Thaddeus Young, Brook Lopez opting out?

The safe assumption is the Nets will make strong offers to both Lopez and Young once they opt out of their current contracts and become free agents July 1. All signs point to Lopez, despite his worrisome injury history, declining his $16.74 million option for next season and heading to the open market after responding to a near-trade to Oklahoma City with a monster second half. Young, despite his status as a longtime King favorite, is likewise believed to be leaning toward bypassing the $10-ish million he is owed for 2015-16 to do the same.

Bleacher Report: Are you at all concerned about Turner’s departure, or do you see Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown being able to replace a lot of what he did? Isaiah Thomas: We’re going to miss Evan. He’s a guy who can not only make a play for himself, but a play for his teammates. When we played together, I played off the ball and let him make plays. We’re definitely going to miss that, but [his exit] is an opportunity someone else can take advantage of. I know Marcus Smart is going to be ready and is working hard. Another guy, my guy, Terry Rozier, is going to surprise people. I think he’s ready to make an impact. And then there’s Jaylen Brown. He’s going to be as ready as he has to be, and he’s going to help us wherever he can fit in. I’m excited at the opportunity to be competing with these guys. I’m excited to see who’s gotten better and what guys have worked on.

It sounds almost unreal, however according to reports from the Greek island of Mykonos, US gold medalist Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan have already arrived from Rio, Brazil, to celebrate their success! As you see in the footage, there’s no doubt that Durant and Jordan were filmed in Mykonos partying, still the question is if the date on this video is true. Still their mood is great and you can enjoy the video.
