Brook Lopez will remain in Brooklyn past the trade deadline.
Lopez was a hot name in the rumor-mill leading up to the trade deadline, as usual, but once again the Nets opted to keep him. Brooklyn reportedly wanted two first-round picks, which they scaled back to "a good first-round pick," but even that doesn't seem to have materialized. Lopez isn't in a great spot as a veteran on a cellar-dwelling team, and his owners just have to hope Brooklyn doesn't shut him down. Feb 23 - 3:41 PM

The Nets are looking for "a good first-round pick" for Brook Lopez, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

In other words, they want a pick that is in the teens or better. The Nets were asking for two first-round picks last month, but that price looks to have come down. Lopez is on the books for $22.6 million next year, so that could be a big factor on why teams may be apprehensive. Plus, it doesn't help the Nets that the trade market for centers is fairly strong, so it's not really a seller's market.

The Nets have lowered their asking price on Brook Lopez and are now willing to accept a first and second-round pick, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Nets were initially demanding two first-round picks in exchange for their best player. However, after seeing how little the Kings got in return for DeMarcus Cousins, it appears they have been forced to re-evaluate Lopez's market value. If Lopez were to get traded, his usage rate would likely decline, as he is the focal point of the Nets offense, but a new team would likely play him more than Brooklyn does. Ultimately, we would have to wait and see where he might end up before predicting his future fantasy value.

According to the New York Porst, the Nets are not "actively shopping" Brook Lopez, as they have found other teams are unwilling to meet their asking price.

Brooklyn was willing to trade Lopez if they got two first-round picks in return. However, with DeMarcus Cousins netting relatively little in return for Sacramento, Brooklyn saw that the market had been set. In addition, New Orleans was one of the teams that the Nets were discussing a deal with. Also, the Nets don't own the rights to their first-round pick this year or next, so they have no motivation to dump Lopez simply to secure a higher draft pick. It now seems likely Lopez will remain with the Nets past the trade deadline.

Brook Lopez posted a historic stat line in the Nets loss to Milwaukee on Monday night, as he became the first player in NBA history to make at least six 3-pointers and block eight shots in a game.

Lopez scored 36 points on 12-of-20 shooting, including 6-of-10 from 3-point territory. In addition to the eight blocks, he also added four rebounds, one assist and one steal. The eight blocks tie a career-high. Lopez had made a total of three 3-pointers over the first eight years (487 games) of his NBA career. He enters the All-Star break this season having knocked down 90 treys in 51 games.
Feb 15 - 10:09 PM

Brook Lopez needed 18 shots to score 17 points in Brooklyn 112-103 loss to Memphis on Monday.

Lopez was just 7-of-18 from the floor, including 1-of-5 from 3-point territory. Lopez did dish out a team-high five assists, but grabbed just three rebounds and failed to block a shot. Lopez had scored at least 20 points and hauled down at least five boards in each of the Nets five previous contests, so there is no need for Lopez owners to worry about this relatively disappointing performance.
Feb 13 - 10:51 PM

The Nets' asking price for Brook Lopez is still two first-round picks according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Nets are able to stand firm with this price through the deadline as Lopez is under contract through the 2017-18 season. However, his value would be much higher this season as opposing teams could view him as a one-season rental if they wait until next season. He's going to be a headache to own in Brooklyn with all the maintenance days and the shut-down risk, so a trade wouldn't be a bad thing.

Brook Lopez scored 30 points during a 108-99 loss to the Heat on Friday, adding eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Lopez and Randy Foye with 15 points were the only two Nets with more than 10, so Lopez didn't get much help. This was his fifth 30-point game of the season, and he also scored his 1,000th point of the season to make it his fastest season of his career (49 games). Lopez will still be dealing with trade rumors and could get rest this season.
Feb 10 - 11:18 PM

Brook Lopez said he's used to the trade rumors.

"I haven’t heard anything," Lopez said about a trade. "I’m all right. If it were pressing or something was happening, I’d be aware." The Pelicans were reportedly interested in Lopez as they look for a third reliable big to put in their rotation with Terrence Jones and Anthony Davis. Lopez should still put up numbers when active, but possible rest will be annoying for his fantasy owners.
Feb 8 - 2:38 PM

Brook Lopez scored 20 points with four blocks in Tuesday's 111-107 loss to the Hornets, adding five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 29 minutes.

He shot 8-of-17 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line, but turned the ball over four times. Lopez's name has been all over the rumor mill with the trade deadline approaching and he was linked to the Pelicans on Monday, but he said the rumors don't bother him. "It’s something I’m used to by now," Lopez said. "It wouldn’t be comfortable without it ... I haven’t heard anything. If it were pressing or something was happening, I’d be aware." Lopez added that he hasn't spoken to coach Kenny Atkinson or GM Sean Marks about them. The Nets are reportedly asking for two first-round picks in return for the big man, so they won't just give him away since he's under contract through the 2017-18 season.

Feb 7 - 9:50 PM

The New York Post is reporting that the Nets are asking for two first-round picks in order to deal Brook Lopez.

The Post story states that the Nets "may not view Lopez as off limits, but aren’t actively shopping" him and that Brooklyn would want a lottery pick this year and a first-round pick next year. The Vertical reported on Monday that the Nets and Pelicans have engaged in talks regarding a potential Lopez deal. If Lopez were to get traded, his usage rate would likely decline, as he is the focal point of the Nets offense, but another team may be willing to play him more than Brooklyn does. Overall, his fantasy value likely won't shift dramatically.
Feb 7 - 9:39 AM

The Pelicans have reportedly inquired about the availability of Brook Lopez.

New Orleans wants to add a true center to the roster, so in addition to having "advanced talks" with the 76ers regarding Jahlil Okafor, they're also interested in potentially bringing in Lopez. If one of these trades does come to fruition, the Pelicans will also likely be unloading Alexis Ajinca or Omer Asik, but changing the jersey won't really alter those guys non-existent fantasy values. Lopez could take a minor hit if he winds up in New Orleans, but it wouldn't significantly alter his outlook.

Brook Lopez scored 20 points on 6-of-17 shooting (7-of-8 from the stripe) on Sunday, adding seven boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

Jonas Valanciunas really made Lopez work for everything on the offensive end, but owners can expect a more efficient outing on Tuesday with a much better matchup against the Hornets. He’s been a steady top-40 guy on the season, but with the way Kenny Atkinson has been handling him, it would be quite shocking to not see him shutdown towards the end of the year. Sell high.
Feb 5 - 3:02 PM

Brook Lopez scored 23 points with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes during a 106-97 loss to the Pacers on Friday.

He had some interesting comments about the rotation after the game. "It's hard to adjust," Lopez said. "Not necessarily knowing when your time is going to be." Hmm. As his fantasy owners know, Lopez is getting a lot of rest this season, so maybe all these losses are starting to get to him. We'll see if anything comes of this.
Feb 3 - 11:29 PM

Brook Lopez struggled again on Wednesday with 10 points on 4-of-11 FGs and 2-of-4 FTs, adding six boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 31 minutes vs. the Knicks.

Lopez was just 5-of-17 from the field on Monday, and the Nets need him playing well to have any chance at picking up wins. "I'm very disappointed in myself," Lopez said on Monday. "I hurt our team a lot ... I can't have nights like this." He's been a steady fantasy producer despite the Nets' constant losing, but there's reason to be concerned about his late-season outlook.
