He is expected to play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday evening at Staples Center, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.

“The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision,” Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. ” We needed to increase our depth inside, and with his experience and size, we felt he was the right choice for a 10-day contract.”
