Stop the presses, folks, because we've got some interesting news regarding the New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets. According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, the team is basically planning to let rebounding machine Kris Humphries walk this offseason and use the $8 million saved to lure one of two power forwards to the team: Kevin Garnett or Ersan Ilyasova.
