The Cleveland Cavaliers and Kris Humphries have finally been sucked into the 2012 NBA trade rumors. The team could potentially become part of the biggest blockbuster trade that the league has seen in years, possibly shifting the landscape of the Eastern Conference if it all goes down.
On Monday morning (July 9), rumors of Humphries getting sent from the Brooklyn Nets to Cleveland started to surface, showing that as many as three or four teams could get involved in a trade. This would, of course, become a trade involving Dwight Howard, with the Orlando Magic sending him to Brooklyn as part of the larger deal.
Brooklyn is going to have to figure out a way to get Cleveland more assets than just Humphries in a trade like this, especially because the Cavs are so far under the salary cap that they could just sign him as a free agent. Making tossing in a draft pick or two or even MarShon Brooks could get a deal of this magnitude completed.
Though the deal seems to be advancing toward a stage where it could actually go down, it still doesn't look like the teams are all willing to pull the trigger on it just yet. That could mean several days of negotiations ahead or a surprising twist that has the deal coming to fruition when everybody least expects it.
Do you think that the Cleveland Cavaliers should get involved in a trade for Kris Humphries? Is a trade with the Brooklyn Nets still in the best interest of the Orlando Magic?
