Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - On the same day the Brooklyn Nets signed Jorge Gutierrez to a multi-year contract, the NBA fined the guard for a flagrant foul Friday.

While terms of the contract were not released, the fine is for $15,000.

Gutierrez, who signed 10-day contracts on March 6 and March 16, has appeared in five games for the Nets, averaging 3.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists. He scored a season-high 10 points versus Boston on March 21.

The fine was for making excessive contact above the shoulders with Charlotte Bobcats center Cody Zeller during Wednesday night's game. Gutierrez was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected for the incident, which occurred with 6:42 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Bobcats' 116-111 overtime win.

The University of California product is in his first season in the NBA. In 35 games this season with Canton of the NBA Development League, Gutierrez averaged 13.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 1.2 steals.
