Damion James journey from the University of Texas?where he played alongside Kevin Durant?to the Brooklyn Nets has been a long and tenuous one to say the least.? James was a first round draft pick (No. 24) that was acquired in a draft day trade with the Atlanta Hawks in 2010 and looked to be a rotation player right away for the then New Jersey Nets.

Things did not work out so well for James in his first stint with the Nets due to two foot injuries but he has made his way back and signed a 10-day contract with Brooklyn.

Here's more about James journey back to the Nets and into Brooklyn.

NEW YORK ? The Nets went back to the future by signing Damion Jones to a 10-day contract. After being selected in the first round of the 2010 NBA draft, James?selected by the Atlanta Hawks before being traded to the Nets?spent two years with the club before his third year rookie option was declined.

James began this NBA season as a member of the NBDL's Bakersfield Jam. He averaged 15.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 28.9 minutes per game. Having seemingly proven himself on the NBA's smaller stage, the Nets opted to sign James to a 10-day contract and give him the 15th and final roster spot that was opened up when the club waived Josh Childress back on Dec. 29.
