Nets coach Kenny Atkinson had nothing but praise for Brook Lopez at his final press conference of the season on Monday.
Lopez is entering the final year of his contract but it looks like Atkinson still believes in his abilities, calling Lopez “one of the elite centers in the league” and that he was proud of the way he conditioned and adapted his game to Brooklyn’s new system. He’s been involved in plenty of trade rumours and that will likely continue until a trade actually goes down. Lopez averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 boards, 1.8 triples and 1.7 blocks this season for the Nets.
