Plumlee, 25, averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds in 82 games (45 starts) for the Nets last season. Olshey said that the addition of Plumlee does not signal the end of free agent Robin Lopez’s tenure in Portland. However with seven free agents and 10 uncertain contracts on the roster, the Blazers future, at center and elsewhere, remains murky. “We have a lot of business we’ve got to take care of,” Olshey said Thursday night following the draft. “We’ve got double-digit free agents. We don’t control all these situations. A lot of them have indicated their desire to be back in Portland, (but) it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going to be able to retain their services.”

Although Lopez, on Friday afternoon, officially opted out of the $16.7 million he could have received for the 2015-16 season, according to multiple sources, the fact the Nets were willing to move Mason Plumlee to pick up a second first-round pick Thursday — which they used to snag Arizona swingman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson — only reinforced a growing belief within the organization and around the league Lopez will re-sign with the Nets once free agency begins next month.
