It looks like the Brooklyn Nets are serious about their intentions of moving their star big man Brook Lopez. Reports now say that the Nets have changed their stance on what they’d like to get in exchange for the one-time All-Star.
Per ESPN’s Marc Stein–
The price on Brook Lopez has dropped, league sources say. Instead of two first-rounders, word is Brooklyn would accept a first and a second.

It’s currently unknown whether this is due to a sense of urgency by the franchise, or if the dealings of Mason Plumlee, Jusuf Nurkic and DeMarcus Cousins have softened the leagues trade market for big men. It’s also unknown whether any teams are showing much interest in Lopez, who is averaging a career high 20.8 points per game to go along with a solid 5.2 rebounds per game, 2.5 assists per game and 1.8 blocks per game.
