Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - The Brooklyn Nets made a pair of signings on Thursday, inking free agent guard Shaun Livingston and re-signing forward/center Andray Blatche to undisclosed contracts.

In his first season with the Nets, the 6-foot-11 Blatche averaged 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds. He was the only Net to appear in all 82 games.

The eight-year veteran, who spent his first seven seasons with the Washington Wizards, holds career averages of 9.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over 491 games.

"Andray was a vital member of our team last season," said Nets general manager Billy King. "He provides valuable front court depth, and we look forward to his continued contribution."

Livingston, an eight-year veteran who has played for seven different teams, averaged 6.3 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 66 games last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards.

"Shaun's abilities give our roster added versatility in the backcourt," said King. "His basketball acumen and the way he plays the game are a great fit for this team."

Livingston, who was the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, holds career averages of 6.7 points and 3.5 assists in 390 contests.
