The Brooklyn Nets are chasing Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. Where do things stand?
The two teams are engaged in discussions. But one source said while "there has been lots of talk, nothing is close yet."
This comes as the February 21 trade deadline inches closer. Who would go in a potential deal? The Nets are offering Kris Humphries and MarShon Brooks. As Broussard reports, getting J-Smoove out of the ATL is going to take more than those two, say, a future first-round pick.
Anthony Morrow could also be involved in such a deal. And there's more:
ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported Saturday that the Hawks want a young center in return for Smith. The Nets may have to get a third team involved to pull off a trade for Smith.
The trade works financially, but I'd take this one with a grain of salt for one big reason: Smith's impending free agency. Why would the Hawks tie up a bunch of money in Kris Humphries for two seasons when they'd have more salary cap room to go after Dwight Howard and Chris Paul by simply letting Smith walk in free agency?

PIECE OF THE PUZZLE
The Nets have been very aggressive during the last two trade deadlines and will seemingly be active this year, as they are reportedly pursuing Josh Smith.
ATLANTA Over the next nine days, you'll be inundated with a slew of rumor-based pieces speculating on the trade status of Hawks forward Josh Smith, who'll be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.
This isn't one of 'em.
Instead, we'll operate under the highly plausible scenario that Smith remains with Atlanta past Feb. 21 (NBA trade deadline) and...
One thing is certainly clear; the Nets plan to be busy before the Feb. 21 trade deadline.
Just a few short hours after I finished a story about the possible Kris Humphries for Ben Gordon trade that has been talked about, ESPN’s Chris Broussard reports that the Nets are very interested in Atlanta forward Josh Smith. Both the Nets and the Hawks have discussed a possible trade for...
Josh Smith activated full-troll-mode in Dallas, where he drained a career-high four three-pointers (on just five tries) as the Hawks defeated the Mavericks 105-101. Needless to say, he also did some really stupid ****; even his made three-pointers were actually stupid ****, but they happened to not be airballs somehow. Smith didn’t do nearly as much stupid **** as the Mavericks...
The Brooklyn Nets are currently the fifth seed in the East and capped out for the foreseeable future, because of over 300 million dollars committed in the off-season.

However, word is that they are going hard after Atlanta Hawks’ star forward, Josh...
James Harden has an idea of what friend purgatory looks like, and it involves a lot of time with Kris Humphries.
The two NBA players are appearing in a new ad for Foot Locker, and Humphries — who took his share of flak during his relationship with Kim Kardashian — is once again the butt of the joke. In the commercial, Harden gets on one of his friends for wearing the same pair...
A league source has confirmed a report that the Nets and Bobcats have had preliminary talks about sending power forward Kris Humphries to Charlotte for guard Ben Gordon.
While the deal isn't etched in stone, a change would provide big ups for each team.
The Feb. 21 trade deadline is less than two weeks away but Humphries claims he's not distracted by all the talk.
Kris Humphries, whose name was involved in a potential trade for Ben Gordon, would be included in a deal for Josh Smith as well.
Not long ago, the Atlanta Hawks were one of the bigger surprises in the NBA. However, their strong first two months appear to be a distant memory with the club on a run of inconsistent play since.
The Dallas Mavericks hope their promising homestand can help spark them back toward the .500 mark, and they'll go for a third straight victory Monday night against a Hawks team that...
Ben Gordon is just the sharpshooting veteran guard that would give the Nets the scoring kick off the bench they haven't had in awhile
You thought the Nets were out of the trade rumors game for the meantime, right? Well, if you did think that, you would be wrong as a recent report has placed Brooklyn in possible trade...
