Kris Humphries?


I just remembered: Kris Humphries' contract expires after this season. Before this season, I wouldn't have cared much, unless his contract was being used to help us dump salary, but "The Hump" (they seriously call him that in NJ) has taken it to another level this year, averaging 8.7 ppg (53% from the field, and a .562 TS%), 9.3 rpg (2.7 offensive), a block, and an assist in only 25 minutes per game. He has an 18.0 PER, even with a low usage rate, and is by far NJ's best player in both WS/48 and Wins Produced (Shout-out, Gulk!). The Nets' d-rating is almost 5 points lower with Humphries on the court, and he rarely turns the ball over.

With all this going for him, you'd think the Nets would jump to sign him, but I don't really see Humphries in their long term plans. They just drafted Derrick Favors, who is showing enough in his rookie year that he should be their long-term solution at PF, and they just wasted a bunch of money on Travis Outlaw, Jordan Farmar, and Johan Petro, in addition to trading for Sasha Vujacic's horrible contract. I wouldn't be surprised if Humphries ended up hitting the open market, and I'd hope we make a run at him -- especially if Nene accepts his player option and the Grizzlies resign Marc Gasol. Greg Monroe is looking more and more like a legit starting Center, and the combined rebounding powers of Moose and Humphries would be freaking awesome. Plus, he's only 25!

Pros: Rebounding, Scoring efficiency, Defense, AthleticismDUNX, Can replace Ben Wallace as the most impressively ripped guy on the floor, when needed

Cons: He's dating Kim Kardashian, Rebounds might be a tad bit inflated due to playing next to Brook Lopez (5.7 rpg)
