The Brooklyn Nets have been incredibly active in trade talks but have not been able to acquire anyone with their not-so-glamorous package of Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a draft pick. They wanted Dwight, then they wanted Josh Smith, and now they are trying to acquire a player GM Billy King wanted last season, Turkish stud Ersan Ilyasova. According to ESPNs Marc Stein: Nets have made play this week for Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova, I’m told, but their trusty Kris Humphries/MarShon Brooks bundle was rejected — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 21, 2013 The Milwaukee Bucks believe in Ilyasova, so much that they rewarded him last offseason with a 5 year, $40 million dollar deal. He is an excellent rebounder and doesn’t get the credit he deserves as a perimeter shooter where he connects on 44% of his attempts. The Nets continue to pursue the top available players as the trade deadline approaches but nobody seems to be interested in their standard package. It is unlikely they get a deal done at this point with their limited assets. Meanwhile, the Bucks appear to be in the best position to get a deal done for a marque player.
