Brook Lopez has reportedly been traded to the Lakers in exchange for D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov.
Wow. This is the first major deal orchestrated by Lakers' new GM Rob Pelinka, and it's a move that will help open cap space in 2018 to try and bring on another star player. If the Lakers aren't able to swing a deal for Paul George this summer, Lopez will be the clear-cut No. 1 option on offense there, and his value should improve somewhat as he won't be playing for a team that is constantly resting their guys. Ivica Zubac will be confined to limited minutes behind Lopez, so his value takes a hit with BroLo's arrival, and LA sending away Russell could hint that they are leaning towards taking Lonzo Ball No. 2 overall.

Brook Lopez said he's excited about the Nets future and is "all in."

Lopez has been rumored in trade talks constantly over the last couple of years, and his name will likely be bandied about again this offseason. However, Lopez says he's encouraged by the direction of the franchise and is committed to his teammates. "Moving forward, I’m just all in, trying to do all I can to help my team be successful," said Lopez. "We’ve got a great group of guys who really have that team-first attitude and we really believe that we can do something special as long as we put the effort out and we put the work in."

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson had nothing but praise for Brook Lopez at his final press conference of the season on Monday.

Atkinson called Lopez "one of the elite centers in the league" and that he was proud of the way he conditioned and adapted his game to Brooklyn's new system. Lopez is entering the final year of his contract and will surely be the subject of numerous trade rumors all the way up to the deadline in February of 2018, but the Nets haven't given any indication that they want to move on from their franchise center. He averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 boards, 1.8 triples and 1.7 blocks, and his ADP would likely go up if the Nets look like they will be more competitive next season.
Apr 17 - 12:11 PM

Brook Lopez (rest), Jeremy Lin (rest) and Trevor Booker (rest) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

It's surprising that it took this long for the Nets to shut everyone down, but it looks like Brooklyn will enter Wednesday's regular-season finale with just nine available players. Justin Hamilton should see heavy minutes with Lopez and Booker unavailable, and the point guard minutes will be split up between Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie. Lopez made it through 75 games this season, and he'll end his year with averages of 20.5 points, 1.8 triples, 5.4 boards and 1.7 blocks per contest.

Brook Lopez scored 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting in a loss to Boston on Monday.

Lopez added seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one triple, but he also made a bit of history tonight -- he passed Buck Williams and became the all-time leading scorer in Nets history with 10,444 total points. With just six missed games on the season and only one to go, Lopez has been a joy to own this season and avoiding a shut-down was huge for his value.

Apr 10 - 10:28 PM

Brook Lopez struggled on Thursday with 10 points, five rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes of action vs. Orlando.

BroLo was 1-of-6 from the field with four turnovers at halftime, and he didn't have a single steal or block tonight. The nine-year veteran has been far better than owners could have expected on draft day, missing just six games this season while avoiding a shut-down in the most critical stage of most fantasy leagues.
Apr 6 - 10:54 PM

Brook Lopez scored 16 points on 4-of-5 shooting in a 141-118 win over the 76ers on Tuesday.

The Nets scored 81 points in the first half which tied a franchise record, and they now have their first three-game winning streak of the season. They have absolutely nothing to play for, but it didn't look like it tonight. Lopez added four rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two triples in 21 minutes, and he hit all four of his free throws. With four games remaining this season, it looks like Nets are going to keep riding their franchise center as opposed to shutting him down.
Apr 4 - 9:47 PM

Brook Lopez powered the Nets to a home win vs. Atlanta on Sunday with 29 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists, five blocks and two steals.

Brooklyn was playing the second half of a back-to-back set, following Saturday's win vs. the Magic, yet Lopez still logged 31 minutes tonight. He shot 12-of-21 from the field and continues to post terrific lines at a point in the season when most owners assumed he'd be resting. It looks like the Nets will ride their big man to the bitter end.
Apr 2 - 9:08 PM

Brook Lopez scored 30 points during a 121-111 win over the Magic on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Score one for the birthday fantasy narrative as he topped his age on his 29th birthday. Lopez's Nets have actually been a winning team over their last seven, winning four of those games in that span. In other news, coach Kenny Atkinson said he is not going to shut down his starters the rest of the way. This is wonderful news for fantasy owners after Lopez and Thaddeus Young were shut down to finish last season. Lopez's minutes likely will be just around 30, but he's still shaping up to flirt with early-round value the rest of the way.
Apr 1 - 9:15 PM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he won't shut down the Nets starters.

He wants the team to finish strong, and it's not like they have their draft pick anyway. There is still a chance that the veterans are managed, but Lopez's fantasy owners look like they'll be playing with house money the rest of the way.
Apr 1 - 5:03 PM

Brook Lopez made 4-of-17 from the field for 11 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday.

His 49.6 March field goal percentage was his best full month this year, but Lopez couldn't find his jumper for the first three quarters to drop him on the entire month. He also hit at least 2.0 treys per game this month, which is the second time he's accomplished that feat in a full month this season. While the Nets haven't been resting Lopez in back-to-back sets lately, his fantasy owners will want to check back on Saturday to make sure he's a go.
Mar 30 - 10:04 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.

The 76ers had no answer for him as both Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long got into some foul trouble. Lopez added nine rebounds, six assists, two blocks and three triples in 31 minutes, and his owners are fortunate that there hasn't been any mention of a possible shut-down. Keep rolling him out there.
Mar 28 - 10:39 PM

Brook Lopez played 22 minutes with six points, seven rebounds and two assists against the Wizards on Friday.

This game was a blowout, so the Nets didn't need to play their vet too much in this game. Somewhat surprisingly, Lopez hasn't been "rested" since Jan. 27 -- he was out on Mar. 10 due to an ankle injury. Lopez is still likely to get rest at some point, but his owners have to be happy he's still playing in late March.
Mar 24 - 9:49 PM

Brook Lopez scored 19 points and grabbed six boards in the Nets blowout victory over the Suns on Thursday night.

Brooklyn demolished Phoenix, 126-98. As a result, Lopez played only 25 minutes. He was 7-of-14 from the floor and chipped in one 3-pointer and a block. This is the first time BroLo has scored fewer than 20 points since Mar. 8. He came into Tuesday night averaging 25.5 points and 3.0 treys per game over his last six contests.
Mar 23 - 10:06 PM

Brook Lopez hit 13-of-24 shots, including the game-winning jumper at the buzzer, and three more 3-pointers for 29 points, seven rebounds and one assist in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Pistons.

Bro-Lo came through in a meaningless game for the Nets, while the Pistons dropped to 1.0 games behind the Heat for the final playoff spot in the East. Lopez passed Mike Gminski for No. 2 on the Nets' games-played list with 551 and now only trails Buck Williams for the top spot. Williams is also the Nets' career points leader, and Lopez also sits behind him in that category.
