Report: Nuggets pushing Hickson-McGee combo for Nets' Lopez


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) The Nuggets have been reportedly targeting Nets center Brook Lopez in the run up to the trade deadline, and the team has been pushing a combination of big men JJ Hickson and JaVale McGee in talks with the Nets, ESPN reports.

The Nets, per the report, have refused the Nuggets offer for Lopez, who scored a season-high 35 points on 15 of 28 shooting Friday while hauling in 12 rebounds. The team should have plenty of interested parties looking to add Lopez and his upside before the deadline.


Nets C Brook Lopez scores season-high 35 points vs. Raptors


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Nets center Brook Lopez scored a season-high 35 points on 15 of 28 shooting while hauling in 12 rebounds in his team's 127-122 overtime loss to the Raptors Friday.

Lopez rode his hot shooting night to 41 minutes of action off the bench, with Kevin Garnett playing just nine minutes. The center also kicked in three blocks and three steals in addition to his fifth double-double of the season. He'll match up with the Clippers Monday.


Heat's Pat Riley denies he had a package deal for Nets' Brook Lopez


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Heat president Pat Riley denied previous reports that Miami had offered forward Josh McRoberts in a package deal for Nets center Brook Lopez, according to the Miami Herald. According to a previous report from Yahoo! Sports, Miami offered McRoberts, Norris Cole and Chris Andersen for Lopez. Trade talks for Lopez died down, but could ramp back up leading up to the trade deadline.

"There's a lot of conversation but we're not active," Riley said. "I'm not going to move chairs. I've been in the chair-moving business before and that's all you do is move chairs around…

"If there is something that makes sense that can really help us, then we would consider it. But we're not about to give up assets that we don’t have, that we need, to make a lateral move out of desperation, to take what I think is a playoff team to make the playoffs. If it's a player to take us into the future, we'll think about it. It's fluid."


Report: Nuggets to make a push for Nets' Brook Lopez before deadline


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) The Nuggets are expected to be among the suitors for Nets center Brook Lopez leading up to the Feb. 19 trade deadline, reports the Denver Post

The Nets tried to deal Lopez last week, and even had a proposed deal on the table with the Oklahoma City Thunder before trade talks broke down. Per the paper, the Nets are expected to try again before the trade deadline.

Lopez, who has a player option after this season, is averaging 15.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks through 32 contests. He's elevated his game amidst trade rumors, averaging 16.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks over his last seven games (two starts).


Nets' Brook Lopez picks up 22 points on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Nets center Brook Lopez picked up 22 points on Wednesday against the Kings.

Lopez didn't get the start, but wound up playing 38 minutes during the contest. He shot 8-15 from the floor, but missed his only three point attempt. He sunk six of his seven free throws. Lopez also added six rebounds and six blocks. 


Nets C Brook Lopez scores 26 points vs. Wizards Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Nets center Brook Lopez shared the team scoring lead Friday with 26 points on 8 of 14 shooting from the field and 10 of 12 shooting from the free-throw line in his team's 102-80 road win over the Wizards.

Playing amidst swirling trade rumors, Lopez came alive in the second half, racking up 25 of his 26 points after halftime. He also tallied three rebounds, two block and two steals while playing 23 minutes off the bench.

''I don't pay attention," Lopez said of the trade rumors after the game, per the Associated Press. "I'm here. I've been here all day. I like it here. I've been here my whole career. I'm kind of partial to it now. I've been on the block for like 6 1/2 years now. It's no big deal.''

The Nets brought an end to a seven-game losing streak Friday and will look to build off the victory Saturday in a rematch with the Wizards in Brooklyn.


Nets' Kevin Garnett back in the starting lineup Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Nets forward Kevin Garnett will return to the starting lineup Friday against the Wizards. Garnett, who is available to play after serving his one-game suspension for headbutting Rockets center Dwight Howard, is averaging 7.2 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. 

With Garnett starting, Brook Lopez will be coming off the bench once again for Brooklyn.

The Nets are currently 9 1/2-point underdogs against Washington.


Trade talks loom large over Nets' frontcourt


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Nets' proposed deal to move Brook Lopez to the Thunder fell apart about as quickly as it appeared to come together, but the team's desire to move the oft-injured big man probably remains intact. According to a Yahoo.com report from Friday morning, the Nets hoped to settle on a trade destination by the end of the weekend. What would be the Fantasy fallout from a Lopez trade, if and when it goes down?

Obviously, Lopez's value is going to depend on where he lands, though there isn't as much variance as you might think. He's been splitting time with Mason Plumlee for weeks, averaging just 21.7 minutes per game since returning from a back injury in late December. With teams like the Thunder, Heat and Lakers mentioned as possible destinations, he will probably end up in a similar situation no matter where he might end up, so don't expect his value to change much with a trade.

Plumlee would obviously be the big winner if Lopez is moved, and there's no reason for him to be unowned in any leagues at this point. Plumlee has been unaffected by Lopez's return to the lineup, as he is still averaging 14.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.2 blocks per game since Lopez's return. I'm not sure how much more room he has to grow, but Plumlee looks like a solid, borderline top-10 Fantasy center for the rest of the way; if you're in one of the six percent of CBSSports.com leagues where he is still available, grab him before it's too late.


Report: Nets 'standing pat at this time' on Brook Lopez trade
