Robin Lopez officially signed with the Knicks on Thursday.
Lopez had a bit of a down-year in Portland during the 2014-15 season, making it through just 59 games and posting averages of 9.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game on 53.5 percent shooting from the field and 77.2 percent from the stripe. We're expecting a bounce-back year during his first season with the Knicks, and he should make for a fine late-mid round selection in next year's drafts. Jul 9 - 3:55 PM

The Knicks are finalizing a four-year, $54 million deal with Robin Lopez.

It's still not completely official yet because DeAndre Jordan has a microscopic chance to choose the Knicks, but this sounds like a done deal. While that's a massive contract for a guy who only had a 15.6 usage rate and only a 12.3 defensive rebound rate last season, Lopez is really a nice fit for the Knicks. Ro-Lo was also very good at rim protection last year, which was a bad weakness for the Knicks. He'll be an interesting standard league target in the 75-100 range.

Robin Lopez has committed to the Knicks and will sign with them unless DeAndre Jordan chooses the Knicks.

In other words, Lopez is on the Knicks. While Lopez won't come cheap, he is actually a very good fit with them. He ranked third in the NBA for offensive rebounds in the 2013-14 season, he doesn't have many fouling issues, he's been very healthy in his career and he'll have a low usage rate on offense, which Carmelo Anthony will like. Lopez did have a down year in 2014-15, but he could wind up being a mid-round guy in standard leagues next season.

Unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez is discussing a deal with the Knicks in the range of $12-13 million per season.

The Knicks were always going to overpay for Ro-Lo, so this is not a surprise. As one of the best offensive rebounders in the NBA, he should have success next to Carmelo Anthony. Plus, if Kristaps Porzingis can develop quickly to stretch the floor, it would almost be an ideal situation for him from a schematic standpoint.

There is reportedly "mutual interest" between the Knicks and unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Trail Blazers remain an option for Lopez, but the Knicks could potentially pry him away with a big money offer after missing out on the big name free agents. If Lopez does not return to Portland, Mason Plumlee would likely assume the starting center position, and he would make for an excellent late-round selection in fantasy leagues if that's the case.

The New York Knicks reportedly met with unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez on Wednesday night.

After starting out with lofty free agent targets such as Greg Monroe, Marc Gasol, and LaMarcus Aldridge, the Knicks look to have moved onto Plan B (or Plan C). Lopez would be a solid addition to the Knicks frontcourt after averaging 9.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks with the Blazers in 2014-15 and could wind up being a solid late-round fantasy value if he manages to see more than the 27.8 minutes per game that averaged with Portland last season.
Jul 2 - 12:00 PM

The Bucks had a meeting with unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Bucks were not able to get Tyson Chandler, so they may be more aggressive than teams like the Knicks. Lopez would move into the starting lineup, which would hurt John Henson and Zaza Pachulia. Of course, nothing is imminent here.

The Knicks are planning to meet with unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez in Los Angeles.

A New York Lopez rivalry? The Knicks were gashed in the paint last year and could use a guy like Lopez to help them on the glass. He's much more durable than his brother, but Robin isn't quite the offensive presence.
Jul 1 - 4:09 PM

The Bucks, Pelicans and Knicks are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of unrestricted free agent Robin Lopez.

The Blazers remain in the mix, but after acquiring Mason Plumlee, they may elect to let Lopez walk if the offers get to rich for their liking. Alvin Gentry coached Lopez during his first four years in the league with the Suns, so that could perhaps tilt the odds in New Orleans' favor in luring away Robin from Portland.

Robin Lopez, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, said that he would love to return to Portland next season.

"Nothing is 100 percent certain," Lopez said. "So far, I've loved my time in Portland. I would love to come back. I'm very open to coming back." Lopez struggled mightily against the Grizzlies in the playoffs, and Portland eventually started to utilize Meyers Leonard down the stretch instead. Lopez' fantasy value will largely depend on where he lands in free agency, and it's definitely possible that his time in Portland could be up.

Robin Lopez stated during his exit interview that he would like to return to Portland as a free agent this offseason.

"I like it here [in Portland]. I think it’s a pretty good fit," said Lopez. "I’ve enjoyed my two years here so far." Lopez also acknowledged that he really doesn't know what will happen during free agency, but he has put up some of the best numbers of his career as a member of the Trail Blazers. He did have a bit of a down-year this season due to injury, posting averages of 9.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 77.2 percent from the charity stripe. Still, he doesn't hurt you in any one category, and his steady contributions in shot blocking make him worth owning as a low-end guy in standard leagues.
Apr 30 - 6:45 PM

Robin Lopez was impressive on offense vs. the Jazz on Saturday, scoring 21 points with six boards, one assist and one block in 32 minutes.

The best thing about this line was the fact that he did it against the one they call Rudy Gobert, so his owners should be feeling pretty good about themselves. There is nothing flashy about his game, but Lopez has been consistent with averages of 13.0 points, 7.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.0 block over his last five games. Owners in standard leagues can certainly do worse.
Apr 12 - 1:30 AM

Robin Lopez lost the battle to his brother, Brook, against the Nets on Monday with eight points, seven boards, two assists and two blocks.

He was 4-of-11 from the field tonight for his highest shot total of the 2015 year. In his previous 23 games since the break, Lopez averaged 9.0 points, 6.4 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.2 steals. All of averages are down from his pre-break numbers, so he's been a bit of a letdown. That's a little surprising because Ro-Lo was a stud after the break last season. He still leads the NBA in mascot fights, though.
Apr 6 - 9:29 PM

Robin Lopez double-doubled against the Suns on Friday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

Revenge game? He had six offensive boards and put up his second double-double since the break. Lopez hasn't attempted more than eight shots from the field or blocked more than one shot in any game since Mar. 15, so his fantasy value isn't great right now. Hopefully this game will get him going. Ro-Lo is a fringe player to own in standard leagues.
Mar 28 - 2:37 AM

Robin Lopez had 16 points, 10 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

That's his first double-double in over a month, although he flirts with them often. RoLo is averaging 11.5 points, 6.8 boards and 2.0 blocks in March.
