Brook Lopez

  1. Are NBA teams giving out “foolish” contracts? Yes. Lockout couldn’t stop that.

    Jul 16, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    NBA fans are shaking their heads when they see Jeremy Lin about to get $25 million over three years. Or when they see Brook Lopez getting a max contract. Or JaVale McGee not signing a $50 million deal while seeking more. Or countless more deals since the start of free agency. Fans thinking pretty much…

  2. After everything, Kris Humphries likely ends up with Brooklyn

    Jul 14, 2012, 4:01 PM EST

    Kris Humphries

    He might have gone to Orlando. Then there were talks with Cleveland to facilitate a bigger trade with Orlando. Charlotte reached out and wanted to talk deal. But after a pretty crazy couple of weeks, it looks like Kris Humphries will be back with the Nets next season, reports Howard Beck of the New York…

  3. Report: Nuggets offer JaVale McGee five years, $50 million

    Jul 13, 2012, 10:09 AM EST

    JaVale McGee

    Athletic big men in the NBA get paid. Actually, the better way to phrase that is NBA big men get over paid. It’s simple supply and demand, there just aren’t many of them. Enter JaVale McGee. Denver traded for McGee (from Washington) in the middle of last season and got 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds…

  4. Winderman: Max contracts and amnesty, have the owners learned anything?

    Jul 12, 2012, 7:26 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    With Elton Brand about to come off the market and Luis Scola about to go on the market, we’re reminded of why there is an NBA amnesty process in the first place: because of large-scale contracts that were shortsighted. And then we have Brook Lopez, Roy Hibbert and Eric Gordon getting maximum-scale offers this summer…

  5. Report: Moving on from Howard deal, Nets still shopping Brooks

    Jul 12, 2012, 9:49 AM EST

    MarShon Brooks, Shannon Brown

    Anyone surprised that the Nets’ house of cards trade efforts to land Dwight Howard fell apart wasn’t watching closely the past year. Yes, it got closer this time around, but it took two other teams and 11 players — many on sign-and-trade deals — all to agree just to get it that close. It was…

  6. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

  7. Reports: Nets reach deal with Brook Lopez

    Jul 11, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    Brook Lopez is going to be the starting center opening up the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, not playing in Orlando next fall. But don’t think the Nets chasing of Dwight Howard is over just yet. The Nets have reached an agreement with Brook Lopez, according to multiple reports (Stephen Bondy of the New York Daily…

  8. Report: Magic tell Dwight Howard they are suspending trade efforts

    Jul 11, 2012, 3:58 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    And once again, the Orlando Magic have called a time out. The Magic have told Dwight Howard that they have suspended trade talks right now, reports Jarrod Rudolph of Real GM, who is well connected in Orlando. Sources: Orlando Magic have informed Dwight Howard that they are suspending trade talks in favor of finding next…

  9. Report: Nets move back to front of line for Dwight Howard trade

    Jul 11, 2012, 1:55 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    At some point the roulette wheel will stop spinning, the ball will stop bouncing around and find it’s slot, and Dwight Howard is going to get traded. Promise. It’s going to happen someday. While it feels close, like it could happen today, we’re not there yet. For now, the Nets have moved back to the…

  10. It’s decision time in Brooklyn — do they re-sign Lopez now?

    Jul 11, 2012, 10:22 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    If the Dwight Howard trade comes down in the next 24 to 48 hours it is because of this — everybody had to move on with their “Plan B” if Howard wasn’t coming. Nowhere is that more evident than Brooklyn. The Nets have been Howard’s preferred destination and the franchise has spent the better part…

  11. It’s official: Deron Williams signs with Nets, is very rich

    Jul 11, 2012, 7:45 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams will say this wasn’t about the money, and to a degree that is true — he would have made a lot of money wherever he chose to play. So really, him deciding to stay with the Brooklyn Nets was about the franchise and where he wanted to play. But it is still a…

  12. Dwight Howard latest: Three-team deal with Bynum to Rockets in play

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:03 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have not been able to swing a Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum deal. The Rockets have not been able to convince Orlando to trade them Howard for picks and a few players. So, how about a three way deal. It’s being discussed, reports Eric Pincus at Hoopsworld (and confirmed by Marc Stein at…

  13. Nets now negotiating new deal with Lopez. Just in case.

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    The Brooklyn Nets may be left without Dwight Howard. It’s in flux. Which is putting it very kindly. What the Nets don’t want is to be left with nothing. So they have picked up the pace in talks with their own free agents — Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries — reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  14. Dwight Howard trade talks stall with Cleveland out as third team

