But Lopez insists that despite this being a different situation and a new regime, he said he trusts them to tell him if anything were imminent. And he says thatís a conversation that hasnít happened. “I’ve talked to [my agent]. But itís something Iím used to by now. It wouldn’t be comfortable without it,” said Lopez, who had 18 of his 20 points in the second half of a 111-107 loss to the Hornets on Tuesday. “I haven’t heard anything. I’m all right. If it were pressing or something was happening, I’d be aware.

The Brooklyn Nets would move big man Brook Lopez. League sources have said the Nets have been open to that discussion all year, but that their asking price is steep and has been unchanged. The Nets are said to be seeking a lottery level pick this year, and a first-round pick next year. Nets sources have said from the start of the season that if they ended the season with Lopez on the roster, it would not be a bad thing because they would simply restart the talks around the draft.

On Brook Lopez’s future, Eagle reiterated what Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Stein have said in recent weeks, that the Nets “are not giving him away.” (25:25). Eagle suggested in fact that the Nets will likely want a lottery pick in this draft and another future first round pick. If not, he told Egan and Smeltz, “Lopez could be part of this next year.” (22:45) “I know the asking price is legitimately high,. Look around, not a lot of guys who can do what he does,” he added. “I don’t believe they’re going to get desperate and feel the need to dump him.”

But Lopez has spoken with new general manager Sean Marks, and will do so again at more length. Lopez, 28, insisted he has no regrets about re-signing with the club, and Marks reassured the star center he plans to use him as a building block, not a trade chip. “He has talked to me, and we both definitely want to be here and see things happen here and help the team grow going forward,’’ said Lopez, who spoke with Marks before last Tuesday’s game in Orlando and was told he would be shut down for the rest of the season.

When asked if he felt the front office wanted him to return next season, thus picking up his option worth almost $24 million, Wade was noncommittal. “I don’t know,” Wade said. “I haven’t had that conversation about next season with the guys. I think we all understood when I came here I signed a two-year deal with a one-year [player] option. And both sides wanted it that way. And when that time came, no matter what the season or what teammates I had, it was going to be my option. I take my option seriously and I always look into what’s the best thing for me to do.
