The Charlotte Hornets, Brooklyn Nets and Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly engaged in discussions over a three-way trade deal involving Lance Stephenson.
Stephenson has been a poor fit in Charlotte and has disappointed this season after his move from the Indiana Pacers last summer, and speculation has been rife for months that he is available for trade.
The reported deal would see him join the Nets, and while Brooklyn center Brook Lopez would be moved to Oklahoma City. Charlotte would receive Jarrett Jack, Jeremy Lamb and Grant Jerrett in the deal.
Other pieces are understood to be included in the deal in order to make it work for the three teams financially.
It is also reported that Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins could move to the Nets in the deal too, and while the Thunder and Hornets have given the go-ahead to the deal, it is understood that Brooklyn remain the only team in the trade considering it still.
Brooklyn have previously held talks with the Miami Heat about Lopez, with coach Lionel Hollins seemingly deciding that he is surplus to requirements at the Barclays Center.
The franchise has also been open to trading point guard Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, but talks with the Sacramento Kings regarding the former have cooled after initial interest.
The Nets (16-23) have lost seven straight games and general manager Billy King has been looking to make changes as rumours continue to swirl that the franchise is up for sale.
Stephenson would arguably relish the opportunity to return home to Brooklyn as he has disappointed in Charlotte after signing a three-year deal worth $27m in the off-season.
