Gordon, 29, has a $13.2 million player option for next season. Humphries, 28, signed a two-year, $24 million contract in the offseason, but has struggled ever since, and his playing time has decreased substantially.

Gordon is playing decently. Why would we want to let go of him for a struggling Kris Humphries or a struggling anybody? That's what's been wrong with our team from the get-go. And what if, G-d forbid, Humphries reunites with Kim Kardashian.....................

When Gordon is hot he can light it up, but when his shot is off he's little more than a chucker who plays no defense. At least Humphries can rebound. He's averaging 7/game in limited minutes.

Gordon from the floor the last 3 games: 2-5, 4-13, 3-10.

Kris would be a good addition to the Bobcats.

Accepted.

I guess that one issue with the Cats is who we have that other teams would want (well, some of our newer guys) and those who we'd like to get rid of (Diop) wouldn't have any takers. I would have given my eye-teeth for Chris Kaman or Chris Anderson but who would we have to give up to get players like them. But we really do have talent in Walker, Taylor and Mullens and Humphries does have a lot to offer. So I can let go of Gordon. He's sort of like Diaw was. You never knew who was going to show up on any given night.

So true. He was 1-6 last night.

Considering Gordon got into an argument with Dunlap last week this trade would be nice for the Bobcats. Both of their contracts expire after next season so it isn't as if we would be taking on additional salary, and Humphries would help in a department that we desperately need him, and thats rebounding.

I just hope the Nets are serious about it. It seems like they hold the cards on this one.
