big man Reggie Evans in exchange for a future second-round draft pick, according to a tweet from Howard Beck of The New York Times.

According to Kurt Helin of NBCSports.com, the Nets will reportedly pay Evans $5 million over three years. Evans is a veteran power forward known for his gritty style of play and rebounding. He averaged nearly five rebounds in just under 14 minutes per game last season for the Clippers.

With Kris Humphries and Brook Lopez possibly on their way out if the Nets sign Dwight Howard, Evans could play a more prominent role in coach Avery Johnson's rotation. The Nets also finalized a deal on July 3 to sign forward Mirza Teletovic from the EuroLeague to a three-year contract worth $15.6 million.
