MarShon Brooks a top trade candidate, writes Marc Spears

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

With most NBA players (and most Nets players) now eligible to be traded as of Saturday, Marc J. Spears put together a list of who are the most likely players to be dealt ... and MarShon Brooks is on the list. But factors other than his on-court performance are likely to factor into a trade decision.

Spears writes of Brooks...

Brooks had a sensational rookie season averaging 12.6 points. But with the addition of Joe Johnson, Brooks has averaged just 6.2 points through his first 14 games this season. Sources said the Nets dangled Brooks in offseason trade talks, but his low contract number makes it difficult to get much of a return for him in a deal.

"They are one of the rare teams that can afford to keep their team at a championship level financially," an NBA GM said. "For them, the development of young players isn't important because they can overspend."

Others on Spears list include Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bynum, Jose Calderon, Tyreke Evans, Pau Gasol, Tyler Hansbrough, Gerald Henderson, Paul Millsap, Timofey Mozgov, Anderson Varejao and Derrick Williams.
