NBA Free Agents 2011: Who Is Best Option to Pair with Brook Lopez for NJ Nets?

If there is an NBA season, it will be New Jersey Nets center Brook Lopez’s fourth season.

Though he sometimes has struggled with the mental side of the game, Lopez started coming in his own last season, averaging a career-best 20.4 points.

He hasn’t missed a game in two full seasons as well.

Lopez’s rebounding numbers were down last year, mostly because he floated on the perimeter due to his prowess for hitting the mid-range jumper. That facet of his game projects him as more of a power forward, despite his seven-foot frame.

The Nets will seek to add another big man to pair with Lopez. It will almost resemble the days in San Antonio when Tim Duncan and David Robinson made up the team’s frontcourt.

Naturally, Lopez and whoever the Nets acquire would have a lot to prove before being compared to Duncan and Robinson, but that would be the strategy.

Here are four players the Nets may look to add in free agency to pair with Lopez.
