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 gashed his hand on the rim during a preseason game, damaging a nerve in his right pinkie finger, and he was given a 3-4 week timetable on Oct. 10. He's very questionable to play in the Wizards' season opener, and Nene will be serving a suspension, so more minutes should be available for DeJuan Blair , Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin.
The Scoop:He is making good progress and we should know more after tomorrow's consultation. He is still expected to be out until late October at the earliest. He is not recommended for standard leagues at the moment.
The Scoop:That means that Drew Gooden, DeJuan Blair, and Kevin Seraphin will all see some extended run backing up the power forward and center positions for the Wizards, however none of these guys makes for a very enticing fantasy play.
The Scoop:The gash required eight stitches, but at least he'll be able to maintain his conditioning until he's cleared to resume playing. DeJuan Blair, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin should each get more playing time in Humphries' absence.
Kris Humphries started in place of Nene at power forward in Monday.
The Scoop:We'll let you know what's up with Nene as soon as the information becomes available. There were no injuries reported before the game, so this is a surprise. If one thing is clear, it's that Humphries is third in the pecking order of Wizards big men.
The Scoop:Humphries isn't a 3-point threat but his solid jump shooting should earn him a reliable role backing up Marcin Gortat and Nene in a crowded frontcourt. Wizards writer Ben Standig suggests that Humphries "will be in the rotation, if not the first big man off the bench," but fantasy owners should leave him untouched on draft day.
The Washington Wizards have acquired forward Kris Humphries from the Boston Celtics for a protected 2015 second-round draft pick. Humphries appeared in 69 games, averaging 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds, last season with Boston. In 10 seasons with the Jazz, Raptors, Mavericks, Nets and Celtics, he is averaging 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds. Humphries had his best season in 2011-12 when he averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds for the Nets.
The Washington Wizards announced Saturday that they acquired power forward Kris Humphries from the Boston Celtics for a protected 2015 second round draft pick. Humphries averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in 19.9 minutes over in 69 games (30 starts) with Boston last season. In 10 seasons with the Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey and Brooklyn Nets and Celtics, Humphries has averaged 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 18.1 minutes over 627 games.
The Washington Wizards were finalizing a sign-and-trade deal Wednesday with the Dallas Mavericks to acquire forward DeJuan Blair, according to multiple reports. Blair averaged 6.4 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in a reserve role for the Mavericks last season. The move comes on the heels of the Wizards adding Kris Humphries from the Boston Celtics on Tuesday. Terms of the deal to land Blair were unknown, but the Wizards have a trade exception worth $2 million from Philadelphia and one for $1.3 million from Phoenix, along with the remaining portion of the $8.5 million exception from the three-team deal that landed Humphries while sending Trevor Ariza to Houston, according to the Washington Post.
The Scoop: None.
