Nets' Lopez Open To Playing Alongside Howard
Nets center Brook Lopez said speculation about the Nets' interest in acquiring Dwight Howard doesn't bother him, and added he could even see himself playing alongside Howard -- if the Nets were able to sign the Magic center as a free agent or otherwise acquire him without trading Lopez.
"You know, I’ve played with bigs before – on other levels, obviously -- with my brother (Robin), growing up,'' Lopez said. "So I think we could do it, if it came down to it somehow. By no means am I endorsing or going out there and saying stuff, but I think we’d find a way if that happened.''
Lopez said his arm -- which was operated on last week to remove calcium deposits and bone fragments that bothered him the entire season -- feels "great,'' and if it heals properly, won't be a problem next season.
