by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Nets center Brook Lopez is opting out of the final year of his contract, sources told the New York Daily News.

Lopez -- regarded by many as one of the top centers in the league -- averaged 17.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game for the Nets last season. He was set to make over $16 million next year if he opted-in to his final year.

Nets general manager Billy King has previously stated that the team will attempt to re-sign Lopez this offseason.


Report: Bucks to go hard after Tyson Chandler or Brook Lopez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) The Bucks will target veteran centers Tyson Chandler and Brook Lopez in free agency, according to ESPN.

The team cleared almost $23 million in space by moving Ersan Ilyasova for the more cap-friendly contracts of Caron Butler and Shawne Williams. That move will free up space for a potential splash in free agency.

Jason Kidd is well-aware of the talents of Chandler and Lopez. He played alongside the former in Dallas and New York and coached the latter with the Nets.

Nets want Brook Lopez back, but open to dealing other stars


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) The Nets want center Brook Lopez back. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson? Not so much.

General manager Billy King confirmed Wednesday his commitment to sign Lopez if, as expected, he opts out of his contract in favor of unrestricted free agency in July.

"For us to get in the playoffs that stretch, [Lopez] was the guy who carried us," King told the New York Post. "He was our best player. Without Brook Lopez, there's no way we even get to where we go to this year.

"I'll say it again: We want him back. I want him back, [coach] Lionel [Hollins] wants him back, ownership wants him back. We've all said it. There shouldn't be any more doubts about it."

King, however, is open to trading Williams and Johnson.

"We're going to explore all options, as we have [previously]," he added. "Will there be a trade? There could be, but I'm not sure."

Though his numbers were down from the previous year, Lopez was particularly productive as the Nets fought for and won a playoff spot. He finished the season averaging 17.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.


G Joe Johnson: Nets likely to be broken up in offseason


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Nets veteran guard Joe Johnson doesn't know how the roster will change next season. But he does believe that it will be quite different.

His team finished under .500 and lost in the first round of the playoffs despite boasting such talent as Johnson, Brook Lopez and Deron Williams. The Nets simply didn't mesh.

"I don't see us coming back as the same team," Johnson told the New York Daily News. "This is my third year here. I could see if we were getting better each year, but it's been kind of the opposite. So to not even be a .500 ball club in the East, it's disheartening and I don't know. I think everyone in the locker room is unsure of the future here."

The Nets have no cap space and pick 29th in the draft. Lopez and Thaddeus Young appear destined for free agency. Johnson could be traded. So could Williams, whom coach Lionel Hollins recently claimed is not worthy of a max contract.

Hollins was still complaining Saturday.

"I thought we had a higher basketball IQ as a group than we did," he said. "That was a big thing. I thought we had more toughness and all of that. But as a coach, looking from the outside, that's what I always say until you come in and coach a team you don't know for sure. I thought the skill level was better ... but we worked around it and that's part of coaching."

Williams declined to to speak to the media as he and his teammates gathered their bags and took off.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Anderson will exercise his option to become a free agent, reports the New York Post
