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?
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.
I just looked up Humphries stats, I had no idea he was struggling so bad this year.
Humphries is a SOLiD rebounder and scorer..he is a good contributor....good defense, shot blocking...
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.
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.
