Nets considering trading Humphries

The Brooklyn Nets could bolster their bench scoring and loosen their frontcourt logjam under a proposed trade with the Charlotte Bobcats.

The teams are considering a deal that would send Kris Humphries to Charlotte in exchange for Ben Gordon, according to a person briefed on the discussion. The person cautioned that it was "just talk" at this stage and "nothing concrete."

The proposed deal, which was first reported by ESPN, came from the Bobcats. Gordon, 29, averaged between 15 and 20 points a game in his first five seasons, all with the Chicago Bulls, although his production has declined in recent years. He is averaging 13.1 points a game this season, better than any of the Nets' reserves.

The Nets are desperate for three-point shooting, and Gordon could fill that need, with a career mark of .406 from the arc. He is younger than Jerry Stackhouse and Keith Bogans and more polished than MarShon Brooks.

Humphries lost his starting job to Reggie Evans, and he has been buried in a crowded frontcourt rotation that also includes Andray Blatche and Gerald Wallace. Trading Humphries could also open playing time for Mirza Teletovic.
