It was known the Nets had had serious conversations with center Nazr Mohammed, but apparently things are about to take the next step.

Airplane mode to Newark… ✈✈✈

The deal likely will be for near the veteran minimum. Mohammed would come off the bench behind starter Brook Lopez and could provide some defense and few solid minutes at the five. But the 14-year veteran’s skills took a step back last season in Oklahoma City and we’ll see how much he has to give in Brooklyn.

Expect it to be official in the next few days.
