What the DeMarcus Cousins trade means for the Brooklyn Nets

It’s the eve of the NBA trade deadline and the Brooklyn Nets are making moves. Good moves too. Borjan Bogdanovic for a first round pick in this stacked draft? As a franchise with no playoff aspirations within the next few years, I’d take that anyday. The Bogy deal is good but, and I’ve said before, who the Nets really need to get rid of is Brook Lopez. He’s a top ten center...

One Net not named Lopez also a subject of trade deadline talk

With the NBA trade deadline looming, the market for Brook Lopez is shrinking. The Nets could very well deal Bojan Bogdanovic instead.
