Gerald Green Reportedly To Sign Second 10-Day Contract With New Jersey Nets

Gerald Green once blew out a candle on top of the rim while dunking a basketball. His latest feat is less memorable to most NBA fans, but far more important to the 26-year old small forward.

The former Boston Celtic managed to convince the New Jersey Nets to keep him around for a second 10-day contract, according to a NorthJersey.com report, extending -- at least temporarily -- Green's NBA return.

After being drafted with the 18th pick of the first round of the 2005 NBA Draft, Green displayed a soft outside shooting touch to go with his wealth of athleticism, prompting some comparisons to Tracy McGrady early in Green's career. But Green's mental game never caught up to his physical prowess, and he ended up bouncing around basketball's minor leagues during the past two seasons.

Green's work with the D-League's LA Defenders -- he was named MVP of the D-League All-Star Game -- prompted the New Jersey Nets to offer Green his initial 10-day contract. During the life of his first 10-day contract, Green averaged 7.7 points while shooting 52.6 percent from the field.
