We tracked trade rumor mentions on HoopsHype (which we humbly consider the go-to place for these matters) in the last three years to find out which players appeared most often in the trade mill without actually getting moved. Kharpetian's assertion was not far off: Nets center Brook Lopez is No. 3 in mentions of trade rumors that didn't lead to a deal. Only Pau Gasol and Josh Smith are ahead of him in the past three years. HoopsHype

Dr. Michael Farber, the Nets’ team physician, will continue to examine Teletovic after he returns to the New York area, and while Teletovic will miss the remainder of the season, Farber believes the 29-year old will “make a full recovery.” “Diagnostic testing was arranged and he was then observed until testing showed that he reached the expected therapeutic range,” Farber said. “We are pleased to say that he reports no symptoms at this time… This was a true collaborative effort between our medical team and training staff and the local physicians at the Los Angeles hospital where Mirza was treated. I am really pleased with how Mirza has progressed.” Wall Street Journal

In fact, a pair of recent reports have cast doubt on whether Hollins and Johnson will still be with the team when the snow subsides. The Nets’ brass is prepared to “evaluate” Hollins, according to a report from ESPN. Johnson, meanwhile, was being discussed in trade talks with the Charlotte Hornets, who were offering a package including Brooklyn native Lance Stephenson, swingman Gerald Henderson and forward Marvin Williams, according to a report from Yahoo Sports. But according to a source with knowledge of the Nets’ thinking, the report about Hollins was untrue and the trade talks with the Hornets had ended. Still, the two teams could reignite negotiations closer to the Feb. 19 trade deadline. In fact, the Hornets have discussed sending Stephenson to Brooklyn no fewer than three times since signing him to a three-year, $27 million deal last summer, according to the source.

Alex Kennedy: Rival executive told me that restrictions put on tax teams and ugly contracts of Williams/Johnson are making it difficult for Nets to trade. The Nets could obviously dump those guys. But getting significant pieces back who would turn around their season is proving to be difficult. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA
