Earlier this season, when the Boston Celtics looked like they were a few years away from being good and the Brad Stevens experiment was just beginning, big man Kris Humphries seemed open to a trade. He had just arrived this past offseason in the blockbuster Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce trade with the Nets, but Humphries seemed open to changing teams one more time.

Then friends were made and the Celtics got good, causing Humprhies to apparently change his mind. According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, the Celtics big man is more than happy to stick around for the foreseeable future.

“I want to be a part of this whole, building this team and doing all that stuff with the new coach and all that, I want to be here,” he said. “You never know if they want you or they don’t want you or what their plans are, but I like Boston, my teammates. I’m just getting a chance to play with [Rajon] Rondo a little bit now.”

Just because Humphries wants to stay, doesn’t mean it will happen. He’s a free agent at the end of the season and Humphries can only hope that bringing him back is one of the ways the Celtics think they can improve their roster.
