Woj: Nets Offering Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and Picks for Paul Pierce

 

With their attempts at acquiring Josh Smith likely floundering, the Brooklyn Nets have appeared to make a run at Paul Pierce according to reports from Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Nets’ offer centered on forward Kris Humphries, guard MarShon Brooks and a first-round draft pick, but the Celtics want a more substantial package to consider moving Pierce, league sources said.

“The Celtics still highly value Pierce and it wouldn’t make sense to trade him for that kind of a package if they’re keeping Kevin Garnett,” one league source said.

Boston has shown interest in forward Mirza Teletovic and securing another possible first-round pick, but the Nets have shown no inclination to pay that steep of a price for Pierce.

CH’s Take: We haven’t addressed the possibility of a Nets trade this year, (who was in the running for Pierce last year as well), simply because their assets are awful. Upon further reflection of this belief, and the Nets’ reported offer, the sentiment stands. In fact, if Danny Ainge was even close to considering this kind of an offer, I would have feared for his safety in greater Boston area in the coming days given how rightfully beloved Pierce is in Boston.

Forgot the fact from a basketball standpoint the move is awful. Humphries is a strong rebounder who can’t play much defense. Brooks is a guy the C’s could have drafted two years ago, but drafted JaJuan Johnson over him instead. The first round picks will be towards the end of the first round for years to come, making them a relative crap shoot to be worth anything of value.

Once you get past all that though, just the image of Humphries, one of the most disliked players in the game, in a Celtics uniform, would be a bit too much to stomach. You’d hope someone in the front office would at least make Ainge aware of that.

All things considered, probably nothing to see here. These kinds of offers though show you why Pierce is unlikely to go anywhere this season.

    Humphries can rebound very well – 10-11 per game if given playing time…Brooks is young, athletic, and can score given the opportunity. I am not saying the should trade Pierce1 But these young guys each have something to offer…and on Doc's teams, everybody gets up to play D whether they are bad or good defensive players before coming in.

    The Nets are like that guy in your fantasy league who keeps proposing terrible trades like… Kris Humphries and Marshon Brooks for anyone until you block his email. Humphries is an overpaid backup big and Brooks is a 24 year old offense only guard who's currently backing up Keith Bogans. Are the Nets delusional, or do teams just enjoy snickering at them more than gently explaining that their package is worth nothing?

    I guess you can hope that you find the right GM, but the problem for the Nets is that Billy King works for them…

      This made me laugh out loud. Thanks. Such a perfect analogy.

    I made this post to collect your -1's so we can get an idea of how many people hate this proposition.

  • Anthony

    The face of the franchise for a "really cool guy" and a guy we passed on with JJJ….. laughable.

  • KillerGymRat

    Clearly the Nets want to dump those guys bad. Duh. Because they are capped out and have $12 million tied up for the rest of this season and next on Hump the Chump a role player that Reggie Evans is putting to shame with his play. You think they'd at least be smart enough to pair him up with a real asset.

    Sure here's our team captain and hall of famer for two guys not even good enough to be high in the rotation of a mediocre team…thanks, Brooklyn.

    this is how imagine this decision was reached by the NETS front office:
    Guy 1: The celtics are not going to make this trade
    Guy 2: @#%& it. Danny might be drunk
    Everyone: "meh." + shoulder shrugs

    If we make a trade – and that's a really big if – my guess is (this is off the top of my head running through at least a few options that might give Danny pause) it would be with a team like Houston, Utah, Cleveland, Milwaukee or maybe Memphis, but honestly, I don't think anything major is likely.

    • Phil725

      If the Kings are dealing (which they apparently are since they just flipped a rookie big man taken in the top 5 for Patrick Patterson,) I'd get them on the phone immediately. It's impossible to lose a deal with Sacramento, major, minor, whatever.

      • The Cardinal

        True dat…I keep trying to figure out who we have (within reason) that they (and anyone else) would want, but that's the situation with every potential trade partner, which is why I think at best, a minor move might happen. If I were in charge, Barbosa, Fab, Sea Bass and maybe Lee (I'm on the fence there) might be expendable.

        Rondo? Not unless you bring back a C/PF who is either top 10 right now or has that potential, and I don't see that happening at this juncture. Just forget the nonsense surrounding PP and KG, because I really think that KG would simply go to the house if PP were traded, and I don't see KG waiving his no-trade clause under any circumstances.

    Humphries?!? For Pierce? What a joke. Did Jay Z come up with that gem? Screw Brooklin.

  • Switcharoo

    Pierce

    Celtic

    For Life

    Period

  • Vincent

    Maybe I do this trade if the Nets add some picks… like first rounders for 10 straight years.

    Hahahahahaaaaaaa lol
