The Nets don't want to trade Hump unless they are getting a star in return, and I agree. His contract is the only one that we will have to trade for at least the next couple years so we need to hold onto it unless we are really improving our team. Getting guys like Okafor or Tyrus Thomas make no sense.
Nonsense. The guy is just another volume scorer. Also Nene is absolutely available. Just because he would fix all our problems and because he is a good player does not change the fact that his contract is bad and they would love to unload him.
Humphries for Nene straight up is something Washington would consider.
Even though i do not think Millsap is the answer i would much rather them trade for him than Gay
I just don't think the Nets would trade for Nene. I wouldn't mind having him, because I do think he'll help. But I think the Nets look at his injury history and say it's a huge gamble. And I'm just not sure Washington gives him up. I think they want to build around that core of Wall-Beal-Nene. At least that's what I've seen from Wizards fans.
The Nets can easily get Nene for Hump straight up. Nene is injury prone and has a lot of year on a max contract on a team that is years away from competing for a title. I am sure Washington would want the cap relief but the Nets can do better next year....like Kevin Love who can opt out in 2015. So next year at the trade deadline he will have 15 monts left on his contract. Hump, Brooks, and a couple firsts for him would be a good offer.
There s also the chance of a package trade with other teams seeking cap relief for D12 if he won't resign with LA. We might be able to keep Lopez. I think D12, Brook, and Joe is a better big 3 than Deron,Joe, and Brook. Deron for D12 and then deal Hump,Swag, and a first for Brandon Jennings and Iilyanosa.
If we wait we can slide in with some offers when teams see guys re leaving. Jennings is gone father next season.

I am 100% behind Jerseyfinest on this one.
Listen Rudy Gay maybe is not the answer we need. But he is a younger version of Gerald Wallace. If Gerald
Wallace continues to play the way he is playing I honestly don't think he will get much more mileage maybe 1 year max... He is such an athletic player that his age and mileage will simply catch up to him. So going for Rudy Gay MAKES PERFECT SENSE!.
I understand we need a PF and backup to Brook. But we need Athletic players... Right now the only guy with any athleticism is Crash Wallace. Gay helps especially if we get to keep Crash Wallace. If not. It will give us the chance this offseason to get some guys that can help.
To me it's not about star power it's about what is available. We are crippled salary wise, and when you are crippled and the only real asset you have is Kris Humphries and some picks.. Go after one weakness not several. That is just my two cents
BEAT THE KNICKS
Milsap and Evans would be ideal pieces to our lineup right now.

Alright, changing my deadline prediction since Memphis made that trade to get underneath the luxury tax:
Nets get Paul Millsap in a three team deal involving the Bobcats.
Paul Millsap and Raja Bell to BKN
Kris Humphries, Jamaal Tinsley, and BKN's 2013 1st round pick to CHA (Receive a veteran point guard in return for Sessions, an elite rebounder they could surely use, and a draft pick)
Ramon Sessions, MarShon Brooks, and Hakim Warrick to Utah (Warrick has a team option this summer, so Utah can decline to accept it and he'd become a free agent. Or they could keep him and he can spell Favors)
Sign Damion James for the rest of the season: Athletic player, good defender, and he's a very solid rebounder. Loves being a Net, and he can give solid minutes.
Make Stackhouse an assistant coach: You already know why.
TE for Evan Fournier: Saw this on TBG. He's a very young player, but he barely plays in Denver because of all the wings they have. He's a solid scorer, and he's French (globalization doe). Nets really liked him before the draft, so there is something here.
Updated Roster post-deadline:
Deron Williams/ C.J. Watson/ Tyshawn Taylor
Joe Johnson/ Raja Bell/ Evan Fournier
Gerald Wallace/ Keith Bogans/ Damion James
Paul Millsap/ Reggie Evans/ Mirza Teletovic
Brook Lopez/ Andray Blatche

We can really use a good 3 point shooter at the 3 playing with Williams, Lopez, and JJ down the stretch of games.
Wallace and Bogans get so many open shots playing with those guys.
A deadly shooter would make them extremely hard to stop
