Bobcats attempt to land Brook Lopez falls short

Bobcats pursuit of Brook Lopez looks to be coming to an end according to report from Yahoo Sports that suggests Nets and Lopez are closing in on a 5-year, $78 million max contract.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com is reporting that Portland and Charlotte are ready to offer Brook Lopez a max contract, so now the Nets must move on either signing Lopez long term or involving him in a sign-and-trade deal. Tweets below and updates will follow.

Brooklyn IS probably asking Lopez to wait and they could possibly offer him 5th year money, but on the same token, Lopez could put the ball in their court and force the Nets to make a move immediately by going ahead and just signing an offer sheet. Portland would seem to be the more likely destination with a guy like LaMarcus Aldridge. We’ll see. Updates coming.
