Donte Greene signing with Nets on hold due to ankle surgery

That whole Donte Greene has reached a deal with the Nets thing has fallen apart.

And when a player’s agent is being vague, it’s never a good sign.

Which brings us to this tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports:

Greene’s expected signing with Nets this week now on hold due to pending surgery on ankle “with some type of fracture, “Chris Luchey tells Y!

Luchey is Greene’s agent and if he is saying it is “some type” of fracture I’d be a little worried. And the fact this was a non-guaranteed contract is not good news for him even if he had signed it.

Greene had spent his career in Sacramento not finding good footing in the constantly-shifting sands of that franchise. He needed a new start, a new chance. This is a big set back for him.
