NBA Rumors: Brooklyn Nets Going After Atlanta Hawks’ Josh Smith

8489925A few days ago, the Brooklyn Nets were thinking of getting Ben Gordon from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Kris Humphries so that they can add another three-point shooter to the mix. Humphries has played less minutes as of late as the Nets have preferred to play Reggie Evans, who is a better rebounder. The Nets are still dangling Kris Humphries but now they’re apparently going after a bigger player and an old trade partner. Check out this rumor by Chris Broussard from ESPN:

The Brooklyn Nets are aggressively pursuing a trade for Atlanta Hawks star forward Josh Smith, league sources told ESPN. The two teams are engaged in discussions, but one source said while “there has been lots of talk, nothing is close yet.”

Not only are the Nets willing to give up Humphries, but they’re also willing to give up Marshon Brooks, who has also played less minutes this season after a very good rookie campaign last season. But Brooks and Humphries wouldn’t be enough for Atlanta to take. Obviously, the Hawks want to get better and losing Smith for those two players doesn’t exactly make them better.

Josh Smith is a free agent after this season and wants something close to a max deal (or the max deal itself). Atlanta isn’t too sure about re-signing Smith for that amount of money but they don’t want to lose him, either, for nothing. So the Hawks are looking around for deals. They could also deal him for expiring contracts so they can have cap space for next season to sign other marquee free agents. It’s doubtful Dwight Howard would sign with the Hawks but they can certainly try.

The Hawks and Nets have ten days to decide on a deal before the trading deadline. Josh Smith is averaging 16.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.2 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game. His versatile play is always attractive though it can be maddening at times with his shot selection. The Hawks, who last played against the Hornets in a loss, will play the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.
