by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Brooklyn Nets are "standing pat at this time," on a Brook Lopez deal, a source told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports on Friday.

The trade market for Lopez heated up over the last few days, and it appeared as if Brooklyn close to striking a three-team trade with the Thunder and Hornets on Thursday night. However, the Nets were unwilling to take take Lance Stephenson in a trade and moved their discussions with Oklahoma City, along with other clubs. Had they reached on a deal with the Thunder, Brooklyn would have received Kendrick Perkins along with minor pieces. The Rockets also chimed in on Lopez.

"There was nothing we liked," a Nets source told Wojnarowski.

Lopez will be a free agent after the 2015-16 season. In 29 games, he is averaging 14.6 points and 6.3 rebounds.

Not buying into Steven Adams' Fantasy value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Thunder will turn to Steven Adams to start at center to open the season Wednesday, finally ending Kendrick Perkins' hold on the role. Should Fantasy owners be jumping at the chance to add the second-year big man, given his role?

I'm not convinced. Yes, Adams has talent and could be a solid option down the road, but I'm not sure he is ready to impact the box score in a big way. His merits for the Thunder are clear: s he brings more mobility and athleticism to the table than the plodding Perkins. However, those talents may not make much of a difference for Fantasy, where all that matters is how many times you can make your name show up in the box score.

Adams started 20 games last season while Perkins dealt with injuries, but was basically a non-factor. He averaged 3.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and just 0.5 blocks per game, while racking up 2.4 personal fouls in 17.1 minutes per game. Although he should see a bigger role this time around as a starter, fouls are probably going to put a ceiling on how much he is able to play.

Adams played 25-plus minutes six times as a rookie, and averaged just 6.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in those games. He should top those numbers but probably doesn't have much of a chance to be a consistent starting Fantasy option at this point in his career.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Kendrick Perkins sits following slow start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Thunder center Kendrick Perkins was benched for most of Wednesday's game against the Heat, after a slow start nearly buried them.

Perkins played just under five minutes in the game, a span that saw the Thunder fall 15-2 as the Heat took advantage of his lack of mobility. He ended up recording no stats in that first stint, and did not see the floor again as the Thunder thrived without him in a 112-95 win.

Perkins had been averaging 21.7 minutes per game in the month of January prior to Wednesday, an improvement on his minutes total for the season as a whole. The Thunder will still likely keep him in the starting lineup, as he moves forward. He is averaging 3.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, his lowest averages since 2004-05.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
