Here we go again. For years Brook Lopez has been the focal point of trade talks; whether its the disastrous Dwight Howard talks or last year’s Detroit Pistons possibilities, the Nets star center has found himself on the trade block more than he ought to have.

The Nets are bound to be among the bottom handful of teams again in 2016-17, with only Boston’s first round pick at the end of the tunnel.
