Did Humphries Deal Block a Dorell Wright Trade?

The Nets reportedly tried to get Dorell Wright from the Heat last week but the deal fell through. Miami would have sent the 6'10" Wright to New Jersey for the Nets' $3.73 million trade exception. Dealing Wright would have put them under the luxury tax. But the Mavs demanded the Nets take Shawne Williams in the Kris Humphries/Eduardo Najera deal. To make that work, the Nets had to send the TE to Dallas instead.
