Countdown to the trade deadline - Brook Lopez, Jusuf Nurkic

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez and Denver Nuggets big man Jusuf Nurkic have joined Paul Millsap on the trade block.

It appears the Nets are finally throwing in the towel on the season and seek to get a rebuild underway by moving Lopez, though for now it seems likely the reported two first round picks will discourage most - if not all - teams from making a move for the veteran center.

Nurkic, on the other hand, still has another year after this season on his rookie deal, and could probably be had for a quality first and a backcourt prospect or two, assuming he is not packaged with other players on Denver's roster - such as Kenneth Faried - who do not fit the youth movement underway in the mile-high city.

Should Boston make a deal for one of these two big men? If so, what should it be? Vote in the Twitter poll, and leave comments on specific packages or thoughts you have about either prospective target; we'll use the best - and funniest - in our write-up on these two potential Celtics trade options.
