Found February 20, 2013 on Pass The Pill:
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.

Brooklyn Nets offering uninspiring Kris Humprhies, MarShon Brooks package for Pierce, Smith, Ilyasova

If the Brooklyn Nets want Josh Smith, Paul Pierce or Ersan Ilyasova, they need to offer a sweeter deal than Kris Humphries and MarShon Brooks.

Bucks have decisions to make at deadline

The closer the calendar gets to Thursday's NBA trade deadline, the more rumors get thrown against the wall, with only a fraction of them actually sticking. Everything heard this time of year must be taken with heavy skepticism, but those plugged in around the league can usually pinpoint the teams making the most phone calls. This year, three teams have been listed by many as...

C's don't want Brooks & Kardashian for The Truth

The Nets have offered Marshon Brooks and Kris Humphries along with a first round pick for Paul Pierce.  Celtics politely declined.  This according to Wojo. He has more about the KG to the Clippers rumor in that article as well.  Sounds like it'd have to be a domino thing where Pierce gets dealt and then KG waives his no-trade clause and accepts the deal. That article also...

Atlanta Hawks interested in Monta Ellis in a potential Josh Smith trade

The Milwaukee Bucks have the assets to make a major trade. The Bucks have a lot of assets -- Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings, Ersan Ilyasova and a ridiculous number of expiring contracts -- to get a deal done.

Trouble In Milwaukee

Brandon Jennings wants out, but he’s a restricted free agent next summer. So he’s got less room to move, as opposed to Monta Ellis. Ellis may very well leave $11 mil on the table in order to become a free agent next season. This is huge, and best believe Ellis can be a legitimate contributor to a true contender next season. The Bucks are on the verge of losing their anchors.
