Although the Nets have been at the forefront of trade chatter in the last couple of weeks, most notably for wanting to rid themselves of Kris Humphries, team GM, Billy King, says the chances of a trade happening before Thursday’s deadline is at 10%.
According to ESPN NY:

Asked if the Nets might add a big name, King replied, “We could (or) we could not.”

1: Joe cool
