The Nets have re-signed Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young to multi-year deals: three years, $60 million for Lopez and four years, $50 million for Young. After trading away Mason Plumlee on draft night, Brooklyn quickly re-signed the frontcourt duo just hours into free agency.
Lopez’s deal gives the Nets “some protections” should the center continue to have foot issues.
The Brooklyn Nets have reached agreements with free agents Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Lopez, 27, will receive a three-year, $60 million maximum contract that includes some protections for the Nets should a recurrence of Lopez’s foot issues sideline him again, sources said. The deal will incude a player option after the second season, which would allow him to re-enter free agency once new television money raises the salary cap.
Young, 27, who opted out of $10.2 million owed him next season, will sign a four-year, $50 million deal with a player option, sources said.
Lopez and Young can’t officially sign their contracts until the NBA’s free-agent moratorium ends on July 9.
