The Nets are hoping former No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett can finally find his footing in Brooklyn.

According to ESPN's Shams Charania, Bennett has agreed to a two-year minimum deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

Believe it or not, Bennett logged more National Basketball Association minutes with the Timberwolves (894) than he did with both the Raptors and Cavaliers, who selected him No. 1 overall in 2013 out of UNLV. In 16 postseason games for Oklahoma City, Foye averaged 11.9 minutes and 2.5 points per game, making just 34.1% of his field goal attempts. For as long as Foye remains in Brooklyn, he'll be a player that new head coach Kenny Atkinson can lean on to bring his young team along in this lengthy rebuilding process.

He played in 52 games with Cleveland as a rookie, averaging 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.

Yahoo.com also reported Thursday that the Nets have reached a one-year agreement with veteran guard Randy Foye.

After their offer sheets to restricted free agents Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson were matched by Portland and Miami, the Nets signed Greivis Vasquez, Luis Scola, Joe Harris, Bennett and Foye to short-term deals, maintaining salary cap flexibility in the process.

The first year of the contract is guaranteed.

The Nets don't look like much a free agent destination now, but if one of their unproven talents blossoms, things could look much different a year from now.
