Default Thoughts on Nets not making a deal before trade deadline

The Brooklyn Nets have to be somewhat disappointed about not making a trade to improve their roster. Sure, GM Billy King said he wasn’t expecting to make one, but given how weak the Eastern Conference is, the Nets would’ve loved to have added an impact player like Josh Smith. In the end, though, they just didn’t have enough assets to entice the Hawks to make a deal.

Kris Humphries’ contract (two years, $24 million) would’ve been much more enticing to Atlanta had it been expiring this season rather than next. The Hawks are likely to go after Atlanta native Dwight Howard and Chris Paul in free agency. Even if Smith leaves, that’ll just open up more cap space. Taking on Humphries’ $12 million salary for next season would’ve hurt their flexibility. Adding prospects like MarShon Brooks, Bojan Bogdanovic and a late first-round pick wasn’t worth the sacrifice.

Well we really do not have good trade assets this season, so forget about it. Hopefully next season there will still be allstar players like Smith and Milsap available for us to go after.

I'm not surprised at all that we didn't make a move. Hump's contract will be a really great asset next season so good thing we didn't waste it on something ridiculous. Please start Hump though.

Problem is, there may not be as good players like Josh Smith and Paul Millsap on the block next season. Hopefully we dont trade for the likes of Ben Gordon.
