The Argentine power forward is training there with his country's national team... who will play Team USA at 9 p.m. Friday on NBA TV and Facebook The nine-year NBA veteran pointed to a couple of reasons why he chose the Nets (and why they chose him.)

Brooklyn Nets sign Luis Scola, bringing roster to 12

Hours after Greivis Vasquez inked his new deal in New York, the Nets announced that Luis Scola, the 6'9" Argenntine power forward, had signed as well, apparently in Las Vegas. The signing brings the total of guaranteed deals to 12. There's been no reporting on how much the one-year deal is worth.  Assuming that his deal is similar to Vasquez --around $5 million-- the Nets still have more than $20 million in cap space. Speaking about the two signings, GM Sean Marks said... "Luis and Greivis are ideal fits for the team culture we are building in Brooklyn.Bo th are terrific competitors who...

With three Olympians, Rio gets relevant for Nets

A week ago, the Olympics looked like it would be mildly interesting to Nets fans. The team's 2015 draft pick, Juan Pablo Vaulet, was fighting for a spot on the Argentine national team and looked like he'd be the only Nets "property" in Rio de Janiero. On Saturday, Bojan Bogdanovic hit the dagger in an upset of Italy and Croatia won a spot in the Olympics for the first time since 2008.  Then, in rapid order this week, the Nets came to agreements with Greivis Vasquez of Venezuela and Luis Scola of Argentina.  And Vaulet looks like he will make the final cut, too Suddenly, the Olympics are...

Did Luis Scola interrupt a meeting with Argentine president to take Nets call?

Did this really happen?  If so, it's going to be part of the Nets lure. According to a source in Luis Scola's "camp," as reported by a Mavericks (!) blog, Scola was in a meeting with the president of Argentina when his phone started to buzz.  Jimmy Crowther of All Things Mavs writes that it caused a bit of a panic for the Argentine icon, who after all will be carrying the Argentine flag into the Olympic Stadium next month during the Parade of Nations. He knew who was calling and what it was about... Just the other day, the Nets were negotiating a deal with Scola's camp to get him in a...

Woj: Nets sign Luis Scola to one-year deal

After swinging and missing on restricted free agents Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe, Sean Marks had to go to plan B. Plan B started with the Nets adding Greivis Vasquez to backup Jeremy Lin and now the Nets have made another move. Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Nets have signed veteran power forward Luis Scola to a one-year deal. Scola averaged 8.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last season and the ex-Raptor has the ability to stretch the floor.

NBA free agency 2016: Pau Gasol fits a need, but D'Antoni likely keeps him out of Houston

Our free agency previews continue with a player who was almost a Rocket once before. Might Houston get a second chance? Yes, that's right, the llama himself is set to be an unrestricted free agent. And with the Chicago Bulls publicly stating their desire to get younger and more athletic, the forward/center is not likely heading back to Chi-town. If you recall, back in 2011, Gasol was set to become a Rocket as part of a three-way deal also involving the Lakers and the Hornets. The Rockets would get Gasol, the Hornets would pick up Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, Goran Dragic and Lamar Odom, while...
