NETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brook Lopez is the NBA's most underrated big man

Brook Lopez could make any NBA team better. At seven feet tall, Lopez possesses offensive skills that many NBA bigs couldn't dream of. As the trade deadline approaches, it would be wise for potential contenders to consider adding him as the final piece to a championship puzzle. Lopez is an offensive freak. He is second in the NBA this season among centers in points per game with...

Joe Johnson reportedly would welcome a trade to leave the Brooklyn Nets

At this point of the season, the Brooklyn Nets know that they have no chance to make the NBA playoffs. So they are basically playing for pride and auditioning for an opportunity to return to the team or get picked up by someone else next season.

Nets’ Joe Johnson would ‘welcome’ a trade

The Brooklyn Nets seem like one of the biggest sellers ahead of the NBA trade deadline, though most wouldn’t expect veteran guard Joe Jonson to be one of the names on the move. Johnson is certainly a piece the Nets might like to move were it not for a contract that pays the Arkansas product Kobe Bryant money. According to BasketballInsiders.com’s Moke Hamilton, even Johnson...

Evaluating Brooklyn Nets tradable assets

The Brooklyn Nets are one of the worst teams in the NBA this season with a record of 14-39. When looking at the team, most would think the organization should hold a fire sale. However, owner Mikhail Prokhorov recently said he is not looking to trade the team’s two best players, center Brook Lopez and forward Thaddeus Young. This seems counterintuitive. The team has no draft pick...

Stan Van Gundy blasts Jennings-Young trade rumor

Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy isn’t a fan of NBA trade rumors ahead of the deadline.

Report: Joe Johnson buyout would 'pique Heat's interest'

Joe Johnson may be sticking around in Brooklyn. He may not. What we know is he says he won't request a trade. When asked about a buyout, though, he left things a little more murky. So, let's say we live in a world where Johnson does get bought out by the Nets. Let's say he and the team come to some agreement and the 34-year-old wing, who has played much better of late, hits the...

Brooklyn And The Usefulness Of Pursuing Restricted Free Agents

There's no need to dance around the obvious - the Brooklyn Nets are a disaster and there's no clear path for them back to respectability anytime soon. They fired their head coach and their GM in the last few weeks, but they might as well be re-arranging deck chairs for all the good that it's going to do. The Nets are one of the worst teams in the league, they have no young talent...

How to Get the Brooklyn Nets Draft Picks

As I explored earlier this season, the Brooklyn Nets would be in much better shape these days if the franchise had simply elected to hold on to their draft picks instead of constantly dealing them away for aging stars. Although the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers both have worse records than the Nets at this point, in many ways it’s the Nets who have the bleakest organizational...
