The Oklahoma City Thunder haven’t given up hope on landing center Brook Lopez.
The Thunder are in serious negotiations with the Brooklyn Nets involving Lopez for a package that would include Thunder guard Reggie Jackson, Yahoo Sports/FOX Sports 1 NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported hours before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers might also become part of a bigger, four-team deal that would include Nets forward Kevin Garnett and Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young, Wojnarowski reports.

The Nets are gauging Jackson’s willingness to commit long-term with the team, according to Wojnarowski. The Thunder would include center Kendrick Perkins and forward Perry Jones in the proposed trade.
Jackson turned down a four-year, $48 million extension with the Thunder. He wants out of Oklahoma City in order to become a starter.
The teams engaged in trade talks involving Lopez in January, but that proposed deal, which also included the Charlotte Hornets, fell through.
