ABOUT

Brook Lopez is an American professional basketball player who plays as a Center for the Milwaukee Bucks. He played college basketball for Stanford and after 2 years of College Basketball, he was selected 10th overall by the Brooklyn Nets in the 2008 NBA draft. His twin brother Robin Lopez is also a professional NBA player (he was drafted 15th Overall by the Phoenix Suns in the same draft).


Brook was named a third-team All-American selection by the Associated Press, adding to his lengthy list of honors during the 2007-08 campaign, he was an All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention and was named to the All-Pac-10 Freshman Team. He averaged 12.6 points and 6 rebounds in his freshman season and 19.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in his sophomore season.


He made his debut in a 95-85 win against the Washington Wizards on October 29, 2008, where he came off the bench for 8 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks in 25 minutes. He had a hugely impressive rookie season as he finished third in the NBA rookie of the Year voting and was named to the NBA All-Rookie first team, The Nets, however, had a disappointing season and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

In 2013, he was selected to play in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game replacing an injured Rajon Rondo. Lopez was a constant force for the Nets and played for them for 9 years before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2017 offseason. Lopez is one of the only two players to score 10,000 points for the Nets (besides Buck Williams). He became the Nets' all-time leading scorer at the end of the 2016-17 Season.


He is currently on a contract with the Milwaukee Bucks on a 1-year, $3.38 million deal.
