Mohammed is a 14-year NBA veteran who averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds per game last season for the Oklahoma City Thunder behind Kendrick Perkins. With the Thunder signing Hasheem Thabeet this month, Mohammed has been looking for a new home to be a backup center. Earlier this week, the Nets inked Brook Lopez to a maximum deal.
