    Default Mavs & Nets trade

    The Dallas Mavericks and New Jersey Nets have reached a verbal agreement on a trade that will send reserve forward Kris Humphries and exiled swingman Shawne Williams to the Nets and bring forward Eduardo Najera back to Dallas for a second stint after the Mavericks acquired him in the 2000 draft.

    NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Friday night that the Nets agreed to use a trade exception to absorb the $2.4 million expiring contract of Williams, which clinched the deal. Dallas sent Williams away from the team last season over concerns about his professionalism and did not let him return this season.

    Sources said both teams have signed off on the swap but formal NBA approval is not expected before Monday when the league office reopens.

    Sources said the Nets will waive Williams as soon as they get him and must also release another player -- all signs as of Friday night pointed to former first-round pick Sean Williams -- to create the required roster space to make the trade.

    Poor Hump. He was a reserve C/PF on an actual contender. He actually could have seen minutes in a playoff setting, and possibly even go toe to toe with some of the great teams in the West. And now? Yeesh. Feel bad for the guy.