    Jul 10, 2012, 2:19 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    If Dwight Howard is going to be a Brooklyn Net anytime soon, either Magic and Nets are going to have to find another team to facilitate this or they are going to have to figure out a two-team trade. Something they have been unable to do for a year. Talks are still going on to…

  15. Details of potential Dwight Howard trade leaking. Magic get Lopez, picks.

    Jul 9, 2012, 4:54 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    UPDATE 4:54 pm: The Clippers may be the fourth team in the deal, reports both Ken Berger at CBSSports.com and Chad Ford at ESPN. The Clippers would send a first round pick to the Nets for MarShon Brooks, then the Nets would ship that pick to the Magic as part of the deal. This appears…

  16. Bynum interested in Mavs, Rockets if he leaves Lakers

    Jul 9, 2012, 9:59 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Seven

    The key reason Dwight Howard is likely not going to the Lakers is Andrew Bynum. Not that the Magic don’t want him — he’s certainly better than Brook Lopez and the T.G.I.Fridays sampler platter that they likely get — but that they can’t keep him. Just like Howard, Bynum is a free agent next summer.…

  17. Dwight Howard trade rumors heating up; maybe to Nets in three-team deal

    Jul 8, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    The Magic nearing a deal to ship out Ryan Anderson signals one thing — they are entering rebuilding mode, no joke, no holdovers. Which means Dwight Howard rumors are picking up steam, fast. How much steam depends on who you ask — some sources sugest the deal could be done as soon as Monday, but there…

  18. Report: Hornets in talks for sign-and-trade for Ryan Anderson

    Jul 8, 2012, 3:07 PM EST

    Ryan Anderson

    This is unexpected. Yahoo Sports reports that restricted free agent Ryan Anderson will not re-sign with the Magic and will be moved in a sign-and-trade. Shortly thereafter, the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Hornets are in talks with the Magic for a sign-and-trade of the stretch four. The news comes as a shocker with huge…

  19. Camby postpones Heat visit, will meet with Knicks, as Nets come in as dark horse

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    Remember what we told you about Marcus Camby and the Heat and visiting and maybe a sign-and-trade? Yeah, chill on that. From the Miami Herald: Free agent center Marcus Camby’s scheduled Saturday visit to South Florida to meet with the Heat was postponed Saturday morning because the Heat no longer has its $3.1 million mid…

  20. Nets push Teletović to take mini mid-level so Howard, other doors open up

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:47 PM EST

    brooklyn-nets-logo-0

    The Nets like to make things hard on themselves. But they apparently have just cleared one more hurdle to making the very difficult trade to bring Dwight Howard to Brooklyn a little more possible. They may have reached a deal to get Mirza Teletović to take a smaller offer than they verbally agreed to, which…

  21. The Inbounds: Deron Williams and the meaning of Brooklyn cool

    Jul 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    Let’s start here: Deron Williams did not decide to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets because it was his best chance to win an NBA title. And that’s OK. Williams made a lot of comments about how winning a title would dictate his decision. But the mere fact that he limited his options to Brooklyn and…

  22. Williams, bold moves make Nets a fun team… for now

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:19 AM EST

    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    The Brooklyn Nets are a much better team right now than they were 72 hours ago. They will walk onto the court at the Barclays Center with an entertaining lineup, a team with offensive firepower, something you couldn’t really say about the squad last seen in New Jersey (they move to Brooklyn this fall). They…

  23. Deron Williams to stay with Nets, lead them into Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 7:46 PM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    No. Sleep. ‘Till Brooklyn. For Deron Williams. The most coveted free agent of this summer tweeted out late Tuesday that he had made a very tough decision — with a picture of the Brooklyn Nets new logo attached to the tweet. The two sides agreed to a five-year, $98 million deal (he cannot actually sign…

  24. Dwight Howard to Nets: It can happen, but is it likely?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic are talking to the New Jersey Nets about a possible Dwight Howard deal. And there are a few ways — complex ways — that a deal could come together. But if you think it’s a foregone conclusion — and I’m looking at you, Nets fans — you should check out what Ken…

  25. Report: Magic, Nets in talks to send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:25 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Twenty-four hours ago it looked like the Nets were moving on from Dwight Howard, but things change fast in free agency. I say change fast because a version of this deal wasn’t good enough for Orlando at last year’s trade deadline and even recently we heard the sides were far apart, but suddenly everything has…
