Kris Humphries is getting mentioned in NBA trade rumors that don't include the Orlando Magic now. Marc Stein reported that the Brooklyn Nets offered Humphries a three-year deal worth $24 million at that the Charlotte Bobcats then offered $22 million over three seasons.
This new bidding war has created a situation where Humphries could end up choosing to go to Charlotte or stay in Brooklyn and compete with the new collection of stars. If Humphries does decide that he wants to go to Charlotte, Brooklyn will try its hardest to pull off a sign-and-trade deal in order to get back a trade exception that they could use at a later date.
Charlotte is really trying to fix their roster and adding someone like Humphries to the front line would serve as a huge improvement. The team would have to increase their offer to be on par with what the Nets are offering, but that doesn't seem like a stretch if the two sides can work out that sign-and-trade deal.
This is a long way from Humphries simply resigning with Brooklyn in order to become a piece sent down to Orlando in some form of a Dwight Howard trade. It is quite clear that Brooklyn is trying to move on from those negotiations and sending Humphries to Charlotte would become a bold move.
Do you think that Kris Humphries could become an impact player for the Charlotte Bobcats? Should the Brooklyn Nets stop getting involved in all these NBA trade rumors?
