Brandan Wright signs with Memphis, closing door on Phoenix Suns' Robin Lopez trade

When the Phoenix Suns and Robin Lopez were set to part ways in the summer of 2012, turning the starting center spot over to Marcin Gortat, the team executed a sign-and-trade to get Lopez a good salary ($5 million per year) on a new team while bringing back Wesley Johnson and a future first round pick. That future first round pick was the prize of the trade, but the Suns were fortunate to get anything at all out of the deal since Lopez wanted to leave anyway and the Suns would not have matched an offer. The pick from the Wolves, via New Orleans, was mostly lottery protected, but Kevin Love...

Why Robin Lopez fits the Knicks

We can first talk about what Robin Lopez doesn't do, if you want. Are you nodding? I can't actually see you. Okay, well, Robin Lopez isn't his brother, basically. He's also not LaMarcus Aldridge or Greg Monroe -- he won't create much for himself or others. You don't throw the ball to Robin Lopez and expect him to dance his way to a smooth bucket or attract help and whip a pass to the weak side. Neither is he a defensive rebound-gobbler for his position. Lopez isn't going to attack off the dribble often, nor is he much of a floor-spreader. He is not held in high regard for the smoothness of...
