A couple notes:

• Nets center Brook Lopez had successful foot surgery and is expected to return to game action in 6 to 8 weeks, the team announced Friday.

• The Nets announced that they've officially signed small forward DeShawn Stevenson. The deal is for one-year and $2.5 million, a league source told ESPN NewYork.com.

• The Nets must have their final roster set by Saturday at 6 p.m. With 16 players on their roster now, they must decide between veteran Ime Udoka and NBDL surprise Josh Horner. It's just my opinion, but I think Horner deserves it with the camp and preseason he's had.

• Finally, former Yankee great Bernie Williams will perform the national anthem and a halftime show at the team's home opener Dec. 27 against Atlanta.
