According to a report by Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders, swingman Donte Green will play for the Brooklyn Net’s Summer League team.

Greene was selected with the No. 28 pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2008 NBA draft. He was then traded to the Houston Rockets, playing for their Summer League team that year.

On Aug. 14, 2008, Greene was sent to the Sacramento Kings, spending four years with the franchise.

Greene was slated to play for the Nets’ Summer League team before fracturing his ankle in 2012. He will have the most experience of anyone on the roster with 253 games played during his career.

NetsDaily.com provided an in-depth look at who will be filling out the rest of the team:

The Orlando summer league starts next Saturday.  The addition of Greene seemingly brings the summer league roster to the maximum of 12. In addition to the three players from last year’s roster — Mason PlumleeJorge Gutierrez and Marquis Teague —  the Nets have invited Adonis Thomas, who played at Springfield last season and had stints with Orlando and Philadelphia, and their three first round draft picks — Markel Brown,Xavier Thames and Cory Jefferson to Orlando.  In addition, Nick Minnerath and Michael Jenkins, Americans who played overseas last season; Slovenian center Alen Omic and undrafted Harvard forward Kyle Casey are also reportedly on the roster.

At just 26 years old, the jury is not yet out on Greene, although this may be one of his last chances to crack an NBA roster. He has career averages of 6.1 points and 2.4 rebounds on 40.6 percent shooting.
