EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New Jersey Nets agreed in principle with veteran forward Travis Outlaw, the club announced on Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are very pleased to add Travis to our roster," said Nets president Rod Thorn. "He is a young, athletic player who will fit in very well with the style of play that (head coach) Avery (Johnson) has installed."

The 25-year-old Outlaw was taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2003 draft by Portland and played six-plus seasons with the Trail Blazers before getting dealt to the Los Angeles Clippers in February.

In 34 games -- six starts -- with both teams in 2009-10, Outlaw combined to average 9.1 points and 3.6 rebounds.

For his career, he has appeared in 400 contests, starting 32, and has averaged 9.5 points and 3.4 rebounds.
