Brooklyn's started talks with RFA Brook Lopez on extension, sources tell Y! Could be to stay with Nets or used in sign-and-trade with Magic.

Hey, if that's what the Devos family and that tool Alex Martins want, there's nothing we can do about it. Brook Lopez FTW! :superman:

Howard gets traded out west to a team not in California... And nets keep Lopez.

Lopez should have a big year because the defense of other teams will be worrying about the other all star players on the Nets.

Nets are getting Lopez and Hump extensions done, fast and furious in order to get the Dwight deal done. If we keep Lopez, i think he'll improve drastically next season in Brooklyn.

I wouldnt coorporate if I was Lopez,I would just play out my current contract and walk as a free agent. I would inform my agent max contract or im walking,screw an extension. Yes I kno Lopez is not a max player,but why would he sign an extension after being dangled in trades for Howard multiple times. Its evident he's not featured in their future,he should know that he's being used as trade bait. I know its a business but would you coopprate if you were in his shoes after constantly being in trade talks,also knowing you probably end up getting more money becoming a free agent? I would tell the Nets not interested,a polite way of saying "screw you".

If they're moving to sign them both, it looks like S&T's are in the making.

Dwight to Brooklyn seems to be inevitable

Don't understand why Lopez is being so nice about the way the Nets have treated him... why sign an extension with this team, the second he plays well he will be shipped to Orlando faster than he can ay Mickey Mouse. We have all seen the Nets will do ANYTHING to get Dwight, so Lopez should know that even if he isnt traded this week, he will never have security on this team.

For the sake of the NBA I hope Dwight goes to Brooklyn. I rather the Heat Nets give us a competitive series than have to wait (I dont think The Lakers will make the Finals with or without Dwight) and hope that The Lakes make the Finals to play the Heat. And I am not overrating the Heat saying they are a lock, but the East is so pathetic that the Nets are the only ones who stand a chance of competing against them if they get Dwight.

well hes not going to get max unless there is a market for him at that price.... if he has been offered anything near max right he would have sign an offer sheet... hes coming off a season where hes played 8 games...and honestly roy hibbert and omer asik probably scared teams away thinking they were gonna have to pay brook near max

All im saying is he has to look out for himself... Unless dwight gets traded to the Lakers, there will always be that rhmor of him getting traded to the worst team in the NBA... if jm him i look for a deal with a team that i choose and will keep me long term.

He's a Knicks beat reporter insider. He doesn't report anything until it's on the verge of being done. If Tommy knows, that means he spoke to a higher up that knows someone close to Orlando or the Cavs, I'm guessing it's the Cavs reporter who told him.

Think Korver would have been a better choice for Heat.
