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.

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.
Apr 25 - 6:19 PM

Brook Lopez made 8-of-15 from the field against the Hawks on Wednesday during a Game 2 loss, scoring 20 points with seven rebounds and three blocks.

At least he had more shots than his seven from Game 1. The Nets really forced the ball into the post quite a bit and some credit should go to the Hawks for making it tougher on him. He'll need a massive game on Saturday in Game 3.
Apr 22 - 10:01 PM

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 17 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in 36 minutes on Sunday, hitting 6-of-7 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws.

BroLo averaged 19.7 points and 9.2 rebounds after the All-Star break and he'll need to have a huge series for Brooklyn to hang with the top-seeded Hawks. His offense was even more critical tonight with backup center Mason Plumlee going scoreless without any field goal attempts in 12 minutes.
Apr 19 - 8:28 PM

Brook Lopez played well in a win over the Magic on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with seven boards, one assist, four steals and three blocks.

The Nets won themselves the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference tonight, but they don't have time to celebrate as they will be taking on the Hawks in the first round on Sunday. Joe Johnson also did his part with 16 points, seven boards, six assists and two 3-pointers, while Thaddeus Young contributed 16 points, nine boards, three assists, two steals and one block.
Apr 16 - 1:01 AM

Brook Lopez was held in check vs. the Bucks, finishing Sunday's road loss with 12 points (3-of-8 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), 10 rebounds, two steals and one block.

He only turned the ball over once in 31 minutes and this isn't a total wash for Lopez's fantasy owners. The Bucks have been very stingy against opposing centers over their past 10 games, allowing a mere 16.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting (third-lowest in the NBA), so it's not shocking to see BroLo struggle. He gets another tough matchup vs. Chicago on Monday.
Apr 12 - 5:58 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the Wizards during an easy 117-80 victory.

He just keeps putting up big lines. In his last 13 games, Lopez averaged 26.2 points, 9.6 boards, 0.9 assists, 2.4 blocks and 0.6 steals. Lopez and the Nets are on the brink of clinching a postseason berth and have a big game in Milwaukee on Sunday.
Apr 10 - 11:00 PM

Brook Lopez hit 8-of-17 shots and 10-of-10 free throws for 26 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

Bro-Lo has been on a tear, averaging 23.4 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over his last five games, and might be carrying fantasy teams right now. Keep running him out there as long as he's playing for the Nets. Brooklyn is fighting for a spot in the postseason, so there's a good chance Bro-Lo keeps it going through the end of the season.
Apr 8 - 11:11 PM

Brook Lopez continued his magnificent run on the stat sheet during a 106-96 win over the Blazers on Monday, scoring 32 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

The Nets have gone 8-1 in their last nine games and have won five straight at home, so they're suddenly starting to look like a playoff team at the right time. As for Brook, he has six 30-point games in his last 11 games and only Russell Westbrook and James Harden have more 30-point games since Mar. 1. After he looked shot in the 2014 part of this season, Lopez is earning himself some serious money this offseason.
Apr 6 - 9:50 PM

Brook Lopez scored 30 points with 17 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 44 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He's been one of the most productive players since the break and is a big reason why the Nets are sitting in the seven spot. It's hard to imagine Lopez even logging 44 minutes and he didn't looked winded tonight either. His rebounds are also way up since Thaddeus Young arrived, which is probably even a bigger surprise than the high minute total. If you bought low just before the All-Star break, you are probably doing quite well in fantasy.
