View Full Version : Brook Lopez Destination

1. What is the best destination for Lopez?
2. Where do you think he actually ends up?
3. Where do you want him to go?


Once the Sixers amnestied Brand (or make in official on the 11th), I was talking to someone at work and Lopez as a good option to use that money.

It gives the Sixers a young big and scorer with some upside.

Now my answers to the above questions:

1. Brooklyn, I say forget about Dwight and go with D-Will, Green, Johnson, and Lopez is strong and build around them with nice role players.

2. I suspect he ends up in Orlando as part of a Dwight trade.

3. I think he'd be a great piece to the Sixers and allow Hawes to come of the bench and Vuc to develop more the next 2 years until Hawes contract runs out. I'd also like to see trades of Igguadala and Thad Young to compliment this move and add to the roster and maybe even the cap next off season.

Really don't like a Lopez deal for us with our current set up. He's a scorer which is something we desperately need but we also need some toughness inside (been saying this for years) defense and rebounding, Brook brings none of that. I'd pass on Lopez if it means signing him to a max or near max long term contract.

Its either Orlando or Brooklyn.

There are no other possibilities.

Nets can't let him go, unless it's a trade.

They don't have any extra cap space to bring in a center.

so if someone offer brook around 10-12 mil the nets will surely match it?

He will be a Net unless a trade happens.

Yea they'll match anything without a doubt. It might cost them resigning Gerald Green but they will match anything for Lopez and worry about the bench of power forward after.

If he doesn't want to end up getting traded anywhere he should go anywhere besides Nets.

He would be a nice compliment, but I'm weary of big men with foot injuries.

Good idea but not a chance in hell he's not a Net next year (unless he's dealt for Howard)

MrfadeawayJB
07-07-2012, 10:54 AM
I agree its either Brooklyn or Orlando. Brooklyn is not a bad fit for him if they hold onto Humphries (banger inside who can rebound, makes up for Lopez's lack of toughness)

He doesn't have a choice, He's a restricted FA.

One thing he could do, is mess up the chances of the Nets trading him, by signing an offer sheet now.

He ends up in New Jersey in the end. But I can see an offer sheet coming from Indiana if they decide not to match Hibbert's max contract.

Some body help me understand, If no teams wants to sign him to a offer sheet cause he is a question mark health wise.

Why the hell would Orlando trade for him? It's even better to let Howard walk than be stuck with an injured player with a huge long term deal.

jayjay33
07-07-2012, 09:41 PM
I have not even heard about any teams even talking to him. Is it that bad? Not even some visits? How can he be the center of a trade.... When nobody even wants him. Lol

He would be good for Dallas, Wolves, Kings, Cavs, Pacers,

Where is this coming from?

He's either being re-signed with Brooklyn or traded to the Magic in a trade for Dwight. The only other possibility I can see would be if there was a trade sending Brook to a 3rd team and someone better to Orlando with Dwight coming to Brooklyn, and that's rare.

I don't think any other teams are an option at all.

You gotta pair him with a 4 who can rebound and helps off his man well. It'd be nice if he also had good athleticism and a midrange shot.

Anthony Davis?

either way hes coming off a season where he played 6 games... his value is down and people who dont watch him play game in and game out underrate him

Because they know it will be futile. An offer sheet ties up that cap money for 3 days starting on July 11th. There is NO way that Nets won't match any offer for Lopez, even a max offer. Every GM knows that and the only teams that might decide to offer Lopez a max will be doing so in an effort to force the Nets into giving Lopez a max contract.

Portland is going after Hibbert because they think there's a small chance that Pacers won't match.

The Nets have clearly shown that they don't care about paying the luxury tax and there are only a small number of teams that are willing to do that.

if he can just rebound the damn ball, be tough and healthy, he'll probably one of the most sought RFA in the league.

You do realize that team's aren't allowed to use their cap space when they offer a Restricted FA a contract right?

So teams offering Lopez a deal wouldn't have that same $10 million while shopping around until the Nets matched, thus increasing the likelihood that players they could actually sign would go to other teams.

If you were the GM of a team, would you lose $10mill of flexibility for 2 weeks when in the end you knew for certain the Nets would match anyway?

I see so basically nobody is going to offer him a contract cause he is too good. Well what happen with gordon? Hornets made it clear they will match any offer?

An if it is so certain that they will match any offer wouldn't somebody sign him to a offer sheet just to keep the nets from putting Howard with joe and dwill? Mavs maybe? Unless they think they might actually end up stuck with him.

jayjay33
07-08-2012, 12:09 PM
Yep....just to CB and try to get him next summer. Nothing to lose....unless their not so sure nets will match and they wil be stuck with this guy. This is the center piece for d12? You do better to let him walk....and have cap space. Then be stuck with Lopez at a huge number. Nobody wants this guy, at Least not at anything close to 10 mil.

dont know what you mean about 2 weeks... but moratorium would be lifted on july 11..and if a team offer him say 10-12 mil on that day nets will only have 3 days to match it... so it probably around a week...

We have drafted plenty of PFs and apparently still drafted one this year.

How could he be any worse than any PF we have had since Webber? Brook has a well rounded offensive game, whether people **** on him or not.
