Feb 22, 2017 3:58 PM

The Brooklyn Nets haver agreed to trade Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a 2017 first round pick.

The Wizards traded their 2016 first round pick last year for Markieff Morris.

Brooklyn will swap their own first round pick this year with the Boston Celtics, which will likely give them two first rounders in the twenties.

Nets Drop Asking Price For Brook Lopez

Feb 21, 2017 12:54 PM

The Brooklyn Nets have dropped their asking price for Brook Lopez ahead of Thursday's trade deadline.

The Nets have been seeking two first round picks in exchange for Lopez, but they now are willing to accept a first round pick and a second round pick.

With the New Orleans Pelicans acquiring DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings for just Buddy Hield, a first round pick and a second round pick from the 76ers, the Nets have seemingly lost leverage in negotiations.
