Options for the Nets Without Hump? Thinking about the Unthinkable

No one is saying that Kris Humphries is leaving or has less enthusiasm for the Nets.  Not yet anyway.  But as he declined comment on his future Wednesday after touring the Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital, wheels began turning in beat reporters' heads. What if, they wondered.

The most likely option is pursuing David West who is nearly five years older than Humphries and coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL. The two-time All-Star is a better scorer than Hump but a lesser rebounder.  There's always Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Nene. Others the Nets might pursue, like Thaddeus Young and Jeff Green, are more combo  forwards. On the current roster, pickings are slim: the disappointing Travis Outlaw and the rookie Jordan Williams.
