Contrary to the common belief, the Brooklyn Nets are NOT interested in pursuing the Lakers star Center Dwight Howard. Although Howard showed serious interest in joining the ball club last season, this year the Nets are showing much less interest.
When asked about the possible trade talks, Nets center Brook Lopez had to say this: â€śI was at that point a long time ago,â€ť he said before the Nets faced the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night at Target Center. â€śI donâ€™t pay any attention to what the media says. I just go about my business and focus on whatâ€™s important here.â€ť
Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo also backed up Lopez, â€śWeâ€™ve been saying all along, heâ€™s been playing in my opinion as well as any center in the league,â€ť Nets Coach P. J. Carlesimo said. â€śI donâ€™t think thatâ€™s me trying to sell him or anything like that. The numbers back it up, and people who have seen him can see that.â€ť Future trade talks with other teams have been silenced for the time being.
