According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets and Thudner are in serious talks about a Lopez trade that would send point guard Reggie Jackson to Brooklyn:

The Brooklyn Nets and Oklahoma City are in serious talks on a deal for Brook Lopez – with a key component centering on the Nets’ ability to persuade Thunder guard Reggie Jackson to make a long-term commitment to the franchise, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

There is also a possibility that the deal could be expanded to include the Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers, making it a massive blockbuster deal according to Wojnarowski:

The Thunder would likely include Kendrick Perkins and Perry Jones in the trade to the Nets as well as Jackson who is the centerpiece.

Lopez would give the Thunder a legitimate post presence on offense, something the team has never had in the Kevin Durant era. As the team looks to make a final push and make the playoffs, Lopez would be a major acquisition.

Jackson has been unhappy with his diminishing role in Oklahoma City and has been vocal about his desire to be a starter in the NBA. The Nets would seemingly like to give him the reins to the team, but there is the potential for a logjam in the backcourt as the team still has veterans Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack.
