The Brooklyn Nets will be without Brook Lopez for the remainder of the season, but they have no plans on replacing him with a player outside the organization at this point.
"If there's a deal out there that we feel is going to make us a better team, we'll do it regardless of tax or the future, but we're not going to panic and do a move just to make a move because we feel we have to," Billy King said Sunday. "I still believe in this group. Brook's a big part of it, but we do have other guys, that's why we have depth."
The Nets do not expect to be a "seller" ahead of the deadline.
The Nets could sign a player with a disabled player exception, which they have applied for with the league office.
"Every team that has a big guy on the sideline calls to offer their services, but we had been in discussions with a lot of teams up to this point," King said. "There's not an imminent move, we're not looking to make any imminent move trade-wise. We've got 14 other guys that can step up, but we'll continue to discuss possibilities if it can make our team better."
