Brook Lopez had his chance to leave the Nets over the summer.
He didn’t take it.
Lopez signed a three-year, $60 million deal to stay with the only team he’s ever known.
The Nets are in the midst of another disappointing season, certainly far from what Lopez envisioned when he re-signed. But the 27-year-old doesn’t regret his decision.
“No, no, no. I’m happy to be here,” Lopez said Thursday at the team’s practice facility.
“Time and time again I’ve said I wanted to see something built here, I see a special opportunity, a great situation to be in.”
