Stein: Nets drop asking price on Lopez

Marc Stein reports that the Nets have lowered their price on Brook Lopez...

For weeks, Stein has said the Nets price for their best player was two first rounders, what Cleveland gave Denver for Timofey Mozgov in January 2015. Since that deal, two picks, even heavily protected, have become somewhat of a standard for seven footers. Of course, over the weekend, the Kings accepted a first and second rounder as well as highly regarded rookie for the NBA’s leading center, DeMarcus Cousins.

In the Nets case, the two firsts were seen as a starting point in negotiations. However, it is uncertain what teams want for Lopez. There have been rumors in the past few days that the Kings and Pacers are interested, but both were shot down. And in the Kings case, is no longer plausible since Sacramento sent the assets mentioned in the rumors to New Orleans.
