Default Re: Nets & Bobcats for some reason discussing Humphries for Gordon trade

These are two impact roleplayers. Guys like this are not unimportant. Both players are being totally wasted on the teams they're on. For that reason I'm happy for this trade.

However, Hump is going to a team that may as well not exist, and Gordon is going to a team where he won't play in the 4th quarter, and if he will, he'll never get the ball.

Well, I'm just glad to hear Ben Gordon's name again. I honestly thought he quit basketball, or died or something, about 3 or 4 years ago. I always liked him in Chicago.

Why did they trade for Gordon in the first place?
Maggette's contract will expire this year.

Why aren't they trying to trade for Boozer? That would make the most sense and the Nets would be a problem in the East.

The Bulls are likely not interested in Hump or Brooks. Those two are the Nets only assets.

Decent deal for the Bobcats they get some toughness on an awful front line, Humpries would be there best big man sadly if this happend. They don't need Gordan since they got enough SG/SF's and scoring PG's so I don't see why not a go for a veteran big who's out of favour elsewhere.

12 million for a guy that averaged a double-double the last two years, and you don't play him. I don't get it.
He has had very low confidence in himself and it's causing him to make horrible decisions on offense. Last year he was kinda a 2-3rd option(behind Deron and marshon). the season he came in as 5 option well behind wallace) so his role was to get rebounds and garbage buckets. That role also belonged to Reggie Evans who just happens to be a better rebounder and defender than humphries so Evans took Humphries spot. after that Hump lost his confidence and his IQ has been absolutely horrible. It's so weird seeing him preform this bad after him being very consistent in his NJ days

Because it came with a 1st round draft pick and this class of free agents is underwhelming at best.
