The Boston Celtics have been trying to figure out what to do with Kris Humphries for a while now but it appears they’ve found a suitor for him that they can ship him off to and get something they feel is more valuable in return.
Humphries has been mentioned with more than a few teams recently but there was always the possibility of him coming back with the Boston Celtics later this summer. He’s coming back but only briefly so as the Celtics have agreed to sign-and-trade Humphries on Tuesday.
According to NBA scribe Jared Zwerling and Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics have finally decided what to do with Humphries and have shipped him to the Washington Wizards in a sign-and-trade agreement.
In the in-the-works Kris Humphries deal, the Wizards would be using part of their trade exception they received in the Trevor Ariza deal.
