Hump Was Dwight Sticking Point?

In another a.m. Q. and A. on Twitter, Peter Vecsey says Rob Hennigan's refusal to take on Kris Humphries, even with a one year deal, ended Dwightmare III but the Nets have still not ended their pursuit of the big man.

"Nets were thisclose but could not close deal cause Magic would not take Humphries' 1-year pact in sign-n-trade. Everything else w done," Vecsey tweets. "There is a deal to be done at some point, no doubt, unless DH is traded elsewhere and commits long-term ... Again, BK is only out completely if Howard re-ups long term elsewhere."

And he notes, no player is likely to re-up with an extension. Even without Howard, who he says "honestly wants 2 play 4 Brooklyn", the Nets have done well, selling 9,600 season tickets thus far, compared to 1,500 at this point last year in Newark. As for chances Andrei Kirilenko signs with the Nets this season? "Zero," Vecsey says.
