Nets Interested in Ben Gordon?

According to Chris Broussard of

The Nets and Bobcats have had discussions about a trade that would send Charlotte’s Ben Gordon to Brooklyn for Kris Humphries, according to league sources.

The talks are ongoing, but sources said no trade is imminent.

A Gordon-for-Humphries trade works financially as both players make $12 million a year.

The Nets’ interest in Gordon stems from their need for better ways to space the floor. Ranked 21st in the league in 3-point shooting, Brooklyn regularly has seen opponents clog the lane.

The 29-year-old Gordon, a sixth man in Charlotte, averages 21.4 points and 3.6 assists per 36 minutes, shooting 41.7% from three-point range. Humphries has been in and out (mostly out) of the Nets’ rotation all season.

Adding Gordon to the Nets’ lineup could make for a few interesting lineup combinations, including a starting lineup with Joe Johnson at the small forward position, shifting Gerald Wallace to power forward.

According to Howard Beck of the New York Times, the Bobcats proposed the trade, and it’s up to the Nets to decide whether or not to accept it.
