Lionel Hollins has been at odds with Brook Lopez at times this season. But that doesn’t mean he wants a breakup. “I don’t worry about whether he’s going to be a free agent, whether he’s going to be back, or anything like that,” Hollins said. “Obviously I’d like for him to be back. I hope he’s going to be back. But those decisions are not mine, and I don’t worry about it.” The Brooklyn Game

When pressed further about his role in the team’s decision-making process, Hollins grew exasperated. “I just said I want him back. How many damn times do I have to say that? Damn.” Hollins then turned to each individual reporter, repeating the mantra: “I want him back. I want him back. I want him back. Okay, everybody got it? I want him back. I want him back. But it’s still his call.” The Brooklyn Game

The “it” in that sentence is his option. Lopez has a player option for next year; if he opts in with the Brooklyn Nets, he’ll earn $16.8 million next season, and become an unrestricted free agent in 2016. If he opts out, he’ll have the chance to re-negotiate his contract, with the Nets or elsewhere, and secure long-term security with a multi-year deal. “(My agent has) reminded me every now and then that that is coming up, the option and there’s opportunities there, but that’s not something I’m focusing on now,” Lopez said.

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson move up a few spots in a list topped by their former head coach.
