Lionel Hollins said that Brook Lopez is becoming a more versatile player.
"Brook has made great strides in becoming a more versatile player," Hollins said. "That’s all I ask for him to be -- more committed to be being an all-around player, to being a better rebounder and not just being happy with 16-17 points, but going out there and rebounding the ball, blocking shots, helping on defense, all of the things that it takes to win. Diving on the floor for a loose ball." Lopez has been an injury risk throughout his career, but the fact that he played 72 games last season should help his value. Aug 1 - 12:04 PM

Brook Lopez and the Nets have agreed upon a three-year contract worth $60 million.

This has been a foregone conclusion since a few hours after free agency began, as it appears BroLo didn't even contemplate leaving Brooklyn. The third year was originally reported as a player option, but that's not the case. The 27-year-old has All-Star talent and he's coming off a nice season in which he played 72 games, though his injury history still makes him a risky pick on draft day.
Jul 1 - 11:36 AM

The Nets and Brook Lopez are finalizing a deal worth a reported $60 million over three years.

Brooklyn prioritized BroLo in free agency, particularly after trading away Mason Plumlee on draft night, and they quickly locked him up just hours into free agency. Lopez played 72 games last season, quelling concerns about his surgically-reconstructed foot, and he's a solid top-40 fantasy player when healthy. The deal reportedly gives Lopez a third-year player option, and it also includes "some protections for the Nets should a recurrence of Lopez's past foot issues sideline him again."
Jul 1 - 1:51 AM

The Brooklyn Nets are nearing an agreement to re-sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young.

There doesn't appear to be any drama in Brooklyn right now, and it sounds like the Nets could have a deal in place for both players very soon. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year, $60 million deal, while Young is targeting a four-year, $50 million deal. Stay tuned.
Jul 1 - 12:48 AM

Brook Lopez is expected to return to the Brooklyn Nets.

According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Sports, there is mutual interest from the Nets and from Lopez in having the big man return to Brooklyn. Lopez is reportedly looking for a three-year deal in the $60 million range and with the Nets deciding to trade Mason Plumlee last week, it's looking more and more likely that Lopez will get his terms.
Jun 30 - 10:19 AM

Brook Lopez is commanding a deal in the three-year, $60 million range from the Nets in free agency, according to ESPN.com.

He can thank a big post-break run for this high demand, averaging 19.7 points, 9.2 boards and 1.8 blocks on 52.5 percent from the field. Lopez had chronic foot issues leading up to this strong finish, so cashing in on a big deal would be a huge win for him.

Brook Lopez will not exercise his player option for the last year of his contract and will become a free agent.

Players continue to opt out of deals and this is not a surprise with the Collective Bargaining Agreement set to change. The Nets are hopeful to sign Lopez to a long-term deal this offseason, but now they'll have some competition. Lopez may have earned some money this spring, averaging 19.7 points, 9.2 boards and 1.8 blocks after the break.
Jun 26 - 3:35 PM

According to Nets general manager Billy King, the plan is to re-sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young this summer, even if it forces them to pay the luxury tax.

This could mean that Lopez and Young are leaning towards opting out and hitting the open market, but nothing is certain yet. Young has until June 22 to decide while Lopez has until June 29, so this story will continue to heat up over the next few weeks. If Lopez or Young leaves this summer, Mason Plumlee could be the primary beneficiary.
Jun 3 - 1:22 PM

The Bucks could be in the Brook Lopez market this offseason if he hits free agency.

This is merely a rumor, but it's one that has some legs. Lopez has been noncommittal about his $16.7 million player option for next season, and if he opts out, Milwaukee makes sense as a possible destination. The Bucks have cap space to work with, Lopez and Jason Kidd worked well together in Brooklyn and the franchise needs a center after the departure of Larry Sanders. Fear the Deer.
May 11 - 12:44 PM

Brook Lopez, who has a $16.7 million player option for next season, is noncommittal about his future with the Nets.

"I like being here," he said. "I absolutely enjoyed my time with the Nets. It's been good for me." Earlier this season, the thought of Lopez opting out and leaving nearly $17 million on the table was unfathomable. Now? It's expected Lopez will opt out and command a sizable multi-year deal. For what it's worth, Lopez spoke of the Nets in the past tense. If he does hit free agency, Lopez will be a fascinating case to watch unfold. The Nets would have an incredibly tough time replacing Lopez if he walks out of Brooklyn.

May 4 - 10:03 AM

The Nets reportedly intend to retain Brook Lopez even if he declines his $16.7 million player option for the 2015-16 season.

Few players boosted their stock as a free agent more than Lopez this season -- coming off major reconstructive foot surgery, he played in 72 games and in the playoffs he averaged 20.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks. He finished the year with top-30 fantasy value but projects as a high-risk, high-reward pick on draft day due to his injury history.
May 2 - 9:14 AM

Brook Lopez struggled against the Hawks on Wednesday with 15 points, three rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 39 minutes.

Maybe he just ran out of gas because he just looked like a different player late. His defense was really bad and he forced several shots today. Lopez did see his scoring increase in every game during this series up until now. He'll look for a better game in Game 6 on Friday.
Apr 29 - 9:43 PM

Several NBA executives think Brook Lopez will be back with the Nets next season.

Lopez can opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent this summer by declining his $16.7 million option, but rival executives think the Nets will make every effort to retain him if that happens. "If he leaves, then they are starting all over again," an NBA executive said. "He has proven he is healthy. There’s no question he’s always been a good basketball player. The question was ‘Can he come back from the injury?’ He’s shown he can, especially the last two months." Lopez will have plenty of suitors if he opts out of the last year of his contract, but the Nets can offer him the largest contract, so there's a good chance we see Bro-Lo back in Brooklyn net season.
Apr 28 - 9:07 AM

Brook Lopez dominated against the Hawks on Monday with 26 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks in 43 minutes.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and is using his size extremely well on offense in this series. Lopez continues to be a force in the postseason with 20 points in nine out of his 11 postseason games (3-of-4 this year). He's been outstanding since the break and the Nets will have at least one more game at home with the series tied.
Apr 27 - 10:25 PM

Brook Lopez controlled the paint during a 91-83 Game 3 win over the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 22 points with 13 boards and two blocks in 42 minutes.

He was a little more traditional with his scoring and played in the post more than in the first two games. After only posting a usage rate of just 11.8 in Game 1, he's basically doubled it to 23.3 in the last two games. If the Nets are going to make this a six- or seven-game series, there will need to be more 20-10 games from Bro-Lo.
