Nets sign Edwards to standard NBA contract before playoffs


NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets have signed Kessler Edwards to a standard NBA contract, making him eligible to play in the postseason. The second-round pick from Pepperdine had been on a two-way contract, which meant he couldn’t play beginning next week. But the Nets changed that Sunday on the final day of the regular season. The 6-foot-8 forward has played in 47 games, starting 22, and averaged 5.8 points. He has become a regular member of the rotation, playing about 20 minutes per game. The Nets made room on the roster for the move by waiving veteran James Johnson on Thursday.
