The Nets just put the finishing touch on the most expansive training-camp battle in the NBA.

Brooklyn has just 12 players with guaranteed salaries, presumably leaving three openings on the regular-season roster. The Nets have signed their eighth player on an unguaranteed or partially guaranteed contract, bringing their roster to the offseason limit of 20.

Nets release:

The Brooklyn Nets have signed center Chris Daniels, General Manager Billy King announced today.

The eight Nets competing for three regular-season roster spots:

  • Quincy Miller
  • Ryan Boatright
  • Markel Brown
  • Willie Reed
  • Justin Harper
  • Donald Sloan
  • Chris Daniels
  • Dahntay Jones

Brooklyn could go a lot of ways with this, but it’s hard to see Daniels – who went undrafted out of at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in 2008 and has played overseas and in the D-League since – winning a spot.

Save Jones, Daniels is older than the rest of the group by four years. But Jones had a lengthy NBA career. Daniels never played in the league. If he didn’t look like an NBA player when he was younger, it’s unlikely Daniels becomes one at age 31.
