   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

I've said it so many times that it's becoming kind of repetitive, yet it bears no less true - Phoenix really, really, really, really need rebounding help. Amongst their big men, the only average calibre rebounder is Robin Lopez, and even he's only been average for one season. He was a poor rebounder in both his rookie year and his college career.

(Brook is one of the best centre prospects we have had for many a year. This is proven by the way he walked into a 34/14/8 without using a huge amount of effort to do it. And he's already loafing his way to 20ppg. But he needs a little Humphries in him to realise his potential. So does Robin Lopez.)

   2017 NBA Manifesto

Robin Lopez
C, 7’0, 255lbs, 29 years old, 9 years of experience

Yet another remarkably solid season from a man who always has solid seasons. He may not have much explosion around the basket or be the most efficient finisher, yet his ability to make hook shots and flat-footed jump-shots from the mid-range areas gave the team an interior option that at least created a target to throw to, as well as an offensive rebounding presence and effective defender around the basket. Lopez is a pure centre who does not leave the paint on either end other than to screen, due to a lack of mobility which limits him, but he plays within those limitations and is effective when he does so. There is still a role for tradition-al centres if they are good, and Lopez is good.

Player Plan: Two years and circa. $28 million remaining. A good player for a good price who might be worthy of a first round pick in six months to a year’s time, albeit with no replacement for him immediately obvious.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 24th October 2017

Given their serious lack of talent at the moment – partly due to injuries, partly due to deliberate rebuilding – Lopez might be the Bulls’ best player on both ends of the court at the moment. Always good for some rebounds and blocks, Lopez is enjoying an increased offensive role with the Bulls at present, aided by his backup Cristiano Felicio being ineffectual and both Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis being absent. Lopez costs less than the elite centres available yet should put up numbers that will compare with them, especially against a Cleveland team that does not match up with him favourably.
