Kris Humphries

  1. Humphries, Stackhouse to get chance as Nets reshape rotation

    Mar 14, 2013, 2:03 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets' Kris Humphries puts a shot up over Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    P.J. Carlesimo realizes that the Nets are in danger of being a one-and-done playoff team and that he doesn’t have a lot of weapons to turn to that can change that around. His hands are pretty tied. So he’s going to take one more look at what he’s already got. Carlesimo tried heavy doses of…

  2. Dwight Howard returns to Orlando, which will be fine without him

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:47 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Tuesday night will be cathartic for some Magic fans — Dwight Howard returns to Orlando and they will get to lustily boo the guy who left them. The guy they feel screwed them and the franchise over. Magic fans can sing “Forget You” at the top of their lungs. They can boo the Lakers as…

  3. Coach tells Kris Humphries he is out of Nets rotation

    Mar 6, 2013, 3:20 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    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…

  4. Andrew Bynum has swelling in his knee, says he may not play this season

    Mar 1, 2013, 2:06 PM EST

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Welcome to the Sixers nightmare. Their worst-case scenario was to trade Andre Iguodala and other young players and get nothing from Andrew Bynum because his nagging knee injuries flared up. Now that’s exactly where we are. Andrew Bynum admitted Friday that he had some swelling after recent practice, reports John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com. He has…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  6. MarShon Brooks with alley-oop to himself (VIDEO)

    Feb 25, 2013, 10:33 AM EST

    MarShon Brooks

    Let’s be honest here — MarShon Brooks made a nice up-and-under move then missed the shot. But did what your junior high coach always told you and followed his shot — that led to the dunk. Brooks has skills but no way he intentionally passed off the backboard, had it carom off the rim, then…

  7. Why no blockbusters at NBA trade deadline? Here are three reasons.

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The narrative of the NBA Trade Deadline 2013 is going to be that it was a dud. Fans seemed to think the Lakers were going to trade Dwight Howard. Or the Celtics were going to blow it up and trade Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The fans expected blockbusters and some of the national media…

  8. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  9. Trade Rumor Roundup: As deadline nears, lots of questions remain

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:16 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    It is now just a little less than 13 hours until the NBA trade deadline and we have had all of one whopping trade. Which means it’s going to be a very busy Thursday… probably. There are going to be deals, guys we expect to get dealt will get dealt, but there may be fewer…

  11. Report: Nets made pitch for Paul Pierce, were shot down

    Feb 20, 2013, 5:38 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    At this point, I pretty much picture Nets GM Billy King like the peanut vendor at a baseball game, walking around asking, “Who wants Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first round pick? Get them while they’re hot. Gotcha Humphries here!” Nobody’s buying. Not Danny Ferry in Atlanta for Josh Smith. And not Danny Ainge…

  12. Report: Suns, Bucks, Nets leaders in Josh Smith sweepstakes

    Feb 20, 2013, 4:30 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    If it appears two things are certain following the trade deadline now — Lakers fans will complain (because they always do) and Josh Smith will be in another uniform. The question now seems to be “where will Josh Smith play the rest of this season?” Followed by, “what about next season?” Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  13. Report: Nets still hoping Humphries, Brooks enough to get Josh Smith

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:36 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Atlanta doesn’t have to rush with Josh Smith. Well, sure, there is the trade deadline at 3 ET on Thursday. But they have the biggest name and best player available on the trade block right now and a lot of teams calling them. Atlanta GM Danny Ferry is not taking the first offer he sees.…

  14. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  15. Fear of tax may make this slower-than-usual trade deadline

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:59 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    All-Star weekend usually signals the official start of a frenzied week of rumors and eventually trades in the NBA. Everybody is in town — this year Houston — and general managers are talking face-to-face rather than texting and by Tuesday trades are picking up steam. But maybe not this year. If there was a buzz…

  16. Report: Increasingly desperate Nets now eye J.J. Hickson

    Feb 15, 2013, 5:18 PM EST

    J.J. Hickson

    General Manager Billy King really wants to get some help at the four spot for his Nets. Of course, that’s all about just helping his team out and has nothing to do with him being in the last year of his contact and his expensive team not impressing much. It’s not about saving his job.…

  17. Report: Bobcats working to trade Gordon after incident with coach

    Feb 14, 2013, 1:51 PM EST

    Ben Gordon

    Ben Gordon was already on the trade block — Charlotte had used him as part of an offer to Brooklyn to pry Kris Humphries away. So far the Nets haven’t taken the bait as they have shopped Humphries around for players the Nets actually want. But now the Nets have really stepped up their efforts…

  18. Report: Nets shift trade focus, target Paul Millsap of Jazz

    Feb 13, 2013, 10:35 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Brooklyn Nets GM Billy King wants to be a player at the trade deadline. Maybe it’s because he realizes his very expensive Nets roster is on the third tier in the East. Maybe it’s because King’s contract is up at the end of this season. Maybe when you combine those two facts with an impatient…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  20. Report: Nets going hard after trade for Josh Smith

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:15 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Atlanta Hawks

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov wants a contender. Badly. And he has to look at his Nets then look at the Heat and realize his side is not better than them. Or the Knicks. Or Pacers. Or Bulls (with Derrick Rose back). And so he has a team trying to swing a big deal for maybe…

  21. Lakers’ World Peace, Kobe make least-liked athletes list

    Feb 5, 2013, 6:31 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant smiles after making a free throw while Peace comes towards him during their NBA basketball game against Brooklyn Nets in Los Angeles

    As a professional athlete right now, you don’t really want to end up on a list with Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o — the public has turned on them. But two Lakers joined them on Forbes Magazine’s list of the least popular athletes — Metta World Peace and Kobe Bryant. Well, it’s not Forbes list,…

  23. Report: Phil Jackson “intrigued” by idea of Nets job’

    Dec 28, 2012, 9:40 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Thursday there came a direct statement from Phil Jackson’s agent that the legendary 11-time champion coach was not interested in the Brooklyn Nets coaching job in he wake of Avery Johnson’s firing. But an agent’s job is to negotiate, so you take that with a grain of salt. You can’t really negotiate without leverage and…

  24. Nets GM King not sure what will work for team, just knows it wasn’t Johnson

    Dec 27, 2012, 5:35 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets Press Conference Announcing Firing Of Head Coach Avery Johnson

    Nets GM Billy King spoke with the media about the firing of coach Avery Johnson and this was my takeaway from it: He doesn’t know what’s wrong but he knows Johnson wasn’t the answer. “Watching us, we just didn’t have the same fire we had when we were 11-4,” King said. “Been talking with Avery,…

  25. Brooklyn Nets fire coach Avery Johnson

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:21 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    This is how fast things turn in the NBA — Avery Johnson was the NBA coach of the month in October and November but now has been fired in December. The Brooklyn Nets — who have gone 3-10 in December with one of the worst defenses in the NBA and an offensive leader in Deron…
