As the Nets turn: Brook Lopez deal to OKC “on hold for now”

Updated: January 16, 2015

SOURCES: There are new players in the Brook Lopez trade speculation and they are the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Houston Rockets.

News has come down in recent minutes that the Brooklyn Nets have backed away from trade discussions for their center  Brook Lopez “for now” and will reassess the market in the coming weeks.

The Nets also have interest in acquiring Thaddeus Young from the struggling Timberwolves as part of a culture change in Brooklyn and are NOT just trying to dump Lopez for salary cap purposes. Brooklyn is looking to get players that can help now in return for their big man.
