It has been a rough season for Brooklyn Nets power forward Kris Humphries. Leading up to the NBA trade deadline, the Nets were aggressively attempting to trade Humphries and his outrageous $12 million contract, but the team was unable to find any suitors.
Humphries has been seeing his playing time rapidly decrease and it dipped to as low as only two minutes against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. Now, Humphries could be riding the pine for the remainder of the season after he was told he has been removed from the team’s rotation.

Brooklyn will likely try to trade Humphries once again in the summer, but finding a trade partner won’t be easy.
Humphries contract is simply too expensive for his mediocre play. Humphries has never been a spectacular player and the Nets now realize how serious of a mistake they made by overpaying him, but it is a contract that the Nets will be stuck with until it expires.
