Brooklyn Nets trade rumors have a Kris Humphries trade for Ben Gordon of the Charlotte Bobcats getting discussed. According to a report from Friday night (Feb. 8), the talks are ongoing and the salaries for both players work in this deal. Gordon and Humphries both make $12 million a season, setting up a trade that would work financially for both franchises.
This is exactly what the Nets need to spread the floor and improve the offense. Gordon can provide a lot of offense off the bench, but with the guard depth in Charlotte he sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. In Brooklyn he might be able to get heavy minutes as the sixth man and give the Nets a great three-point threat late in games.
The Bobcats would be willing to make this deal for the same reason, because they have depth at guard already. With Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions, and Gerald Henderson holding down the guard minutes, Gordon is certainly very expendable. Humphries could provide the team with a power forward who could play heavy minutes with the starting rotation.
This trade doesn't seem like it is imminent, but it certainly is one that could help out both teams. What the Charlotte Bobcats might do, though, is see if other franchises might offer more in return for Ben Gordon. These Brooklyn Nets trade rumors make a lot of sense on paper, so fantasy basketball owners might want to pay close attention to both players. Their values would both go up with a trade like this.
