@SamAmicoFSO:

Source: Nets have secured Kris Humphries-for-Ben Gordon trade with Bobcats, but waiting to see what happens with Hawks' Josh Smith first.

Pretty great deal for the Nets if you ask me, especially as a fall back on Smith who I think has always been unrealistic. Also keeps my boy Marshon a Net.

Hopefully Hump will get some minutes with the Bobcats. He's been killing my fantasy team.

Hopefully we sign Donte Greene with that 15th roster spot

I like the idea of a backup plan.

Its been a great run Hump, you'll always be a "cool guy" in my heart.

@SamAmicoFSO:

Nets hanging onto Kris Humphries, source adds, because he could be movable piece in 3-team deal involving Hawks, but not Bobcats.

No surprise here. Still really skeptical the Nets can grab Smith.

He should. Charlotte has no big man presence. They need Humph in the worst way.

From everything reported over a week ago, the Bobcats actually approached the Nets and was reported as a 1 for 1 swap. Hopefully things have stayed the same.

I thought Humphries was going to be solid this year, but he stunk. Ben Gordon helps fill a spot as a 6th man. I don't think Brooklyn is a threat regardless. Get Dwight, and maybe the site can talk about a top 4 seed in the East.

The Brooklyn Nets are no longer considering a deal for Charlotte's Ben Gordon, league source tells Y! Sports.

This trade was reported as false, but if it were true, there is no way the Bobcats would be getting anything more. Gordon is viewed as a negative asset, even worse than Humphries. If anything, they should be including something to sweeten the deal.

Wow as soon as Amico speaks of it it gets completely shot down by everyone. My bad all, really pissed and surprised by this knowing that the Nets really REALLY don't like Hump.

@HowardBeckNYT: Received an emphatic denial that Nets have agreed to any Humphries/Gordon deal. They don't want Gordon, period


David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt
As @HowardBeckNYT reported, Nets strongly--"100 percent"--deny reports of Humphries/Gordon trade. They told CHA Wed. nothing would happen.

It seemed like this was a deal that was close to going down. I wonder if it fell through because the Nets have something else?

And now it seems like the Nets are out of the Josh Smith running too....this deal completely blows HBAP out of the water


Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Hawks, Bucks seriously talking on Josh Smith deal, sources tell Y! Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh among players discussed for Smith, Devin Harris.
