Devin Kharpertian#HumpMarShonAndAPick is back!
The Brooklyn Nets offered forward Kris Humphries and guard MarShon Brooks to the Atlanta Hawks for power forward Josh Smith, according to a report from the New York Daily News. The Hawks rejected the offer. The Nets, seeing that they likely don't have the assets to acquire Josh Smith, have instead re-focused on Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap in an effort to fill their power forward hole.
The 6'8" Millsap has averaged 14.9 points and 7.4 rebounds in 30.3 minutes per game this season, shooting 48.6% from the field. His PER of 20.6 ranks third among qualified power forwards, behind just Tim Duncan and Blake Griffin.
Utah Jazz Vice President of Basketball Operations & former G.M. Kevin O'Connor and Nets G.M. Billy King are no strangers to a deal -- they orchestrated the deal in February 2011 that brought Deron Williams to the then-New Jersey Nets after King had struck out in his quest to acquire Carmelo Anthony.
