The Nets have made it clear that their “Big 3” of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson are available, said SI.com’s Chris Mannix on Celtics Pregame Live.

While the salaries of the trio may scare some teams away, Mannix said the Celtics might want to look into Lopez.

“There’s no evidence they’re looking into him,” Mannix told Kyle Draper before Brooklyn played in Boston on Friday afternoon. “If I’m Boston, I’d do my homework on Brook Lopez. He’s in his mid-20s. He’s a guy who’s a pure center, who has been an All-Star. He makes some decent money but, if you’re rebuilding a team, a guy like that wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to start with.”
