Just before the 2016 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls traded their former MVP Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks in a package that revolved around big man Robin Lopez, who also happens to be the twin brother of Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez.

Of course, as twins, it can be a bit confusing as to which brother is which -- I mean, just ask Fred Hoiberg, the head coach of the Chicago Bulls who seems to think his team has traded for Brook Lopez.


Well, of course, the Nets wanted to set the record -- or at least a record... -- straight.

Yes, they think highly of him, so much so that they didn't trade him to the Bulls. Well, at least not that we know of...wait, does Hoiberg know something we don't know?! No. No he doesn't.
