Nets Re-Sign Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young

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.

From Yahoo:

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.
