Sheridan: Blazers F/C J.J. Hickson Would OK Trade To Nets

Craig Mitchelldyer-US PRESSWIRE

Portland Trail Blazers forward/center J.J. Hickson would accept a trade to the Brooklyn Nets.

Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com reports that Portland Trail Blazers forward/center J.J. Hickson would have approved a trade to the Brooklyn Nets.

Hickson made it known that he would only waive his trade veto if he was dealt to the Brooklyn Nets, but a trade between the teams was looking highly unlikely as the final hour before the 3 p.m. deadline arrived.

Brooklyn would only be willing to do a Hickson deal if they were sending back Kris Humphries, and other players would have to be included to keep Portland under the luxury tax.

But Portland has no interest in Humphries, according to a source close to the Blazers who said Portland preferred to acquire one of the Nets' young players or Eurostash players along with a draft pick.
