The Brooklyn Nets are considering a trade to send Kris Humphries to the Charlotte Bobcats.
The proposed trade would be a simple player swap. The Nets would send Humphries to the Bobcats in exchange for Ben Gordon. Both players are making $12 million this year so no extra players or money would be involved.
Last offseason the Bobcats offered Humphries a three year, $28 million deal. He signed with the Nets instead for two years and $28 million. Over half a season later it looks like Charlotte never gave up on their man.
According to ESPN, the Nets interest in Gordon stems from their lack of three point shooting. The team currently ranks 21st in the league in the statistic. This season Gordon is shooting 41 percent on three point attempts.
The New York Times reports that Kris Humphries being traded to the Bobcats for Ben Gordon is nothing more than a rumor at this point. The publication claims there is nothing concrete, but the two sides have spoken.
The proposed trade reportedly came from the Bobcats, who are looking for front court help and see the Nets recently benched star as a fit.
By trading Gordon, the Bobcats would be losing their third-leading scorer, but ESPN’s Chris Broussard says the team feels comfortable with the guards they currently have.
A move to a smaller media market could be a good fit for Humphries. Reports have recently surfaced that his divorce with Kim Kardashian is not finalized, even though she is pregnant with Kanye West’s child.
What do you think? Would a Kris Humphries trade to the Bobcats make sense? Is he a good fit in Charlotte?
