Nets GM Casts Doubt on Lopez Extension
The New Jersey Nets have yet to offer a contract extension to center Brook Lopez and are unlikely to do so before the Jan. 25 extension deadline for players drafted in 2008, according to general manager Billy King.
“I’m sure I’ll have a conversation with his agent [Arn Tellem],” King told reporters before Wednesday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors. “But I don’t know if we’ll do anything with him at this point. I think you just have to wait. They may throw a number at you that makes sense.”
