Kris Humphries and Ben Gordon could be switching places. The Brooklyn Nets and Charlotte Bobcats are discussing a swap, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.
Broussard wrote that a deal isn't imminent.
But this deal makes sense for the Bobcats, who desperately need frontcourt help, and Humphries is capable of averaging a double-double if given the minutes (and there should be plenty in Charlotte).
Would the Nets slide Joe Johnson to small forward and play Gordon at
shooting guard? He'd add another shooter to the mix, and he's having an OK season (averaging 13.1 points). Broussard writes that the Nets envision Gordon remaining in a sixth-man role

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.
“Lucky I didn’t have Jay drop him from the team” – Kanye. Well it looks like Mr. West was just a year ahead of the curve, The Brooklyn Nets are in trade talks with the Charlotte Bobcats according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard. The trade would send Hump to the Bobcats for veteran guard Ben Gordon.

It's not often you see NBA players air ball jump shots unless the shot gets tipped. Mirza Teletovic of the Brooklyn Nets accomplished this feat last night.....three consecutive times.
Although Mirza only averages about eight minutes and 3.4 points a game, he still needs to shoot better than this. I would almost have to compare this to a hat trick in soccer or hockey...
Praise whatever (if any) deity you follow - Bradley Beal is ready to play again!
As reported by Gene Wang of the Washington Post, main man is set to return to the lineup tonight against the Brooklyn Nets after missing the last five games with a wrist injury that occurred back on January 18 in Denver. Although Beal initially played through the discomfort for a few games, he noticeably...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Kobe Bryant shrugged off a scoreless first half to finish with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and the Los Angeles Lakers overcome a 20-point second-half deficit to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 100-93 Friday night.
The Lakers avoided a costly defeat to the NBA's worst team and pulled within three games of .500.
Bryant attempted only two shots...
Yeah...Hendo dunked on Howard...AGAIN!
I watched this game from wire to wire. The Bobcats played a great game the entire time. Unfortunately there are 2 things that will cost you a game. Well…in all honesty, there would be 3. The first would be not having the most points at the end of the game. Well, check that off the list for the night. There are 2 more...

I guess that’s not technically true, otherwise I couldn’t be typing anything. But still, after every few sentences I manage to force out, I stare at the box [...]
