Hawks Sign Kris Humphries To One-Year Deal

JULY 15: The Hawks have issued a press release officially announcing Humphries’ deal.

JULY 11: Free agent power forward Kris Humphries has agreed to a one-year, $4MM contract to remain with the Hawks, league sources informed Shams Charania of The Vertical (Twitter link).

Humphries drew quite a bit of interest during the free agent process, with the Wizards, Suns, Celtics, Nets, Wolves, Spurs and Hornets reportedly in the mix. In the end, he chose the team for which he played 21 games last season, averaging 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.0 minutes. He also appeared in 28 games with the Wizards and four games with the Suns last season. The 6’9” Humphries will be entering his 13th season.

Humphries figures to be the main backup to Paul Millsap, though he’ll have to compete for minutes with Mike Scott and Mike Muscala.

    Great move by the Hawks. He fits that system perfectly. This team is going to be a lot scarier than what people think. Howard > Horford. Shroeder > Teague.

    • If Howard continues to play like he has the past two years, Horford should be better with a bigger, less team-ball style of play. If Howard plays like early Houston/Orlando days…then Howard will easily be better than Horford.
