Kenny Atkinson: Brooklyn Nets "absolutely" not interested in trading Brook Lopez

In addition to welcoming Isaiah Whitehead (back) to Brooklyn, Kenny Atkinson talked about a number of things Tuesday, but his most vigorous comment was in response to a question about Brook Lopez's future... Coach Kenny Atkinson was also insistent that the Nets aren't trading Brook Lopez: "No. Absolutely not. Have not talked about it." — Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) June 28, 2016 The reason for the question is obvious. At his press conference, Atkinson said both Lopez and Thaddeus Young were building blocks for the team and he called Young "my guy." Two weeks later, Young was gone,...

What are the Brooklyn Nets assets heading into the Draft?

With word that the Nets are shopping Thaddeus Young for a first round pick comes the question what else do they have to offer. Here's a quick primer... Players: --Brook Lopez, a 20/8 center who's just turned 28 and is owed $44 million over next two seasons (with injury protection). He also has a 15% trade kicker; --Thaddeus Young, a 15/9 forward who's just turned 28 and is owed a guaranteed $25 million over next two years with a player option for $13.7 million in the third year; --Jarrett Jack, an injured 13/7 point guard who's about to turn 33 and is owed $6.3 million of which only...

As trade winds blow, speculation becomes a storm

There were three point guards traded Wednesday but none to the Nets. Derrick Rose went from Chicago to New York. George Hill went from Indiana to Utah. Jeff Teague went from Atlanta to Indiana. There was little news on the Nets. Chad Ford said the Nets are so bereft of assets he hasn't heard of one trade involving Brooklyn. And Mike Scotto tweeted the the Nets are interested in Joakim Noah ... who plays the same position as "building blocks" Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young. Does that signal the Nets plan on trading either to move up? Beats us. The Knick trade for Rose could have implications...

Brook Lopez riding Tron Lightcycles at Disneyland... in Shanghai!

Out of the six players guaranteed to come back next season, we have a decent idea of what some of them have been up to. Guys like Chris McCullough, Sean Kilpatrick and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson have all spent a good portion of their time in the gym at the HSS Center in Brooklyn. Thaddeus Young has been down in Memphis running basketball camps and keeping intact with his AAU travel team known as Team Thad. And Bojan Bogdanovic is back home in Croatia training, and more importantly chatting with assistant coach Chris Fleming. But where's Brook Lopez? Since the big fella has no social media...

Did Brook and Robin Lopez pay $30,000 for a "Mary Poppins" jacket?

Why, it's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!  Something quite precocious! That's really the only reaction possible to word from India that Brook Lopez and twin brother Robin purchased the yellow jacket Dick VanDyke wore in "Mary Poppins," part of their growing movie memorabilia collection.  It's not just comic books. The Economic Times reports that the jacket from the 1964 movie was a bit pricey, but remember, these two did sign contracts totalling $110 million last summer. "Brook and I collect movie memorabilia and there are a few costume pieces we have picked up over the years," Robin...
