"Like I said before, I’m not looking for any restrictions," Lopez told ESPN New York and Newsday Friday. "I’m confident I’m gonna be able to go out there and be better than I’ve ever been.

Brook Lopez was at the Barclays Center on Wednesday, no, not practicing with the Nets, but helping sponsor a Coca-Cola event promoting healthy lifestyles.

King: No restrictions placed on Lopez

Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King said during a radio interview Monday that there is currently no plan in place to put any restrictions on center Brook Lopez this season. However, King said team brass will meet with Lopez and doctors before determining how to proceed moving forward. Lopez had recently been cleared to resume basketball activities as he continues to rehab from foot and ankle surgery. “We will sit down with him and the doctors and come up with a plan,” King said during an interview on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

Position analysis: Center

Now that free agency has died down, we're taking a look at where the Nets currently stand position-by-position. Today, we look at center. CENTER New additions: None Returning/on roster: C Brook Lopez, PF/C Kevin Garnett, PF/C Mason Plumlee Gone: PF/C Andray Blatche (remains unsigned), C Jason Collins (remains unsigned) The starter: Lopez. This one is easy. The wild card: Plumlee. Again, we don’t know how Lopez is going to play coming off foot/ankle surgery.

Brook Lopez and brother Robin visit US Embassy, Moscow, then run clinic in Perm

Brook Lopez and brother Robin continued their Russian adventure Sunday by visiting the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and then traveling out to the Ural Mountains to open a newly refurbished gym --and run a youth clinic-- in Perm. The visit to the embassy had the 7-foot twins run a clinic for families of embassy staffers and watch the staffers pick-up game. Did it constitute scouting ... or spying. The #Lopez brothers taught some basketball skills and watched the weekly pickup basketball game by embassy staffers. pic.twitter.com/oIqdGJpFgc — Посольство США в РФ (@USEmbRu) August...
