The Brooklyn Nets have opted to keep Brook Lopez as their center.
Lopez agreed to a new contract with Wednesday with the Nets, who were unable to complete a deal for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.
Terms of the contract have not been disclosed, but a league source told ESPNNewYork.com’s Mike Mazzeo that Lopez, a restricted free agent, agreed to a four-year, $60 million max deal.
This effectively ends Brooklyn’s pursuit of Howard, since Lopez can’t be traded until Jan. 15 once he signs the contract, per rules of the collective bargaining agreement.
