Report: Celtics remain interested in re-signing Hump

Kris Humphries impressed me with his work ethic and production (8.4 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 18 PER) last season but I don’t see a role for him next year. 

The Celtics have 5 bigs locked in for next season: Jared Sullinger, Brandon Bass, Kelly Olynyk, Vitor Faverani and Joel Anthony.

It’s obvious we want Sully, Olynyk and Vitor to log as much court time as possible. One could argue that Bass deserves “showcase” minutes to enhance his deadline trade value. And Anthony is a “break glass in case of emergency” type guy.

Where would Hump play? And more importantly, why would he play? Unless Ainge pulls off a few deals in the coming weeks, we are bound for the lottery once again.

    Joel Anthony. Are you serious? Humphreys would get minutes and they’d be productive

    I think Humphreys would either be included in a trade for Kevin Love or kept to play alongside Kevin Love if we went that route. The celtics will trade for Love by the 10th or 11th( thats when their $10M+ trade exception expires) and build around him and Rondo OR they will not get the trade done and go the opposite direction and trade Rondo, Green and Wallace if possible.

      He IS from Minnesota. He was one of the best swimmers ever to come from there!

    Hump was probably our most consistent player last season.

  • Gary Carter

    We do not need him if we are lottery bound again and again and again again again

  • Rich Jensen

    5 bigs and 15 roster spots. They can keep Hump if the price is right.
