Just in case you wondered why the Nets had trouble trading Kris Humphries and his $12 million contract at the deadline….
Humphries has played less than 15 minutes in five of the Nets last six games, and he played just two minutes against the Bulls on Tuesday. Now he’s not even going to get to play that much, tweets Stephen Bondy of the New York Daily News.
The Nets brought Humphries back for a couple years under their “we have to put some kind of team together to get Deron Williams back, let’s overpay everyone” plan. They needed size and rebounding, Humphries brought those things. By the way Brooklyn fans, I hope you like this roster pretty much as is because you are locked into it for a while.
Humphries was never a great player but he was a strong rebounder, played within himself most of the time and was pretty efficient when he did shoot. This season he shoots less and isn’t doing it as well, and he’s fallen out of favor with P.J. Carlesimo.
The Nets will again try to move Humphries this summer, but that likely isn’t going to go a lot better than it did at the deadline. At $12 million a year, there isn’t a market for Humphries.

She’s a San Antonio assistant coach

Key for the Wizards is this is a one-year deal, so they save their cap space for a Kevin Durant offer next summer.
Jul 3, 2015, 4:00 PM EDT
This is a huge blow to the Clippers roster.
Jul 3, 2015, 3:40 PM EDT
This was expected, now the Knicks move forward with Robin Lopez.
Jul 3, 2015, 2:52 PM EDT
Solid deal in a vacuum, but in Sacramento…
Report: Knicks to sign Robin Lopez to four-year, $54 million contract (unless DeAndre Jordan changes his mind)
Jul 3, 2015, 1:58 PM EDT
More evidence Jordan won’t pick Knicks
Jul 3, 2015, 1:35 PM EDT
Washington could land David West
Jul 3, 2015, 12:07 PM EDT
Third year is reportedly a team option
Jul 3, 2015, 11:08 AM EDT
I doubt Sacramento is celebrating quite yet
Jul 3, 2015, 10:31 AM EDT
Brooklyn making most of a self-inflicted bad situation
Jul 3, 2015, 9:50 AM EDT
If LaMarcus Aldridge signs elsewhere, San Antonio makes a lot of sense
Jul 3, 2015, 9:14 AM EDT
So Knicks are probably getting Robin Lopez
Jul 3, 2015, 8:30 AM EDT
In this market even if these deals are misses, they are correctable ones.
Jul 3, 2015, 8:00 AM EDT
I don’t think the Lakers are all that serious here.
Jul 3, 2015, 2:19 AM EDT
Sacramento had made a big push but again missed out on their target.
Jul 2, 2015, 11:31 PM EDT
Martin had hoped to return full-time last season, but the opportunity never materialized.
Jul 2, 2015, 10:34 PM EDT
Sacramento needs to overpay much more than that to lure free agents.
Jul 2, 2015, 9:22 PM EDT
Lopez is solid, and New York and L.A. need talent after striking out with the big names thus far.
Report: Damian Lillard planning L.A. visit to try to convince LaMarcus Aldridge to re-sign with Blazers
Jul 2, 2015, 8:21 PM EDT
Interesting wrinkle to the Aldridge free agency saga.
Jul 2, 2015, 7:07 PM EDT
The Wizards will only give up a future second-rounder.
