Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said that Jeremy Lin should be able to help Brook Lopez.
"I definitely think he can help Brook, and Brook can help him," Atkinson said. "That’s a pretty big target. It’s a guy who can score in the pick-and-roll, and it’s a guy that can make a pass. It’s a nice combination, and relieve a little bit of that [pressure]. Brook was in a lot of [isolation] situations where he had to create his own." Lopez was fourth in the NBA in points scored as the roll man in the pick-and-roll last season, and Atkinson sounds confident that Lin will make Lopez even deadlier on the offensive end.

Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson said that the Nets aren't going to trade Brook Lopez.

"No. Absolutely not," Atkinson said. "Have not talked about it." Take this quote with a grain of salt because Atkinson called Thaddeus Young a building block two weeks ago and now he's an Indiana Pacer. Atkinson did say that he wants Lopez to be a leader for his team, but the reality is that Lopez is arguably the best trade chip Brooklyn has and it's clear that they aren't close to competing for a playoff spot.

In an interview with Chris Mannix of NBC Sports, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said that Brook Lopez is "absolutely" a building block for Brooklyn.

"He's already an excellent player," Atkinson said. "Can we get him to another level. Can we help him get to another level. But I'm a huge fan. I think he plays the game the right way. I think he's smart. It's a fast paced game right now in the NBA, but I look at Andrew Bogut in Golden State. They play pretty fast and he does alright in the offense. So, I think there's a place for Brook in this new NBA." Lopez averaged 20.6 points, 7.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.7 blocks and 0.8 steals this season, returning top 25-value in standard leagues. If this quote is any indication, Atkinson has big plans for Lopez moving forward.

Nets GM Sean Marks said he is not looking to trade Brook Lopez or Thaddeus Young.

"I'm certainly not looking to trade them," Marks said of Lopez and Young. "But again, you have to be fluid. You never know what will come your way. I hope they are a part of us. ... I have to maximize their talent and build around them. We have to wait and see." Brooklyn doesn't have many assets and won't even control their own first-round pick until 2019, so it's still possible that the Nets gauge the value of Lopez and Young if they have the chance to get picks or promising young players to build around.

Sean Marks has assured Brook Lopez that he will be a building block for the franchise, and not a trade chip.

"He has talked to me, and we both definitely want to be here and see things happen here and help the team grow going forward," said Lopez. While Lopez will sit out the Nets final six games of the season for rest purposes, the 2015-16 season will mark Lopez' second consecutive year of sustained health after a brutal injury plagued three-year stretch. He'll make for a fine early-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.
Apr 6 - 12:38 PM

Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young will be shut down for the remainder of the season.

Wow. The Nets have six games left in the season and Lopez is healthy, but they will be evaluating other options down the stretch including Thomas Robinson, Henry Sims, Chris McCullough and Willie Reed. Lopez is now safe to drop outside of dynasty leagues, while Robinson has just become a must-own player after posting three straight double-doubles.
Apr 3 - 11:20 AM

Brook Lopez scored 16 points with eight rebounds, four assists and one block in 30 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He got the night off on Thursday for rest. The Lopez brothers were 6-6 in their previous matchups, but Brook is now on the short end. This was also on their birthday for a little added narrative. The Nets have a road game in a back-to-back set on Apr. 10, so expect Lopez to get a night off there, too.
Apr 1 - 9:49 PM

Brook Lopez is in the starting lineup vs. the Knicks on Friday.

He rested on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers, but he isn't going to miss out on the chance to play against his brother. Make sure he's in all active lineups, while Henry Sims will move to the bench and can be left on the wire.
Apr 1 - 6:14 PM

Brook Lopez is expected to return on Friday against the Knicks.

He got the night off on Thursday against the Cavs. The Nets official pre-game report focused on him playing against his brother, so he should be good to go. Get Lopez back into your lineups.

Brook Lopez (rest) will not play on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

This is first night of a back-to-back set, so Lopez should be ready to roll for Friday's game vs. the Knicks. With nothing left to play for, the Nets could give Lopez another maintenance day or two down the stretch. Willie Reed and Henry Sims could both see more minutes, or the Nets could go with the hot hand and give Thomas Robinson a shot at center. When asked about the lineup, coach Tony Brown said he would keep rotating it for evaluation purposes.
Mar 31 - 11:09 AM

Brook Lopez played just 15 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for five points, three rebounds and four turnovers in Tuesday's ugly loss to the Magic.

The good news is that he's not hurt, but the bad news is that Bro-Lo is up there with several other vets on shutdown watch, as the Nets have nothing to play for. The tank is on and if you own Bro-Lo, you just have to hope that this wasn't the beginning of the end. At least we can blame the ridiculous 139-105 score for the low minutes, at least for now.
Mar 29 - 10:40 PM

Brook Lopez and Bojan Bogdanovic were benched to start the second half of Tuesday's game vs. the Magic.

Sean Kilpatrick and Henry Sims started the second half. The Nets are getting blown out and this is the second night of a back-to-back set, so Lopez's night could be over.
Mar 29 - 8:30 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points against the Heat on Monday with four rebounds and one block in 35 minutes.

He's had some nice success against the Heat with three 25-point games against them this year. The Nets do have a road game on Tuesday, so there is a chance Lopez gets a night off. The last time the Nets had a road-road back-to-back, Lopez sat out. His owners will want to make sure he's good to go.
Mar 28 - 9:58 PM

Brook Lopez scored 23 points in a 120-110 win over the Pacers on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

After beating the Cavs on Thursday, the Nets just knocked off two teams on track for the postseason and Lopez is the main reason why. Looking ahead, the Nets have five games this upcoming week, but chances are Lopez will be missing one of them. They have two road-road back-to-backs (Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday) before they come home on Sunday. Still, Lopez should still be in all lineups even if he gets just three games.
Mar 26 - 9:31 PM

Brook Lopez scored 22 points during a surprising 104-95 win over the Cavs on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Celtics fans probably aren't happy about this win for the Nets because Boston has Brooklyn's first-round pick. As for Lopez, his minutes are likely going to decrease and he almost certainly will be rested in one of his five games next week. Lopez also passed Vince Carter tonight for No. 2 on the Nets' all-time scoring list.
