Report: Nets offered Humphries, Brooks, either Bogdanovic or draft pick for Josh Smith

Via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

The Nets are trying to make a deal for (Josh) Smith, too, and have offered Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, and either a future first-round pick or the draft rights to Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic, sources said.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports later followed up the report, noting that the Nets would almost assuredly have to acquire Smith before this year's trade deadline, as they'd have to move significant salary to fit under the luxury tax apron required to complete a sign-and-trade under the new collective bargaining agreement. Berger added that the "deadlock" between what the Hawks want (youth, draft picks) and what teams are offering (long-term salary) may push the odds slightly in Brooklyn's favor.

As I noted earlier, it'll be increasingly difficult for the Nets to pull off a deal for Smith, especially considering their lack of assets.

  1. NetsDaily would be sad if Bogdanovic goes. They loves them some Bojan updates.
