Edit: All I'm saying is it makes sense that the Nets would get the guy. Nets desperately need shooters on this team, and it has been reported that Orlando wants a young prospect in return on a rookie scale contract. They also need depth at the 4 spot now with Baby gone for the season. Having Redick on the floor has a profound effect on limiting turnovers solely due to better spacing. It would allow Johnson and Deron to drive the lane, and kick it out to Redick on the perimeter. Johnson wouldn't have to be a spot-up shooter for the Nets, but solely a shot creator, clutch shooter, and a passer. FWIW, Arn Tellem is his agent and two of his biggest clientele, Lopez and JJ, play for Brooklyn. IDK, something to keep in mind with trade season dawning upon us.

Boozer for Humphries
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ablbvov Yes, it would.
I would definitely consider that trade but the Bulls would not.
This season Boozer is finally playing up to what he is getting paid for and no way are the Bulls gonna trade him unless they get some sorta offer "they can't refuse".
idk if i am missing something.....but why the heck would the bulls want to trade boozer for humphries? Bulls are in contention still they are going to be gettign rose back for playoffs and will have a top 5 seed. Why would they make their team worse ...makes no sense for the bulls not happening
Just saw on netsdaily that we don't wanna make any big trades to make us a contender this year they even said something about trying to get hedo from the magic what do you guys think about that
The only reason that might any sense at all is if we got rid of one of the big and long term contracts and that's only if Hedo has an expiring at the end of this season.
Brooklyn Nets | New Jersey Devils | New York Yankees | New York Giants

I looked at both contracts of Hedo and Hump, and they're almost identical. But the key thing is, Turkoglu's contract has a buyout next season. This makes it more attractive to teams looking to shed money because his contract is only partially guaranteed, whereas Humphries' contract is guaranteed the full $12 mil. I'm not exactly sure how partial guarantees work, but I'm guessing the Nets could trade Turkoglu next season for a contract equal or more to Humphries', then that team could buy him out and save a couple million. Makes it a lot easier to make a deal including him, then for Kris, due to the immediate cap savings. So basically I see this as the Nets realizing the market for Humphries is garbage, and they'll basically get an equal contract in Turk and trade him next season for another player. Turkoglu fills a need for the Nets in the present, and Humphries fills a need for them as well since Glen Davis is out for the season. Would love if King expanded this and included Redic. Nets would have to add MarShon, and probably cash considerations.
I love Brooks's potential but I think LA would move Gasol. So I would deal Brooks, Hump, and Tele for Gasol. Then Gasol plays the 4 and can move to the 5 when Lopez comes out.
