Lopez Impressed by Yi, Says Trade Was "Difficult"

Brook Lopez, Yi Jianlian and Sean Williams were all working out at the Nets training facility Monday, with Lopez fielding questions on Yi's progress and his reaction to the trade that sent a mentor and a good friend packing. Lopez said Yi surprised him with some new post moves and strength. He called the loss of Vince Carter and Ryan Anderson "difficult" but likes being a focal point--and face--of the team.
