After the Boston Celtics acquired power forward Kris Humphries from the Brooklyn Nets in the deal that sent power forward Kevin Garnett, swingman Paul Pierce and guard Jason Terry to the Nets, it looked like the Celtics wanted to find a taker for Humphries.
However, both sides have enjoyed their time together despite the Celtics’ poor season and Humphries’ agent, Arn Tellem, and the Celtics have discussions on a new contract.
“Look at the direction we’re heading in,” Humphries told Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald. “Obviously this year there was disappointment. But [coach] Brad [Stevens is] a winner, Ainge has proven to be a winner on multiple levels. The organization and fans are great. The chance to be part of a playoff team here will be great. I think it’s possible. Ultimately it comes down to what the players do, but it’s one of those things where you get comfortable somewhere, and hopefully you can be there for a while and have success.”
Humprhries is averaging 8.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game this season.
