This is the “go-to” trade for Nets fans, so much that it’s almost become a running joke. “We want Pau Gasol? Hump, MarShon and a pick!” “How about Josh Smith? Hump, MarShon, and a pick!” “Let’s get LeBron James! #HumpMarShonAndAPick!”
As fun as it is, they are the two most obvious Nets trade assets, which is why they come up in nearly every scenario. But they won’t be enough to acquire a player like Josh Smith; the picks won’t be valuable enough to make up for the enormous talent gap.
