Nets: Kris Humphries (Jul 17 3:04 ET ) Humphries has agreed to a two-year, $24 million contract with Brooklyn.
The Scoop: Humphries will be part of a new-look group in Brooklyn that includes guards Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, center Brook Lopez, and forward Gerald Wallace, who all either decided to re-sign with the Nets this month, or in the case of Johnson, accept a trade from Atlanta to Brooklyn.
The Scoop:Humphries was dealing with nerve damage in his right hand that required surgery, and now he's really starting to play the role Washington envisioned upon acquiring him in a sign-and-trade during the offseason. "He goes in there and just bangs," Randy Wittman said.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nene and reserve Kris Humphries scored 16 points apiece, John Wall had 15 points and 10 assists, and the Washington Wizards improved their impressive start with a 98-93 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.
Kris Humphries played 26 minutes off the bench against the Magic on Saturday with 16 points, six rebounds and one block.
The Scoop:It's his second game in a row with at least 25 minutes and he's created a nice little role for himself. Humphries has been the primary bench big man and is an option in deep leagues. He could also be a solid pickup if/when Nene goes down.
Kris Humphries came off the bench for 12 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on Wednesday.
The Scoop:This was his best game of the season and he played 25 minutes. He's still not a waiver-wire target in most leagues, but is worth putting on your watch list to see if this is the start of a hot streak for the ex-Kardashian.
The short-handed Washington Wizards were thin in the frontcourt as they again fell in a season opener. With Nene and DeJuan Blair likely back from one-game suspensions Thursday night, the Wizards will try to bounce back by continuing their recent success against the Orlando Magic. Among Washington's notable absences Wednesday in Miami were Bradley Beal (wrist) and Martell Webster (back). Kris Humphries played after being considered a game-time decision following hand surgery, but Nene and Blair were suspended because of an incident in the preseason.
The Scoop:With DeJuan Blair and Nene suspended to start the season, Humphries could see big minutes against the Heat on Wednesday. While he's not the most exciting fantasy option, Humphries is a double-double threat any time he sees upwards of 25 minutes and could make for a sneaky plug-and-play option Wednesday night.
