Nets may not offer Brook Lopez an extension
Brook Lopez was able to shoot (without jumping), rebound and pass at practice. He got out of the protective boot he had been wearing on Tuesday, he said. Lopez was asked about general manager Billy King saying Wednesday he likely would not offer Lopez a contract extension.
The team has until Jan. 25 to sign Lopez to an extension, otherwise he will become a restricted free agent July 1.
Lopez claimed not to have thought about an extension. “I didn’t even know there was a deadline for contracts, honestly,” Lopez said. “I knew there was a trade deadline.”
