Devin Kharpetian, who covers the Nets for the website TheBrooklynGame.com recently tweeted this:
So we decided to confirm if that was accurate.
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. (Smith has never been traded since he signed his first pro contract; Gasol was moved from the Grizzlies to the Lakers in 2008).
