Free agent Jared Sullinger is “exploring the opportunity” of signing with the Nets, his agent David Falk told the Daily News.
On Tuesday a picture surfaced on social media of Sullinger wearing Nets gear while posing with Brooklyn’s D’Angelo Russell at the team’s practice facility. However, Falk said nothing has been finalized.
“I’m a big fan of the coach (Kenny Atkinson),” Falk said. “He’s a great motivator, and they have a great facility.
“(Sullinger) is a talented big man and we’re looking into an opportunity”

The Nets have a roster spot open and could use a big man like Sullinger, 25, who played only 11 games last season with the Raptors after undergoing foot surgery. Sullinger was then traded to the Suns and waived at the deadline.
He spent most of his career with the Celtics after being drafted by them 21st overall in 2012, emerging as a regular starter in his second and third seasons. He struggled at times with weight issues, but certainly looks lean in the photo that was posted by a Nets fan on Tuesday.
