The past few months have been pretty rough for Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries. After being removed from the rotation for a period, there are now whispers Humprhies will not be returning to the Nets come the 2013-14 season.
Per the New York Post:
Because of that, it seems quite unlikely that Humphries will still be on the team when the Nets reconvene this fall for training camp. In a summer where little is expected to happen because of the roster restrictions the Nets have – outside of the expected signing Bojan Bogdanovic and whoever they select in the draft next month – the possibilities of what the Nets could potentially get for Humphries’ expiring will undoubtedly be one of the biggest storylines of the offseason.
Humphries signed a two year, $24 million dollar contract in 2012 and now on the final year of that deal, the Nets are hopeful they’ll be able to use the elevated salary as tradeable asset. Of course, with a flooded market that is expected to be saturated in large, expiring (or near expiring) deals, it might be easier said than done.
