The Brooklyn Nets are shopping around Brook Lopez and Bojan Bogdanovic ahead of February’s trade deadline, reports Keith Smith of RealGM.

To most, this news should come as no surprise given what we know about Lopez, Bogdanovic, and general manager Sean Marks’ stance on two of the franchise’s better players. In other recent reports, specifically one from Marc Stein of ESPN last month, Marks has been listening to offers for Lopez, but won’t be trading the center just to move him — in fact, the asking price still appears to be two first-round draft picks.

The newest addition here is Bogdanovic’s name and it would make loads of sense for the Nets to move on from the Croatian if they’re unlikely to match any offer sheet he signs as a restricted free agent this summer.

This year’s trade deadline is February 23rd and the Nets are set to be some major sellers next month if they so choose.
