Gordon, 29, has a $13.2 million player option for next season. Humphries, 28, signed a two-year, $24 million contract in the offseason, but has struggled ever since, and his playing time has decreased substantially.

Gordon is averaging 13.1 points per game on 44.1 percent shooting, including 41.7 percent from 3-point range. The Nets rank 21st in 3-point shooting.

Nets starting shooting guard Joe Johnson is averaging 38 minutes per game. Johnson, 31, has been the anchor of the second unit for the majority of the season as well.

Nope, just play Marshon more minutes and problem solved. The backup guards Marshon and CJ are good enough for us, if we really want to trade Humphries its better be someone like Paul Milsap. Ben Gordon cant do anything to improve the Nets.

Yes... or more than Hump at least.

He's still one of the best shooters in the game and we lack shooters on the wings. He's still an expirer next season as well and would probably have more value.

Still I dont think we need to go after Gordon, just play Marshon more and problem resolved. The fact that Marshon has not been playing well this season is mostly the coach's fault, not the player himself. Avery Johnson does not know how to coach, and even PJ Carlesimo cant seem to utilize Marshon.

Default Re: Would Ben Gordon help the Nets?

it's the attitude thing that scares me more than anything else. of course, i don't recall gordon having a history of this stuff.

still, we need LEADERS as much as we do talent. this team is professional-enough to beat the weak teams, but doesn't seem to have the fire or team spirit to go much further.

on that note, i liked what reiter just said about the lakers vs. heat dynamic:
Quote:
This shouldn’t be rocket science, true, but the NBA and sports in general aren’t all that different than life. We get tempted by the sexy and easy choices — by the thrills that seem to break the monotony — without always getting down to the gritty details of whether or not the alluring will work, or last, or bring us the joy we think will follow so easily.

It’s true in marriage. True in work. True in relationships. True in following our dreams or trying to lead a simple, happy, easy life.

...

The Miami Heat wanted to be together. Wade and LeBron are close, legitimate friends. There’s an ease they bring out in one another, a refuge they can offer the other when storms (sometimes of their own making) wreak havoc on their season and spirits. Chris Bosh also has a camaraderie with those two guys that make the Big Three as much a social group as a basketball force.

...

The Lakers’ most important players this season are not universally loathed . . . other than in their own locker room. Let’s stop playing pretend. Kobe can’t stand Dwight. Dwight can’t stand Kobe. They snipe at each other in the press. They have their media surrogates (Kobe) and their loved ones (cue Dwight’s dad) point the finger of blame at the other. They’re as dysfunctional toward each other as the Heat were two years ago toward everyone else.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/l...emistry-021413
that first part sounds so simplistic and cliched, but GM's keep overlooking that basic principle and putting together teams that underachieve.

i just don't want this asshole (dwight) at this point. i don't want anyone with a lousy attitude. i want the reverse. and no more people named "williams." something always goes wrong with that!

What the Nets cannot do is entertain Dwight's delusions this offseason, to acquire him they'd literally need the Lakers to change course for 2014 and another team to want to take on JJ or Gerald and not return salary. Difficult isn't even close to the right word. So the Nets can't entertain this thought and crap on their own players, players who will still be there once Dwight signs his next deal with some other team. Let the guys jell and fall I to roles knowing they are what the Nets want, not some pipe dream.

Looks like we did not trade for Gordon, smart move Id say. Just play Marshon more and the backup SG issue is fixed.
