MarShon Brooks (along with Brook Lopez) could be used in a trade for Dwight Howard, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger. The Nets' chances of getting D12"are probably 50-50," the newspaper says.

The Star-Ledger writes: "[Brooks] could be on the move, along with Lopez, if the team is able to swing a deal for Howard."

Brooks' inclusion into a deal for Howard isn't a surprise. The former Providence Friar has emerged as one of the better rookies in this class.
In 25 games, he's averaged 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.1 steals, .4 blocks and 1.9 turnovers in 30.4 minutes. He also hit 32 3-pointers. He's dealt with leg and toe injuries, but bounced back with a career-high 24 point night just before the break (ironically, in a loss to the Magic).

If Brooks is dealt, Anthony Morrow's value could rise (depending on what other pieces the Nets would acquire).

Of course, the trade rumors also clash with reports that Howard saying that staying in Orlando is "a big possibility."
