After lunch at a restaurant near the Barclays Center site, Brook Lopez, accompanied by Billy King, Bobby Marks and Bruce Ratner, got the tour of the arena construction site, the latest high profile visit by Nets players and officials. Deron Williams and King were at the site last week and Kris Humphries last month.
Lopez still had his right arm in a sling as he walked the site, now looking increasingly like a basketball arena. Some pre-cast concrete is now in place and officials expect to see the arena's distinctive skin going up within the next six weeks or so.
It was the first tour for Lopez and Marks, the second for King.
