Brook Lopez scored 35 points against the Raptors during a 127-122 overtime loss on Friday with 12 rebounds, three steals and three blocks in 41 minutes.
Jarrett Jack and Lopez were the first Nets teammates to score at least 35 points since 1981 (Mike Newline and Cliff T. Robinson). Obviously Lopez is healthy right now and the Nets are probably going to be asking a little more in a trade following this gem. He's a must-start player now, but there are a lot of things that could go wrong. If you can sell high, do it. Jan 30 - 10:49 PM

Brook Lopez had 18 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

He's back to coming off the bench with Kevin Garnett back in action, but looked pretty good. Bro-Lo had scored a total of 10 points with six rebounds over his previous two games, so tonight's line was a huge improvement. And if you fully trust him after this one, we've got some swamp land in Florida you might be interested in. Having said that, he is still worth owning and should come closer to tonight's line on most nights, as opposed to the pair of duds he posted previously.

Pat Riley strongly denied a rumor that the Heat have interest in a Brook Lopez trade.

It's hard to see how a deal between the two sides was ever going to line up. Miami is known to be prioritizing cap flexibility, and Riley won't blow it on an oft-injured center who would steal playing time from the emerging Hassan Whiteside. As has been the case with most Lopez rumors to this point, this one appears to be filled with hot air.

Brook Lopez scored four points with one rebound and one block in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

Yeah, that's 7'0 Brook Lopez turning in a total rebounding rate of 2.4 percent tonight. Awful game aside, Lopez was having a good month before this one, averaging 15.9 points, 7.1 boards, 2.0 blocks and 0.6 steals. He's still a must-start player while he's active for the Nets.

Brook Lopez will start in place of Kevin Garnett (rest) on Thursday against the Clippers.

Last season, Lopez and Mason Plumlee barely played next to each other, but now it's becoming a common occurrence. The big man is coming off a 22-point, six-block game on Wednesday and should be in all lineups tonight. Hopefully, Plumlee can avoid foul trouble, which kept him to just 11 minutes on Wednesday.
Jan 22 - 9:20 PM

Brook Lopez blocked a season-high six shots against the Kings on Wednesday, adding 22 points with six rebounds, three assists and one steal.

He's been great in his last three, averaging 21.0 points, 4.7 boards, 1.3 assists and 2.7 blocks on 50.0 percent from the field and 84.0 percent from the line in 29.1 minutes. Lopez has been the focal point while he's been out there in that stretch, posting a usage rate of 29.0 He is safe to start in all leagues and is a sell-high player.

Brook Lopez doesn't seem too concerned about his name popping up in trade rumors in recently.

"I’ve been on the block for, like, six-and-a-half years now," Lopez said. "So it’s no big deal." Well, at least he is honest. Lopez has been one of the most heavily criticized big men in the NBA and there is no question that the Nets have been open to potentially trading him. He responded by scoring 26 points in 23 minutes in a crucial win over the Wizards on Friday, so maybe this trade talk will light a fire under him. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely so owners will want to stay tuned.
Jan 17 - 9:25 AM

Brook Lopez was extremely active on the offensive side in his 23 minutes, scoring 26 points with three rebounds, two steals and two blocks against the Wizards.

This will certainly give the Nets some leverage in a trade. It would appear the team is past the point of no return with Lopez, so he'll likely be dealt at some point. That said, he was already playing extremely well over his last 10 games even before this gem, averaging 15.2 points, 7.5 boards and 1.6 blocks on 54.5 percent from the field. He should be starting in all leagues even though a trade will likely hurt his value slightly.
Jan 16 - 9:41 PM

Brook Lopez will come off the bench against the Wizards.

The trade rumors are swirling all over the place and the Nets are very likely to limit his minutes considering how often he is hurt. Lopez could put up a nice line, but there is a lot of risk in using him.

The Nets have reportedly decided to not move on the reported deal that would send Brook Lopez to OKC in exchange for Kendrick Perkins and Jeremy Lamb.

The Nets reportedly have not received an offer they like, and they are holding off on a trade for the time being. The Rockets have also been mentioned as a team interested in acquiring Lopez, but that's a strange fit, and it's not clear exactly what Houston would be offering. However, it seems like only a matter of time until Lopez is with a new team, and we'll continue to monitor this situation closely.

The Nets unwillingness to take on Lance Stephenson has Brooklyn focused on dealing directly with OKC for Brook Lopez, according to sources of Yahoo! Sports.

If Brooklyn is to deal directly with OKC, it's looking like the best assets they could garner would be Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb, and Grant Jerrett... not great. While Brook Lopez certainly has some health concerns, it wouldn't be a great move for Brooklyn to essentially move him in a salary dump. However, this is the same organization that gave up three first-round picks for a one-year rental of Paul Pierce and an aging Kevin Garnett, so questionable decision making isn't anything new.

The Nets are reportedly holding up the three-team deal that would land Brook Lopez in OKC, as they would like to change some players in the deal.

The deal that has been discussed involves sending Brook Lopez to OKC in exchange for Kendrick Perkins and Lance Stephenson, with Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb going to Charlotte. The biggest hurdle in the reported trade is the Nets' willingness to bring on Stephenson, and the trade is being called "dead" for now. However, the Nets are said to be looking to deal Lopez by the weekend, so the "dead" talk can be taken with a grain of salt. Stay tuned.

The Nets, Hornets and Thunder are discussing a three-way trade, sending Brook Lopez to Oklahoma City, Lance Stephenson to Brooklyn, and Jeremy Lamb and Jarrett Jack to Charlotte, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Interesting. Lopez has a $16.7 million player option next season, which would give the Thunder little cap space for next season even with Kendrick Perkins coming off the books. Basically, OKC is going with the anti-James Harden logic and seem to be going for it this year. The Thunder could use some more front-court depth with Steven Adams losing some momentum from his hot start and Perkins playing like Perkins. Lopez would lose some fantasy value in OKC. Besides Mason Plumlee adding to his must-own status, there are not too many fantasy implications.

The Nets have "accelerated trade discussions for Brook Lopez with the intention of moving him soon," according to Yahoo! Sports.

Additionally, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports that the Nuggets are also heavily involved for Lopez to help out rookie Jusuf Nurkic. The rumor mill picked up on Wednesday and now it sounds even more likely that Lopez is dealt. Miami is considered as the frontrunner, which is interesting because today is the first day Chris Andersen is eligible to be traded. If Lopez is headed to Miami, everyone's favorite young Eastern Conference big man, Hassan Whiteside, would be in jeopardy of losing minutes. Charlotte could also grab Lopez in a trade for Lance Stephenson, which seems like a strange fit with Al Jefferson. Mason Plumlee should be owned everywhere while guys like Cory Jefferson and Mirza Teletovic would also benefit.
Jan 15 - 7:22 PM

Brook Lopez started in place of Kevin Garnett (suspension) and hit 5-of-9 shots for 11 points, four rebounds and zero blocks in 27 minutes.

This line is indicative of why Mason Plumlee has taken his job. The Nets would like to trade Bro-Lo, and keep him healthy if they can't pull that off. Plumlee is the big man you want to own in Brooklyn until further notice.
