Not sure why the Nets want to trade Humphries (salary dump?), but to contend, they'll need him a lot more than they'll need a gunner, especially since they already have one in Joe Johnson.

Good trade for both teams Brooklyn.

Brooklyn gets a talent upgrade and a player who will make their small ball lineups far more effective and Charlotte cuts .. wait, Humphries got a two year deal. He is not an expiring contract. I thought it was a salary dump. Charlotte were cutting a year of B.Gordon's salary by taking Humphries for him.

Oh, okay. Very good trade for Brooklyn and terrible trade for Charlotte.

Doesn't Charlotte have a bunch of big men, including Tyrus Thomas and Biyombo, who are underperforming PFs already? Why do they want to import another one?

I don't know what you've seen to date that would make you think the Bobcats are run competently.

Because he's paid $12 million per season and is currently relegated to being a 2 mpg player off the bench?

Is he 12 million/year good?

Sources: Nets, Bobcats Discussing Humphries-Gordon Swap

The Brooklyn Nets and Charlotte Bobcats are discussing a trade that would swap Kris Humphries and Ben Gordon, according to league sources.

Trade talks are ongoing but nothing is imminent.

Both Gordon and Humphries make $12 million this season.

The Nets are searching for a shooter to space the floor and believe Gordon -- who's averaging 13.1 points on 41.7 percent three-point shooting this season -- would fill a void.
